Franklin back to defend title

A total of 90 players will compete for four main titles when the Digicel Bermuda National Squash Championships begin this weekend.

Action will begin on Sunday in four categories, men's women's, men's veterans and women's veterans. Three of the four defending champions will be returning to defend their national titles, with Micah Franklin, who is ranked 169 in the world, back in Bermuda and looking to hold on to his men's title.

Runa Reta tops the women's draw as she goes in search of a third successive title while Murray Brewer will be back in the men's veterans, attempting to return as champion in a tough draw that includes his two brothers, Jan and Richard.

The only defending champion unable to compete this year is Liz Martin, the 2014 Ladies Veterans champion, who is sidelined through injury.

Franklin begins the defence of his title against Ben Bramlett in the first round on Sunday afternoon while Reta has a first round bye before taking on the winner of Jenifer Bielby and Jackie Pinchin on Monday evening.

Play starts on Sunday with competition every night leading up to the finals on Friday, March 20.
