Stratford turned on the hospitality and warm courts for some hot doubles action over the weekend 19 - 21st April. Centrals Abbie Holes of New Plymouth proved she is the most successful women's doubles player in Central history taking the women's title for the 7th year running.

Champion of Champions got a revamp from Squash NZ this year with an earlier date and no Club Champs required for selection.  The new event, rebranded Graded Champs had 10 Central clubs take part with around 70 odd entries heading to Inglewood to check out the new deck, and find out who was best in their grade and if any club could claim the title off of last years winners, Ohakune.
