The Revelstoke Racquet Den’s 2012 Bear’s Den Classic Squash Tournament last weekend showed the growing power of local squash players.

“We had many Revelstokians in the tournament, as well as players from around the province,” said novice player Nikki Ball in an e-mail to The Current. (On an aside: I had planned to drop by the tourney last Saturday but was ill most of the weekend.) “It was very successful. Kevin Dorius did a great job organizing it and our sponsors were awesome, too.”
