Annual Chamber Challenge
Saturday 9 October is World Squash Day and The Wanderers Squash Club has traditionally celebrated this with a challenge tournament against the Chamber Exiles squash club.
Chamber Exiles has won the tournament three times out of the eight tournaments held in the past so we’d like to maintain our lead as much as possible going forward. Some of the top players in both clubs are playing in the SA Nationals on Saturday the 9th of October but that shouldn’t detract from the competitive spirit of the competition and the social interaction afterwards. So, give your name to Phil Louw or myself and join in the fun on World Squash Day in promoting the game of SQUASH.
Let’s try and avoid the humiliation we had last year!
