The Highlanders Clubhouse has undergone a remarkable transformation, and it’s safe to say that the fans are thrilled! The atmosphere was low-key when the doors first opened, but as the night progressed, the excitement and energy levels in the room went through the roof!
One ecstatic fan exclaimed, “This place is now so clean and homely, I wonder why the club waited so long to do this.”
Another delighted patron, Catherine Mkhwananzi, said, “Honestly speaking, I was complaining about the stench in this place. I am happy with the renovations because this place is now up to standard. Well done to the executive as a whole.”
And Bekithemba Mlotshwa added, “We can now compete with any leisure spot in the city.”
The new look of the clubhouse is the perfect blend of modern and sophisticated, and it’s no wonder that fans and patrons alike are clamouring to spend their evenings here. The whiskey corner and disc jockey (DJ) box are just some of the exciting new features that will make this clubhouse the go-to spot for Highlanders followers and anyone looking for an upmarket leisure centre.
Of course, the timing couldn’t be better, as the Highlanders are set to play their first Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match against ZPC Kariba at Barbourfields Stadium in just a few days. The clubhouse has been given a facelift that is synonymous with the most upmarket pubs in the city and beyond, and it’s clear that the club’s partnership with businessman Phathisani Nkomo has paid off in spades.
Designers have done an exquisite job, and the French door facing the parking lot has been replaced with an aluminium frame, while a platform has been constructed just outside the side facing the fields. And that’s not all! The club has promised that more additions will be made to the outlook of the club-house, so fans and patrons can expect even more exciting changes in the future.
In short, the Highlanders Sports Club has gone from a dilapidated eyesore to a trendy and sophisticated leisure centre that is sure to attract crowds from all over the city. So, if you’re looking for a night out, look no further than the Highlanders Sports Club — they came, they saw it, and they loved it. –@innocentskizoe
