Over half term, the St Mary’s 1st team participated in the 12th annual Stayers Squash Festival hosted by Wynberg Boys’ High School.

Eighteen squash teams from around the country attended the festival. This provided a great opportunity to play high-quality opposition while in the fantastic setting of the mother city, Cape Town.

The busy weekend was filled with five fixtures over three days, with some sightseeing in-between. St Mary’s was met with stiff opposition, including girls’ teams from Epworth, Herschel and a strong invitational team, Suikerbossie, and two boys’ teams from SACS and Michaelhouse.

Much experience was gained throughout the weekend, especially for the younger members of the team, which will prove to be invaluable in the squash season to come.
