Squash tourney on the cards

HARARE - Scores of emerging stars will take to the court at Belgravia Sports Club next month to celebrate the Zimbabwe Squash Academy Trust’s (ZSAT) seventh anniversary.

The SEF Prospero Capital-bankrolled squash tournament set for November 25 and 26 will see junior players battling for honours across Under 23, U19, U16, U14, U11 and U9 age groups.

Founded by one of the country’s top squash coach Mashumba Mukumba the academy has proven to be a conveyer belt of repute, providing talent for the national team set up and grooming young players from both the low and high-density suburbs.

Children from different high density suburbs of Harare namely Kuwadzana, Dzivaresekwa, Mufakose, Budiriro, Glen view, Warren Park, Highfield, Chitungwiza, Mabvuku and Tafara have all found a home at the academy.

Mukumba believes the academy’s success would not be possible without the assistance of Belgravia Sports Club, stakeholders and parents who support players with resources.

As for next month’s event he is organising the tournament with the assistance of Talent Mushunje and Malvin Mubure and support from SEF Prospero capital (Pvt) Ltd.

“We have been getting support from in and outside the country since the opening of the academy,” Mashumba said.
