Both Rowan Damming and Fleur Maas did a great job and claimed their title in Boys U15 and Girls U17. This year’s DPD Dutch Junior Open ended with an all English clash between Max Forster and Sam Todd. With long rallies, beautiful strokes and intense points, they played an fantastic match. After five thrilling games Sam Todd took the match and the title.

The organization likes to thank all players, coaches, parents and supporters. Special thanks to the sponsors DPD Pakketservice, Dunlop, Cheaptickets and Frans Otten Stadion.

Tournament Director Tom Lucas said: “I want to thank everyone for making it such an amazing event. Without everyone’s effort, this wouldn’t have been half as great as this year’s edition. Special thanks to Cheaptickets who have supported the Dutch youth for the last years. Today their effort resulted in two beautiful titles in Boys U15 and Girls U19. And I hope to see you all next year!”

Day TWO:

The second day of the DPD Dutch Junior Open has ended with a close match 3-2 between James Flynn and Sam Todd. It has been an exciting day with most of the quarter finals. With 409 matches on the second day the tournament is already half way trough. In the BU19, Ivan Perez and Lewis Anderson didn’t manage to reach the semis.

Tomorrow promises to be another great day full of exciting quarter- and semifinals. Thanks for everyone for the second day, have a good night and we’ll see you tomorrow on the third day of the tournament.

Day TWO Replays


Day One has finished, so it’s time to look back on the first day of the DPD Dutch Junior Open 2019. With 528 participants With a number of 528 young and talented players the schedule was tight and a lot of great matches have been played on the twenty-one courts of the Frans Otten stadium. Although a few matches were really close, not many great upsets happened on day one.

Tom Lucas, tournament director, looks back on a good day: “It was a good start of the tournament, glad to see coaches and players coming to Dutch Junior Open for many years already. And I’m also happy to meet all the new faces. The first day is completed and looking forward for the next three days to come.

“One thing I would like to say a note to coaches and players. We encourage fair play, good sportsmanship and good behaviour. Unfortunately we have seen that players will not come to referee after their match. This is unfair for your opponent but also unrespectful for your fellow squash players. You don’t want your game to be without a referee so please don’t do this to others.”
