2014 SA Masters IPT Squash (Durban) - 5-9 September

Message from the KZN Chairman and Tournament Convener

The entire KZN committee has been working for months and finally the time has arrived to invite all to the 2014 SA Masters IPT to be held in Durban.

The format has been changed as agreed by all provinces to shorten the tournament by one day, (but we will still play 5 matches in four days). This change should help significantly in reducing travelling time, leave required and the cost of accommodation and car hire.

We have secured the best possible venue being Berea Rovers Club. All our functions and headquarters will be based there for the duration of the tournament.

Squash will be played at various venues across the entire KZN Durban and close surrounding areas. All clubs look forward to assisting and hosting players from various Provinces.

Please may I ask that all provinces advise us of their potential/possible number of teams that will be entering the IPT, before the end of June 2014, as the final entries received by this date will determine the final entry fee per player.


For those players who have not arranged their accommodation as yet, a list of places to stay, contact details, prices etc. will be attached for your convenience in our following newsletter. We strongly recommend that those who have not finalized their bookings as yet should do so as soon as possible.


A deposit of R2000 per team entered is required and payable by 30 June 2014 to KZN Masters Squash. The team entry must be accompanied by payment. A team with invitational players will not be allowed entry without approval from SA Masters executive. NB. Please include your province name as reference when making payment.

The tournament levy of R1100 per player has been set at this stage based on an estimate of 600 players. However if player entry should increase the levy will decrease accordingly. Also, if fewer than 600 players enter the levy must increase, so please encourage your fellow provincial members to enter. The final entry fee will be confirmed after deadline for entries being 30 June 2014.

The women will play in sections according to strength and not based on age.
