2024 SA SCHOOLS IPTs

The highlight every year for our players is being selected for their province and then participating in the IPTs hosted in various provinces for each age group.

This year was no exception and Northerns players represented their province with distinction. Northerns also hosted the u16 IPT in Pretoria and I am proud to say that the organisation was extremely professional and well-planned.

We thank the NJSA committee for the efforts to stage the tournament and in particular the efforts of Gerda, Reinhardt and Christo for the daily management and streaming of games. I would also like to thank the schools and clubs who made their courts and accommodation available:
Accommodation:
Die Hoërskool Menlopark
Courts:
Pretoria Country Club
Harlequins Squash Club
Pretoria High School Old Boys Club
CBC Squash Club

We also thank Reinhardt Falk, Gerda Dreyer, Christo de Wet and all the stewards and helpers who made our local IPT a great success.

The u11s are a festival and thus no official results but feedback was good and our future is secure from the young ones.
