Squash open a smashing success

21 May 2012

UCT's squash courts boasted some of the top names in the local game as the seventh annual Keith Grainger Memorial UCT Squash Open delighted players and spectators alike over the first weekend of May. Rodney Durbach repeated his 2010 success when he overcame top seed and South Africa number two Adrian Hansen 3-0 in the men's final. SA number one Milnay Louw swept aside all contenders in the women's section, going unbeaten before beating UCT alumna Siyoli Waters in the final. Louw inherited the title from 2010 and 2011 winner Natalie Grainger – Keith's sister – who did not participate this year. The UCT Squash Open – the only university tournament of its kind in the Western Cape – was renamed in honour of the late Keith Grainger in 2002, one year after the third-year UCT student and dedicated club member succumbed to cancer.
