The FNB Squash Schools Squash Festival (St Andrew’s School, in partnership with First National Bank), will be hosting and celebrating our 25th Invitation Squash tournament this weekend.

The main objective of this tournament is to provide an opportunity for the young Free State Squash players to play against other top squash players in the country. In doing so, they will obtain the necessary exposure and experience they require in order to compete successfully with the other provinces.

This is the 25th consecutive year that First National Bank is partnering with St Andrew’s to host this special event. A large number of the country’s top junior boys squash players will be in action. The event has been run by Margo Morgan and Calvin Deutschmann since its inception 25 years ago.

We will host 21 schools and a total of 22 teams from around the country and these include. Pretoria Boys High, Glenwood High School, Grey College, St Andrew’s College (Grahamstown), Queen’s College (Queenstown), St Stithian’s College,  Michael House, Grey High, St Alban’s College, Parktown Boys’ High, St Stithian’s College, St John’s College, St Dunstan’s College, Kearnsey College, Maritzburg College,Selborne College, St Dominic’s College, Westville Boys’ High and Menlopark High School

Since this tournament will be run on a festival basis, the pressure to win will be of secondary importance, while gaining experience and developing other important sporting values such as integrity, sportsmanship, team spirit , attitude and goodwill will take priority, in our endeavours to promote the game of squash both at St Andrew’s and in the Free State.

The tournament will be played at the following venues – St Andrew’s School, Eunice, Grey College, Ramblers, Municipals, Oudstudente, Bobbiespark, Old Greys, and St Michael’s School Squash Courts.
