Corporate Challenge under way
The first round of the Citigold Wealth Management Corporate Squash Challenge has concluded with Citi ‘A’ playing a starring role as they upset 5/8 seeds FCA to reach the last 16.
Elsewhere in the draw, ex-World No.5 Peter Barker couldn’t help his Tradition side get past Investec, who are now in the Plate as favourites to take the title. Apart from the Citi upset, the seeded teams eased into round two where the top four seeds – Aviva Investors, Ernst Young, BT and PricewaterhouseCoopers – joined the fray.
Having re-joined the event after an absence of over a decade, 3/4 seeds BT edged past Savilles into the quarter-finals. Meanwhile, PwC got the better of Credit Suisse and Deloitte putting an end to Citi ‘A’s title aspirations. However, Citi ‘A’ has now dropped into the Cup competition and will hope for a good run to take up a berth on the all glass court at the Citigold Wealth Management Canary Wharf Squash Classic in March.
“The Citi ‘A’ team has played impressively this year taking part in the Citigold Wealth Management Corporate Squash Challenge and we are proud to continue supporting the team in the Cup Competition at the Citigold Wealth Management Canary Wharf Squash Classic in March.” – Prashanth Natarajan, Senior Relationship Manager at Citigold Wealth Management.
