The Whanganui Squash Club buzzed with excitement as it played host to the annual Central Open Squash Tournament. This year’s event was nothing short of extraordinary, drawing 112 participants from almost every district in the North Island.

The Central vs Eastern one day challenge was held on Saturday 25th May at Waipukurau Squash club. Unfortunately the normal 6 players per team was not possible due to Eastern having players pull out due to injury and illness. However, squads of 4 Ladies and 4 Men battled it out for the Newbigin Shield. After a couple of 5 setters the first round score was tied at 4 games each.
