Nadav Wilensky, 27, who trains and coaches at the Ra'anana Municipal Squash Centre, is the new national squash champion, winning the title at the national championships last week at the Herzliya Squash Centre. As a youngster, Wilensky won several national junior titles and represented the country in junior competitions overseas. After army service, he took a four-year break from the sport before returning to the courts two years ago. Since his return, he has played on the national team at the 2005 and 2006 European championships and he won the bronze medal at the 2005 Maccabiah Games. Wilensky defeated Israel's 17-year-old junior champion, Ido Avron from Herzliya, in the semifinals, and beat Nir Arkin, 21 and also from Herzliya, after Arkin had to withdraw in the middle of the first game due to an injury. Avron claimed third place after defeating Nadav Tannen, a national service soldier from Ra'anana, in a close and riveting five-set match. Gal Levran from Ra'anana, the perennial champion in the 35+ age category, again won the group for his 11th successive victory. Other champions were Tzemach Meir from Wingate, who won both the 45+ and 50+ categories, and Boaz Eitan from Ra'anana, who topped the 55+ category. Three juniors who participated for the first time in the national championships performed well. Nir Zisman, 16, came in sixth, Ariel Lewis, 17, finished ninth and Guy Rotraf, 14, was 10th.
