However, in 2005 a dark cloud loomed over the future of the club as the Parkview Golf Club had sold the land the club occupied, plus the surrounding land, to a property developer. Chris and Jean, though still passionate about the club, did want to sell the club, and in the absence of any other buyers despite a long term lease on the land, were forced to sell to the developer. The developer soon thereafter made known his intention to demolish the club and build residential houses on the land.
This would have been disastrous for squash in Gauteng but luckily was averted when Des Sacco, the Chairman of mining company Assore Ltd and an enthusiastic sportsman and member of the club, approached the developer and arranged the purchase of the club and the land on which it stands through Assore Ltd. Thanks to this amazing gesture the squash club was saved and its future safeguarded. Craig continued to stay on and remains as manager of the club to this day.
