Squash: Tuks juniors rock in Perth
Posted on 15 December 2009
Tuks' medal winners.
TuksSquash's juniors rocked at the recent Western Australian Junior Doubles Tournament.
The players adapted superbly to the 4 players on courts, including all the tactics they learnt through the week and running their Ozzie opponents into the ground.
The benefits of attending the Perth Doubles Camp were clear at the start of the matches and it stood the South Africans in good stead from the first match.
Exhausted from a tough day of squash, the players will be ending this tournament with good memories, new friendships and increased self confidence.
Playing in temperatures of 40 degrees at the Squash Factory Courts in Wangara, Perth the Tuks youngsters sweated and stretched their way into a number of finals.
