Nations Cup

New Zealand will be the testing ground for a major initiative for squash with the launch of the SquashFORWARD Series, a sequence of new squash events intended to trial innovative changes to the way the sport is delivered. The Nations Cup will comprise eight teams of two players – one male and one female – from the same country to add a new dimension to the typical competition structure in squash, and will include an alternative scoring format.

New Zealand Squash Open

The biggest squash tournament on the NZ squash calendar is back! The Robertson Lodges New Zealand Men’s Open and the Barfoot & Thompson NZ Women’s Open will be PSA World Tour events with NZ’s own Paul Coll and Joelle King set to be the star attractions amongst a top-class field that will line up at the Trustpower Arena in Tauranga on the all glass court. Players will battle for the lion’s share of a US$150,000 prize fund.
