Squash

Squash is a popular sport at Westville Boys’ High.

Since the early 1980’s the school teams have been competitive at all levels.  The school players, numbering as many as 60 boys, base themselves on the 8 top quality courts at the home of KZN Squash at the local Westville Country Club.

Teams at U14, U16 and U19 level compete in the Durban mid-week leagues and also travel to play the top schools in the province over weekends. Tours are undertaken to the annual festivals at Wynberg Boys’ High School and St Andrew’s School.  During the July holiday, many Westville players represent the KZN Schools teams that take part in inter-provincial tournaments around the country.  In recent years the depth of the Westville talent has resulted in having the most provincial representatives of all schools in KZN.  Young squash players have a sound base on which to build and enjoy their game at Westville Boys’ High School.

Lance Sibbald was the first old boy to become a national player, representing Natal and the South African Knights touring team with distinction. The school’s first team players have won the provincial team championships on a number of occasions and in 1992 went all the way to win the SA Top School title. Players from this team, namely Fabrice Ruscoe and Grant Findlay, went on to achieve senior rankings at National level. In recent years Stephanos Garas was the SA U19 number 1 player in 2008.
