The squash ‘test’ between Namibia and Zambia, which begins Wednesday 17th September, will be the first time since 1996 that Namibia has had a recognised full international in this sport. It will be a great opportunity to see just how far the game has developed both on and off the court as juniors, men’s B, ladies A and men’s A take on their Zambian counterparts in games at Wanderers and Klein Windhoek.
Newly promoted Blue Waters got off to a flying start as they shot to the top of the MTC Premiership log with a shock 4-0 victory away to Oshakati City on Saturday. Fielding a young and inexperienced team, Blue Waters attacked from the start and took a 2-0 halftime lead through goals by teenage midfielders Harold Gariseb and Tommy Mvula.
They continued to pile on the pressure in the second half as rightwinger David Joseph scored a brace to complete their emphatic victory.
