Gibraltar Squash hosts European Team Championships - Division 3
Gibraltar Squash today hosts the biggest squash tournament ever held on the Rock as countries from across Europe participate in The European Team Championships - Division 3 2023.
Matches started earlier today Wednesday the 12th with both the menâ€™s and women in action
The European Team Championships Division 3 are being held at the Europa Sports Park Squash Facility giving local fans a chance to watch some top level squash.
The Gibraltar Womenâ€™s squad is in Group A where they will face Sweden, Croatia, Italy and Malta with Group B made up of Slovenia, Greece, Luxembourg and Romania. The Menâ€™s Squad will face the direct challenge of Italy and Jersey also in Group A. Groups B, C and D will see Slovakia, Greece, Luxembourg, Isle of Man, Norway, Malta, Guernsey, Latvia, Croatia, Romania, Liechtenstein and Slovenia respectively.
Delighted at the prospect of visitors from so many different countries to Gibraltar, the Minister for Sport, Steven Linares, has congratulated the GSA for organising the event and wished the team well: â€śWhen considering whether to embark on the largest investment ever in Gibraltarâ€™s sporting infrastructure the aim at the time was to attract top level competitions and, by default, visitors to the Rock under the Event Led Tourism banner. It is fantastic to see that those original concepts are becoming a more frequent reality. This is in addition to the benefits that local sportspeople will derive from such events from a purely sporting context. My thanks to the GSA for their efforts and my best wishes for the squads!â€ť
