Toole time at Forbes Squash Open

Rohan Toole has claimed the 2020 Forbes Squash Open in an exceptional competition on March 14 and March 15.

Forbes and Parkes squash courts hosted 160 matches between 87 competitors across the two days - and Forbes squash club president Darryn Piper said it was excellent.

Toole defeated the Forbes club president in the semi-final to set up a finals battle with Simon Carruthers, himself a former world number 60.

While the scorecard shows a straight-sets victory to the young champion, the game was marked by extended rallies and gave the spectators a great show.

"All the grandstands were full and people were on the carpet trying to fit in," Piper said.

The battle of the Burke brothers continued for the State title: Toby wrested it from 2019 winner Jack this year.

With competitors from all over the State, locals did feature in the weekend's winner's list.

Young Parkes talent Henry Kross took out the C Grade section after a finals tussle with Richard Plowes.

Parkes' Zoe Hood claimed the Open women's title in the finals against Belinda Thurtell.

Forbes' own Alex Bayley won the ladies A Grade with Michelle Bentick runner up, and Debbie Bryant placed in the B Grade competition.
