Stanmore/Hujjat/SJ are well-known for our excellent hospitality and last year was no different as all our departments joined hands and together with our families and members supporting the event in numbers made it a success. We are confident that this will be emulated and enhanced this year.
Furthermore, we will be hosting guests outside our community, welcoming them with the message of peaceunity, respect harmony.

Finally, we would like to put on record our appreciation to our ‘Salaamteers’ a dedicated group of volunteers who have given up their time to strive and make this event a success and run smoothly throughout the day. From Car Park Attendees to Catering, Marshalls to First Aiders, we are proud to have our Salaamteers, who will form part of the backbone for this tournament.  We are sure their enthusiasm and spirit will shine in a fun filled and successful tournament.
