Ottawa, ON (December 3, 2019) -- From December 6th to 10th, The Club at White Oaks in beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario will open its doors to 320 junior squash players, along with their respective family and coaches, from across Canada and around the World.  The most prestigious junior tournament held in the nation, the 2019 Canadian Junior Open will mark the largest in the events history.

In order to accommodate the added number of participants, the tournament has been extended to five days, with boy’s matches beginning Friday, December 6th at 10 a.m. and girls matches beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday.  The event concludes on Tuesday, December 10th with all Championship Finals.

The 2019 Canadian Junior Open will showcase many of the world’s top young squash players, many of whom are National Champions in their home country.  The event is loved by players, coaches, and parents alike for its unique “all in one” atmosphere, with the hotel, squash courts, dining, and more all located within The White Oaks Resort and Spa.

“White Oaks is excited to be hosting the 2019 CJO and this year we will be using our NEW digital scoring system,” says Tournament Chair Matt Easingwood. “This system includes Live Scoring TV monitors for spectators on each court. No more dry erase boards for court control, it’s all digital and can be checked online from your mobile phone!

 “We are thrilled to see the growth and excitement around the 2019 Canadian Junior Open”, said Dan Wolfenden, Squash Canada Executive Director.  “The high-level competition and hosting excellence reputation has attracted players representing 16 different nations along with 195 of Canada’s top talented young players.”

"I always look forward to competing in CJO because it is full of tough competitors and it is such a fun environment,” said Canadian Molly Chadwick, #1 seed in Girls U17.  “Going in highly seeded presents unique challenges as there are high expectations, but my goal is always to compete at my highest level."

“This tournament is by far my favourite of the year, especially with the diversity in the draws, the different level of play we get, and of course the prestige that it has developed over the years,” said Canadian Nikhil Ismail, who will be competing for the Boys U19 title.  “I have been training really hard for this particular tournament and believe that I have a really good shot at winning it for the first time.”

"I have been coming to the CJO since I was 11 and have always participated each year through to this year (my grade 12 year).  I have had the chance to go to USJO, British and Dutch Opens and the CJO remains my favorite event as the accommodation/courts are all in one and the athletes have a chance to socialize.  My goal is to get to the finals and then see what happens!" – Canadian Lucia Bicknell, #2 seed Girls U19
