Our men’s 1st team came 2nd in the Northerns league last year. Kelvin Ndhlovu won Northerns League Player of the Year 2019 and Amy Farrell represented Northerns at Jarvis in 2019
CBCTUT Squash Club has had a great start to the year so far! 2020 has seen an influx of new players all excited to play league and help grow the club.
We have just recently came back from the Rustenburg New Years Tournament which saw 2 teams compete in the A and B Section respectively. The next 4 weeks have been booked out for a Mini Club Champs which will help with a ranking system for the Northerns Squash League which starts in the 3rd week of February. We currently have about 50 men and 15 ladies playing club champs which is a huge improvement of only about 45 people in total playing club champs last year! To accommodate all these new members, we have introduced a new team in the 12th league and as well as a new ladies league. Our 5th league team has been promoted to 4th league which shows you that not only are we getting bigger but stronger as well!
With regards to maintenance, we have a contact that is willing to build new cupboards for behind the bar, we just need to supply the material for him and compensate him some basic food items. We also have been donated an industrial aircon and are in the process of figuring out how to install it and what procedures we need to go through. We would like to ask the main club if that can fix all the walls and cracks on the courts as this is becoming an issue. Our 1st league is reluctant to play on court 1 due to the unpredictability of the bounce. We are also in the process of looking at a retractable canopy rooftop for our deck to keep us cool on hot days and dry during wet days.
We hope with all these new improvements we can hopefully we can keep this momentum going forward and continue to grow the club!
