Tournament Results

Ten CJS players traveled to Cape Town to participate in the 2023 Growthpoint SA Nationals Squash Championship that was held at the V&A Waterfront from 18 August 2023 to 22 August 2023.   This was the final round of this tournament for the juniors and included three age groups: u15, u17 and u19.
