Supatronix Doubles Opens

Buccaneers hosted the 2019 Supatronix Doubles Open which with-out a doubt is one the most well-liked open events in the country.

Forty-four entries came from Windhoek, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, which made up the Men’s A & B, Mixed and Ladies sections. It was a grueling two days of squash, particularly in the Men’s A section team. The teams very closely matched and was game on right from the start.
After an absence of a year, siblings Emil and Norbet Dorgeloh teamed up again to try and reclaim the title they took in 2017. They came up against Clifford de Witt and Kyle Kriel in the final. Cliffy and Kyle seemed to concentrate their play more on Emil than Norbet and peppered him with an impressive array of shots, but he rose to the occasion and with support from his brother, broke them to take the match 3-1.
They played with such determination and emotion that lifting the Trophy and title of the 2019 Supatronix Doubles Open could not have been a better comeback for them.
In the Ladies final Chantel and Chelsea de Gouveia retained the title and trophy with a good win over Charne Fourie and Tessa Rossouw.
Leslie Bosman and Gerhard Lottering with racquets blazing beat Wynand Labuschagne and Arno Kok to take the Men’s Plate.
Sharde Fisher and Shawn Mouton took the B section by beating Patrick Quinn and Willem van Duijvenbode quite comfortably.
A bruising encounter between Norbet Dorgeloh and Chantel de Gouveia marked a great win against Max Endjala and Adri Lambert to reclaim their title form 2017. Memories of this encounter will linger with Adri for quite a few weeks to come.
Mr Jose de Brito of Supatronix was more than impressed with the turnout and standard of play and expressed his pleasure by announcing that he looked forward to sponsoring the event again next year.
Squash was a thing of the past for a few hours as the event was wrapped up with a magic braai and refreshments to replace body fluids. Till next year.
Special thanks to Supatronix for their continued support and sponsorship for this very popular annual event.
