FOLLOWING their National Championships, Squash Fiji has announced their extended training squad for next year's Pacific Games.

A total of 25 players have been named to prepare for the event which would be held in Papua New Guinea.

And leading the list of the names are badminton converts Andra Whiteside and Gabriella Wong who have switched racquets in a bid to represent the nation in PNG.

There is also representation from the three major centres in the country where the sport is played such as Lautoka, Savusavu and Suva.

Squash Fiji official Ravi Singh said the onus was now on the players to meet the demands of the training and preparation if they wanted to be part of the final squad to the Pacific Games.

"This team will now have to meet the selection criteria and the team will gradually be trimmed down to five women and five men for the games next year," he said.

Training squad:

Suva: Sailesh Pala, Andra Whiteside, Gabriella Wong, Carline Bently, Danielle Whiteside, Filimoni Lesuma, Jioji Simpson, Andre Roxburgh, Alison Yee, Dudley Simpson, Asinate McGoon, Seini Tinaikoro, Leena Mario, Linda Barton, Suli Ali, Joseph Gibson
