THE KwaZulu-Natal squash teams performed very well at the interprovincial tournaments which were held during the June-July vacation. The majority of the girls came from midlands and the boys had good representation as well.

The U19 tournament was held in Cape Town where the boys’ A team came fourth with the B boys playing good squash to come second. The girls’ A team ended second in their section and the B girls did very well to win the girls’ B section.

Tarryn Harborth (Epworth) was ranked number one in South Africa and both Tayla Cordial (Epworth) and Nikki Melis (Epworth) received SA top 10 ranking. KwaZulu-Natal and Glenwood boys, Michael Hutchings and Jason Kershaw were both awarded top 10 rankings.

The U16 players travelled to Pretoria where the boys teams had mixed results finishing ninth and third, respectively.

The girls’ A team did very well to come second to the strong Eastern Province team and the B team finished fourth, playing with a depleted team due to injury.

Julie Lee (Epworth) maintained her top 10 ranking and school-mate, Cayleigh Conradie did well to beat two of the top 10 players at the tournament.

All the U14 girls had a good tournament with both A and B teams finishing in the top six of the A section, second and sixth, respectively. Nadia Ramchandra (Epworth) played really well to beat one of the top SA U14 players and was ranked number five.

The boys teams were fifth and third, respectively.
