Musina Squash Club

Tournament Against Louis Trichardt Squash Club

On the morning of 11th May, four members, Phelo, Simon, JW and Brian of the Musina Squash Club, travelled to Louis Trichardt for the inaugural tournament in what is hoped will be an ongoing set of matches between squash players from the two northernmost towns of South Africa. A Louis Trichardt company, Palm Motors, has donated a handsome trophy for the events.

The Louis Trichardt No.1 receives the trophy.

In squash, players are seeded, from No.1 (the best) to No. 4, (the least good). No. 1’s play No. 1’s etc., but this tourney extended it a bit for a few more matches, so the No. 1’s not only played their opposite number, but the seed higher or lower and so on for all of the players, so each got to play in two matches.

Musina didn’t do very well, but managed to win 1 of the matches, with Brian taking three of the five games against his opponent, and Simon also won one game. Now that we know what we’re up against, the players will be training hard and hopefully the club’s other players will be striving to get into the team.

Wearing their very smart team shirts, sponsored by Musina Motors, Crooks Corner and Musina SPAR, the players certainly weren’t disgraced. Thank you to the sponsors.

The next match-up should be a home event for the local team.

South African Elections 2019

An apt thought for today;

“In reality, there is no such thing as not voting: you either vote by voting, or you vote by staying home and tacitly doubling the value of some diehard’s vote.” – David Foster Wallace

Don’t bitch and complain tomorrow about the state of the economy and the state of the roads and the lack of electricity and the breakdown in service delivery and the cost of fuel. This is your chance to do something about it.

Saying, “Oh I didn’t bother to vote, because it has no effect anyway” is an indictment on you.
