1. BarnesRachel Barnes was almost destined to be Bermuda’s best female squash player, but she is more than just the national champion. In what she says is “male-dominated sport”, Barnes is determined to close its gender gap.

She regained the MHB National Squash Championship last month at Bermuda Squash Racquets Association — where she “grew up”. The 2016 champion beat Laura Robinson 11-7, 3-11, 11-3, 11-5 in the women’s final this year after Susie Lacey won last year’s crown, but Barnes does just as much off the court for the women’s game.

“It’s really tough because traditionally squash is a really male dominated sport,” she said. “There are a lot more male pros and there are a lot more resources for men’s events, so I’ve recently got the club to commit to a more gender-equal situation where we have the same-size trophies, we have the same air time on show courts, we have the same coverage on social media.
