Social doubles league champions crowned
19 November 2018 | Sports
Some of the scores were really close with everything to play for in the final round.
Chantel and Chelsea de Gouveia's youth, fitness and great style of play put them a notch above the other teams and they took the trophy for the Ladies Section with reasonable ease.
Diana Meyer and Lindsay Lottering were the runners-up and Christina Beukes and Paula Louw took third slot.
In the Men's A section, favourites, Trevor and Brandon Grane, managed to amass a good amount of points throughout the league, which carried them through and gave them the edge they needed in the end to lift the Trophy for 2018.
The runners-up were Leslie Bosman and Cecil Humphries and coming in third was the sponsors Namib Diesel's, Jaco de Witt and Angelo Titus.
Shawn Mouton and Gunther van Wyk who are rarely seen at the club, but come out of the woodwork during doubles competitions and seem to gel well together, won the Men's B section.
The runners-up were Patrick Quinn and Willie van Duijvenbode with Joe Hermann and Lino Koopman finishing in third place.
In the mixed doubles section Zeenad Martins and Lino Koopman just managed to take the title on points. They fended off late entrants and runners-up Carla Cummings and Christopher Hill. Christina and Ettienne Beukes secured the third place.
It was a large entry, which had a superb atmosphere and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. It definitely has to be ranked as one of the top events of the year.
Jaco de Witt representing the sponsor Namib Diesel was greatly impressed by the turnout and sportsmanship shown throughout the event. He confirmed that next year will once again be sponsored by them.
Buccaneers Squash Club thanked Namib Diesel for their ongoing support of squash and sponsorship of this popular annual event.
