Squash aims to develop North base

NATIONAL squash coach Isimeli Cerelala wants to carry out development work in the Northern Division as part of his search for talent for international competition.

He said young players could compete in the 2015 Pacific Games, Commonwealth Youth Games and other regional competitions.

Cerelala said if they were to find the talent now and hone it in time, then it would be possible to enter our players in international competitions.

But his focus is on the Northern Division at the moment because the sport has died down there.

"We were in Savusavu a few weeks back and we found out there is a squash court in Labasa that has not been used for many years," he said.

"So I would like to go to the North and carry out development work and coaching clinics and also promote the court in Labasa so people can use it."

Cerelala said finance was their biggest obstacle and sponsorship would be a big boost to his plans.

"I hope the response from the Fiji National Sports Commission is positive and also other sponsors back our plans."
