World Championship Success Inspires the Next Generation at HKFC Squash  (by Malcolm Kerr)

 

Huge congratulations to Max Lee (HKFC 1) who led the Hong Kong men’s team to stunning success at the WSF Men’s World Team Squash Championships in Marseilles in December as they won a Bronze Medal, defeating France in their Quarterfinal before losing in a hard-fought semi with eventual champions Egypt.   

The brilliant achievements of Men’s and Women’s (World Team Champs Bronze 2016) national teams have firmly established squash as Hong Kong’s Most Successful Sport* and inspired a new generation of juniors to pursue their squash dreams with many working their way up through age-groups in leagues and tournaments in HK and around the World.   

Here are just a few stand-out tournament results achieved by HKFC juniors at international events in recent months:

To compete at an international level in any sport takes a huge amount of hard work and commitment and all these young players are a credit to HKFC and themselves.

Congratulations to all our Junior stars.  We will be proudly cheering them (and Max and Ling) on through the remainder of the league and tournament season!

*Hong Kong has 3 men and 3 women currently ranked in the World’s top 40 (including Leo Au (22), Max Lee (30), Annie Au (11) and Joey Chan (19) and HKFC’s Liu Tsz-Ling (36).  Both the Men’s (2017) and Women’s (2016) teams are current World Team Championship Bronze medallists  AND Max is the reigning Asian Men’s Champion.   (And don’t even get me started on Masters……)
