The joint was jumpin’ Sunday on Day Four at the J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions. Dunlop Kids’ Day at the ToC had something for everyone. The goodie giveaways included Dunlop Hats, ToC Squash Stars Constellation Poster and ToC Player cards. Kids got creative at the Leman Manhattan Preparatory School booth where they could decorate canvas bags and also enter raffles for a free “Pool Party” and two weeks at Leman Summer Camp.

All of our top players took part by signing autographs on posters, playing cards, hats, bags, shirts and even someone’s arm!

Six lucky kids had their names picked out of the hat for their chance for squash glory on the ToC glass court when each got to play a mini-game against one of the pros including Nick Matthew, Gregory Gaultier, Jenny Duncalf, Nouran Gohar and Laura Massaro.

And, of course, we had great squash matches – the highlight of the day was Amanda Sobhy’s historic win over defending champion Raneem El Welily.
