Tournaments and Club Activities

The annual Wanderers / Chamber Challenge took place on Saturday the 12th of October.  We had a great turnout with 16 players from Wanderers and 17 players from Chamber Exiles club taking part.  The Wanderers team also included four players from the Thusong Squash Development group who won four of their nine matches.


The overall result was a resounding victory for Wanderers resulting in Chamber Exiles Chairman, John Shannon, meekly handing the cup back to Wanderers Chairman, Chris Hughes.
