JUSTIN Ho will be out to maintain his number one status when he participates at the Fintel/Kidanet-sponsored squash tournament which starts in Suva next Monday.

Ho is back in the country after work commitments in Australia.

He will face stiff competition from rising star Marika Matanatabu.

Ho said he had been preparing for the tournament for more than a month.

"He said it was good to have tournaments so the interest in the sport remains.

"I have been working on my fitness," Ho said.

"I have had a layoff from active squash for some time. But it's now back to business with the Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea next year."

About 70 players are expected to participate in the week-long tournament.

In the men's division, matches will be played in the A, B, C and beginners categories. In the women's division, matches will be played in the A, B and beginners categories.

Squash Fiji life member Isimeli Cerelala said they would have a flashback on the development of the sport from the 1960s.

Cerelala said the annual general meeting would be held after a lapse of two years.
