Ndhlovu and Ferreira take NSA Satellite 1 honours

Kelvin Ndhlovu continued his dominance of the tournament to beat Ray Simbule 11-2, 11-2, 11-1 in the final. Although Simbule was competitive in many of the rallies it was always Ndhlovu who won points with impressive retrievals and excellent placement to put his opponent under pressure. In the end the score line does Simbule a disservice but there is no argument who the better player was on the day.

In the ladies final Christine Ferreira overcame the loss of the first game to win 3-1 against 16 year old Helena Coetzee. Coetzee, slightly hampered by a leg injury sustained earlier in the tournament succumbed to the more experienced Ferreira who played clever drop shots and good volleys to take the game away from her opponent.

The B section was won by u16 player Joha van der Merwe who beat Quentin Saunders 3-1 in the final. Both were surprise finalists after being seeded 6th and 12th respectively.
