Ben best on court

Local deaf squash champion Ben Bruggy (pictured) took out the Australian Deaf Squash Championship title in Adelaide late last month.

Rated second best deaf squash player in the country, Ben turned the tables on the number one player, Adelaides Peter Walters, in the final, thrashing him 9-0 9-1 9-4 to capture the title.

Bens brilliant exhibition with the small black ball has earned him a spot in the World Deaf Olympics in South Africa next year. However, the gun needs to raise $6000 to have another shot at the world title. Ben already possesses one world singles title and two teams world titles and hes keen to get back on top of the dais after finishing third at last years International Championship in Melbourne.

Anyone interested in helping get Ben back on the court in South Africa can phone Mark on 6621 7431.
