2016 Super Champ District Eliminations – 9th – 10th July

July 1st, 2016 by Aynsley

2016 posterEntries are light for the 2016 Super Champ Eliminations and without the support of Central Otago  and the Otago University Clubs, there wouldn’t be an event at Otago District level.  This is disappointing especially as these events are usually the highlight of any squash players career. The Otago University Men’s ‘B’; Alexandra Women’s ‘C’ and Wanaka Men’s ‘D’ Teams will all automatically progress through to the National Competition if they choose to do so.  There will be a 3 way play-off between Wanaka, Cromwell and Otago University hosted by the Cromwell Club in Men’s ‘C’ Grade.  The Otago University will host the ‘E’ Grade where Otago University will play Alexandra in the women’s event and Otago University will host Cromwell in the Men’s.  There were no entries in Women’s ‘B’; Women’s ‘D’ and both Men’s and Women’s ‘F’ Grade.   A big thank you to those clubs that supported this very important event.

Otago District Champions

May 31st, 2016 by Aynsley

2016 Otago Open Champions Sophie O'Connell & Tamati Brooks both from Otago University Club

The 2016 Otago District Squash Championship final was an all Otago University affair with Sophie O’Connell defending her 2015 title by winning  in four games over Laura Rogers and Tamati Brooks (Otago University President) winning in three over  team mate Matt Ditchburn.  Both Laura and Matt played above themselves to get to the final but the experience and shot play of Sophie and Tamati was too strong on the day.

Ninety-four players competed over the weekend at the Otago Squash Club  with 12 year old junior Martha Toghill (seeded eighth) from Wanaka having a  particularly good tournament winning the Women’s ‘A’ Grade.

2016 Otago District Master’s Champions

May 9th, 2016 by Aynsley

Shaun & Ange 2016 2

The 2016 Otago District Master’s Tournament was hosted by the Taieri Squash Club over the weekend with the 2016 champions decided – Shaun Madden (Cromwell) and Ange Button (Otago).  Defending women’s champion Deb Shirley from Invercargill had to pull out due to injury leaving top seed Ange Button  to battle it out and take the title in four  from club mate, third seed Lyndal Askin.  Shaun Madden won in straight sets over Taieri and 2015 champion Mark Fairweather.

The theme for the tournament was ‘Nursery versus Nursing Home’ so when  a few residents from a local rest home popped in for a look and a bit of socialising, it made for some very interesting and competitive banter……….
