The Gibraltar Squash Association is as of today hosting the European Team Championships Division 3 at the Europa Sports Park Squash Facility. 

The Gibraltar Women’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 Men’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, the Hon Steven Linares, has congratulated the GSA for organising the event and wished the team well: “When considering whether to embark on the largest investment ever in Gibraltar’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!”
