Twins Tipped as Finalists at Junior Open

All eyes will be on Rebecca and Jonny Barnett at the NZ Junior Open Squash Championships this weekend.

The Wellington twins made headlines around the world when they captured their respective titles at the championships last year, becoming the first twins to win national squash titles in the same year.
