Are we in for a third wave and a stricter lockdown?

wanderers club Squash News, May 2021 15

We don’t know at this stage. However, that doesn’t mean that we can’t take action now and prepare ourselves for any eventuality.

Joburg Masters have taken the initiative and postponed their next three matches, resuming play on the 24th of June (subject, of course, to developments).

At the time of writing, Joburg League will take a gap and resume on the 1st and 2nd of June.

If we want to continue playing socially over this period it is important to STRICTLY follow the protocols set down for play. (Note that this could change at short notice if the lockdown restrictions are increased).
