It’s a wrap here in Calgary! The final of the 2020 Linear Logistics Bankers Hall Club Pro Am was a dominant win by #2 seed Dimitri Steinmann of Switzerland as he took down #8 seed Emyr Evans of Wales in straight games 11-9, 11-6, 12-10 in 47 minutes.

This was the first time we have had a Swiss winner in this the 19th version of the tournament here in downtown Calgary.

Steinmann was just a bit too consistent overall on the points that really mattered.

Evans had his chances especially in a close third game and had game points on a few occasions but could not push it into a fourth game. He had performed brilliantly this week, taking out top seed Leonel Cardenas in the quarter-finals and No.3 seed Rui Soares in the semis.

Again a packed crowd here were treated to great squash by these two youngsters…..aged 22 and 23 only!

One of the strongest overall fields we have had here for many years as all matches from round one through to the final were well contested no matter what the score line was.

So, onto the 20th version of this event in 2021……we are looking forward to that already!
