Long rallies and sneaky drop shots were many as the players put on a show for enthusiasts, as well as others close to the sport.
Fernandes, who says that she is really looking forward to 2013, was high in praise for the Federation for organising such an exhibition.
Andrew Arjoon just repeated as Caribbean Champion and he hoped to use the match as valuable experience.

Head Coach of the Guyana Squash federation, Carl Ince, said the year 2012 has been an amazing one for squash
Ince credits the success to the increase in playing facilities and coaches.

Another football organization is asking for football officials to be more professional. The Alpha FC took its grouse to the media after their match scheduled for this evening at the GFC ground has reportedly been shifted by one day and to the Buxton ground. The club wished to make it clear that it was not consulted as protocol allows for on the different arrangements and in those circumstances they will be reverting to the agreed fixtures
Coach of Alpha, Wayne ‘wiggy’ Dover said, he was subjected to what amounted to threats if Alpha did not toe the line.
Co-Founder of the Kashif and Shanghai Organization, Kashif Mohammed, had his own take on the issue.
