‘Downunder’ PSA Tour begins…
Posted on July 7, 2013
Here is a brief itinerary of the next few weeks:
July 5-8 SYDNEY: Training in and around Sydney with his coach Mark Andrew Burke (originally from Sydney). On the 7th July Jan played an exhibition match with former World#35 Aaron Frankcomb, during the NSW State Squash Championships at Thornleigh Squash Centre, Sydney. It was a bit of a wake-up call for Jan, which has come to realise that squash in Sydney during winter means a dead court and short rallies. Jan will need this experience to equip himself well for the next 2 weeks in Melbourne and Hobart.
Special thanks to Rob Leisner from Northmead Squash & Fitness, who helped a lot during our stay in Sydney. Rob is one of Sydney’s high profile squash coaches and is passionate about the game. Burkesquash wishes Rob well with his club in the future, Thanks mate! Also a special thanks to Aaron Frankcomb from Willoughby Squash Club. Mark visited Aaron at his club to see his squash program in action and Aaron made himself available for the exhibition with Jan. Thanks Aaron!
July 8-15 MELBOURNE: Arriving on the 8th, settling in for a couple of days training at MSAC, Melbourne, before the main draw starts for the Victoria Open PSA Challenger 10. Jan is in the main draw and plays his 1st match on the 10th July. The draw for this tournament can be seen HERE.
July 15-22 HOBART: The 2nd PSA tournament in Australia is the Tasmania Open PSA Challenger 5. This takes place in chilly Hobart, Tasmania. Jan is in the main draw again and plays his 1st match on the 19th July. The draw for this tournament can be seen HERE.
