A strong entry from younger age-groups eager for tournament experience filled the draw for this event. Entries from all over the province were welcomed to Crusaders Squash Club to contest a tough schedule over the three days. With the outstanding year in junior competition for the province, the expectation was for close matches and upsets; the players did not disappoint. Many thanks to the Eastern Cape Jesters who have promoted this event which bridges the all-important gap between schools and international squash. Thanks to Stapes, Lisa O’Grady, Peter Ryder, Marcus Oshry, Darryl Smith and Terry Dowling who looked after the Development players, all who officiated and gave up their weekend for squash.
Well done to all, Grey wins 6 – 0
