16 CJS Players invited to play in SA Schools Closed

16 CJS players have been invited to participate in the SA Schools Closed tournament!   It will be held from 14 to 16 April 2023 at St John’s College in Johannesburg.

The SA Schools Closed tournament is a national tournament, and only the best players from each province of the age groups u14, u16, and u19 are invited (provided they have played in the Technifire Bloemfontein Open Tournament which was held two weeks ago).

Being invited to play in the SA Schools Closed is a huge achievement for any junior squash player and something CJS coaches worked hard in preparing players for!  It gives the players the opportunity to achieve the Top 10 Ranking in South Africa (provided they have also been selected to play in the upcoming Interprovincial Tournaments scheduled for June 2023).
