Visions Consulting Squash Championships

Wanderers Squash Club hosted its final major event of the year this past weekend, and it turned out to be the biggest event with regards to entries in recent memory.

For the past 5 years, there has not been a tournament with more entries, but on this occasion there were 96 players that took part, once again showing how the sport has grown over the past couple of years.
With 26 ladies having entered, 12 juniors (under 12 years old) and 36 Masters (over 40), the tournament was a true testament as to the sport being for people from all walks of life.
“With Sponsors like Visions Consulting, Pionierspark Pharmacy and 3@1 this tournament was really one for the books. To have this many players take part, with nearly 600 matches being play-ed, it truly was a successful weekend, with top level squash played throughout. This weekend really excited us about the level of squash that we can expect in 2019, as the sport continues to grow in leaps in bounds.”
There were some exciting things that came out of this weekend, with the emergence of former South African Num-ber 1 under 11 girls, Dene v Zyl winning the C Division Final, after beating the experienced Jessica Moore.
There were also great results for youngsters like Fran-co Lambert, who won the plate of the B Division, as well as the young Hein Bam who was the runner-up in the B Division.
The young Arno Diekmann came 3rd in the A Division, and another surprise pack-age in the Masters division came through a very tough draw after beating the much more fancied Archie Botha, and then the defending champion, Gerdus Louwrens before pushing Michau Basson right down to the wire in the final before succumbing 3-1.
In the A Division Final, spectators were treated to a great running final between Sven Gruttemeyer and the tournament favourite Kyle Kriel. Kriel was the eventual winner after winning the final 3-0.
Wanderers Squash Club now heads in to the last weekend on its calendar, where the winner of the Visions Open Division will take on the winner of the Masters Division in an Exhibition match on Saturday (1 December) at 12:00, in a fund raiser, where Wanderers Squash Club will be raising funds in a Christmas Drive in order to donate clothes, bed-ding, stationary etc towards an Orphan-age of the clubs choice.
