Jamaican and Caribbean Squash Champion, Chris Binnie is continuing his climb up the Professional Squash Association’s (PSA) rankings, jumping up to number 82 in the June listings.

Binnie moved up seven places in the rankings following a run of solid performances in recent tournaments.

The six-time national champion said he is now playing bigger events, facing higher-ranked opponents and achieving creditable results.

Earlier this month, he made it to the quarter finals of the Paraguay Open where he lost 11-7, 11-7, 11-5 to Eric Galvez of Mexico.

In May he beat former world number 13, Olli Tuominen12-10, 11-8, 7-11, 8-11, 11-6 at the Internacional Sporta Open in Guatemala where he eventually lost 11-3, 11-7, 11-6, 11-7 to world number 17, Mazen Hesham.

“I’ve been playing bigger events so now I’m testing my skills against guys who are playing at the highest level and I’m able to keep pace with them so I think I’m moving in the right direction,” Binnie said.

Binnie also expressed appreciation to his sponsors whose financial support has assisted with his training, travel and accommodation expenses.  Within the last year he has inked deals with JN Fund Managers, Stone Leigh Coffee Roasters Company and WATA.

“The support from my sponsors has made a tremendous difference and now that I’m able to go to more tournaments and get more experience against top players I’ve been stepping up my game and the results speak for themselves,” Binnie said.

In August Binnie will be seeking his seventh regional title at the Caribbean Area Squash Association’s (CASA) Senior Championships, which will be held in Trinidad.

Rivals from across the region will be looking to create an upset by breaking his five-year winning streak. Then, his coveted local title will be on the line in November when the All Jamaica Championships are held in Kingston.

“Both of those titles are very special to me and I’ll be going all out to keep them,” he said.
