Last year’s tournament was so much fun! We’re so excited to share the details of a fine-tuned package and tournament set for January 2018!

“What a great vacation! Please sign us up for next year’s trip!! This trip was everything we hoped it would be and MORE! We made many new friends and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves each day on the squash and tennis courts, beaches and off resort excursions. Everything was well organized and we had a BLAST!!”

Brian M.

“The tournament was an all-around AMAZING experience. Everything from the squash, to the socializing, relationship building, to exploring Mexico. I truly could not have asked for a better experience. Loads of fun. The group of people that went made the experience as well. Highly recommend the tournament!”

Amy C.

“For us, these tournaments have now become part of our regular travel plans so thank-you so much for putting on such a memorable event! I can’t wait until the next destination squash tournament. Thank-you for an incredible week of squash with an amazing group of people!”

“Best tournament ever!!! Definitely, highly recommended. A great tournament draw, amazing prizes, excellent location (Las Brisas, Huatuco), very organized squash and non-squash activities, fantastic opening reception, even joined in on water basketball & did the dancing worm!!!! Cannot wait until the next one!!!!”

“This trip was one to remember for me. Not only did it involve a lot of squash keeping me active and doing what I love almost each and every day it hit every other box of enjoyment for me as well. It was very well organized.  I will never forget the people and am looking forward to being part of many more future adventures!!!”

Jan P.

“The trip was the perfect mix of squash, social activities, relaxing, and exploring in a tropical location amongst a great group of friends. I would highly recommend it to any recreational squash player looking for a great holiday experience while not feeling guilty for all the overindulgences.”

Sachin B.

“We were welcomed us with open arms and Mezcal shots. The Resort was amazing, the beaches were sandy, and the people were friendly as could be. The squash was enjoyable, there were plenty of activities to do, and the guacamole was fantastic! I would recommend this resort to anyone and the company was superb.”

Who’s Running This Show?

Kevin Doucet
Squash Professional
Level IV NCCP

Hi! I’m so excited that my new adventure combines my love of hosting tournament events with exciting destinations!

I have hosted hundreds of events over the years and have taken on all different roles. Any good tournament director must wear a multitude of different hats and understand the full process of hosting a great tournament. My experience varies from National Championships in squash, and putting up temporary glass courts in downtown Toronto with camera site lines to a one day 30 person junior events.

Born and raised in Lloydminster Saskatchewan,  I started my education at Red Deer College where I started a number of lifelong friendships. After finishing my Bachelor of Commerce degree at the University of Alberta, I lived abroad including a year in Australia.  Once back, I moved to Calgary where I started my career in racquet sports. My 10 years as vice president of Squash Canada showed me the behind the politics of sport and what it takes to get the job done. Subsequently, I became an employee of Squash Canada which taught me that training coaches properly is the most important job of any sport organization.

Currently, I have a great career in coaching and feel so lucky to be running my own business in an atmosphere in which I love. Thanks to squash, I’ve developed so many great friendships over the years and I really appreciate and value that I’m one of the few independent squash professionals in Canada and able to develop my own programs tailored to my clients.

As a team, we are the perfect hosts thanks to our technical knowledge and event management backgrounds combined with the practical experience on how to get the job done. Our best advertisement is our clients who are now our friends.

How to Order?
