THE highlight of the Namibian squash calendar this year, the Coach Sean Invitational, takes place at the Wanderers Squash Club from 28 to 30 November when Namibia's top eight male players will battle it out for top honours and prize money to the value of N$24 500.
The tournament was made possible with sponsorships from Wanderers Squash Club, Sanlam Namibia, Paco Engineering, Quickbooks Accounting Namibia, Plant'd and Xterra 4x4 Outdoor & Fitment Centre.
In the run-up to the event The Namibian will place profiles of the eight finalists who have qualified for the tournament and today we take a look at Angelo Titus.
The 35-year-old Titus grew up in the coastal town of Walvis Bay where he started playing squash at the age of 13. Two years later he made the Namibian junior team for the first time that competed at a provincial junior tournament in Cape Town.
He also represented Namibia at a junior event in Bloemfontein in 2002 and two years later, at the age of 20, was selected for Namibia's senior squad for the first time.
Since then he has represented Namibia on various occasions at South African Country Districts tournaments, while the highlight of his career came in 2011 when he represented Namibia at the World Men's Squash Championships in Germany.
Titus has been the Buccaneers squash champion on seven occasions, and this year came fifth at the BDO Open and sixth at the Wanderers Open and WB Hardware Open.
He is currently ranked 13th in Namibia.
