Supatronix Doubles Squash League

27 October 2021 | Sports


This year saw Buccaneers Club introduce a new event.

The Supatronix Doubles league, commenced on 13 October. With the short space of time left to the end of the year and not much time to advertise the event it was worried that the entry would not be good. Our assumptions were however completely proved wrong. The league is made up of 4 sections – The Men’s A, Men’s B, Ladies [with only 4 entries will be playing each other twice] and Mixed. The competition will run through till Saturday 20th November. There’s no two ways about it Doubles, being competitive and also fun, is definitely enjoyed by many of the members.
