Individual Doubles Squash Tournament Comes To Town

Gansbaai is blessed to have so many outdoor sporting options as well as a little-known, well-maintained squash court at the golf club. There are a number of regular, mostly single players, who use the courts regularly, many of which at a very high standard.

We had 16 players from Cape Town, George, Bredasdorp and Gansbaai all playing in good and competitive spirit. The competition design allows players to carry their doubles points from round to round as individuals, which separates the players into 4 groups to determine an individual winner in each group.
