For the second consecutive year, Windhoek’s two elite squash clubs, Wanderers and Klein Windhoek Squash Clubs will be fighting it out for the honours of best local Squash Club next week, Wanderer's chairperson Steven Berry has announced.
Each player will play one match on Thursday, one game on Friday with two games being played on Saturday, followed by the award ceremony.
“Over the past two years, both clubs have grown enormously and had both done a lot to grow the game in the capital city,” said Berry
He added that the clubs have formed an excellent relationship and have worked together to improve local squash in all aspects, from Junior squash to ladies squash through to developing the standard of squash overall in Namibia, hence the massive growth of players over the last two years.
Now it has come down to crunch time, to see which club is the overall best in the Capital City.
Each club will select 32 players, and on Thursday the 26th of October, all 64 players will go head to head.
Berry said both clubs would be fighting it out for N$10 000 with the losing club taking N$2 500 home.
“So there is a lot to fight for, considering we as Wanderers Club are raising money to upgrade our facilities, as we strive to maintain our high standards and make sure we have world-class facilities,” he told The Villager Sport.
He added that Wanderer's has over the year built a perfect relationship with its sister club.
“We can assure that this tournament will be played in good spirits as all players have been looking forward to playing this event all year. But that does not mean we are going to take it lightly, as the N$10 000 prize money will go a long way to helping us upgrade our facilities,” said Berry.
