Oban Tennis and Squash Club convener Jackie Kersley said:  ‘Scottish Sea Farms sponsorship of £2,000 will help bring elite squash players from all parts of the country  to compete, putting Oban firmly on the professional squash circuit map.’

A Scottish Sea Farms spokesperson added: ‘Scottish Sea Farms are delighted to support the Oban Open – what an exciting time for the Oban Tennis and Squash Club and for the town.

‘It’s great to attract top squash talent so that youngsters and adults alike can be inspired.’

The event will be held at Atlantis Leisure on March 27-29.
