Open and away we go

This year’s opening reception was planned to happen during a break in first round play – it didn’t quite go to plan as there were some lengthy matches on court seven, but nevertheless the ceremony was well attended and gave the eighth edition of the HKFC International a fitting launch.

After an introduction from Co-Promoter and Tournament OC Member Neil Roberts, and words Duncan Chiu, Chairman Hong Kong Squash and Secretary-General Asian Squash Federation, the event was declared open, cue photo opportunities with the organisers, players and special guests including HKFC Chirman Mike Wood, Australian legend Geoff Hunt and the first lady of HK squash Heather Deayton.

Oh, and some drinks and delicious food too … more photos in the Day One gallery
