The hugely anticipated and Internationally recognized annual SFB Squash Invitational will be starting this today (18th Feb). The tournament will held over three days with some excellent squash as well lots of fun on and off the court.

With 80 pairings, seven sections, 91 individual entrants and 147 matches to be completed in two and half days, the St Francis Bay Squash Club has confirmed they have a full complement of players and are in fact slightly over subscribed making this year’s event the biggest SFB Squash Invitational yet.

There are a number of excellent squash players attending this year such as Alex Fuller SA no 3 World no 71, Karen Schultz SA no 19, Michael Wood Mixed Doubles National SA Champion, Paul Atkinson Mixed Doubles National SA Champion and Craig Wapnik Former SA no 1, among many others!

Talented local photographer, Christopher Scott will be joining us at this year’s tournament so stop by the St Francis Bay squash club, watch some of the excellent squash and who knows your photo could adorn the social media pages and if we can persuade Christopher to part with some of his superb work, on the pages of St Francis Today.

The courts are looking great with new tins generously donated by Richard Arderne of Pam Golding Properties and the marquee is up and ready to start entertaining players and gusts alike. And as for entertainment  DJ Johnny Dyssell will be flying in on Thursday morning to provide us with a series of awesome sets for the entire weekend.
