He has a first round bye be­fore tak­ing on De­clan Cash­man, of WA.

The fi­nals are sched­uled for Tues­day and Jacob is pos­i­tive of his chances. He has had a good prepa­ra­tion in the weeks prior so he will be look­ing to pro­duce his best in the largest field of play­ers in the tour­na­ment for all age groups with to­tal en­tries ex­ceed­ing 200 play­ers from across Aus­tralia.

From Thurs­day, Jacob will spear­head the Squash NSW Blue­tongues U17 team in the Na­tional State Team Cham­pi­onship con­tested over four age groups from U13s to U19s.
