Central Otago teams won through in the only Super Champ eliminations held last weekend at Cromwell and Otago University Clubs.
Men’s ‘C’ Grade was held in Cromwell with the host club taking the title by beating Wanaka 4 – 1 in the morning. Their afternoon tie against Otago University went right to the wire going into the final match at 2 games all with Scott Dickie clinching the tie for Cromwell by beating Oliver Waterworth by a 3 nil margin. Otago University won the tie against Wanaka by 4 matches to 1.
Men’s ‘E’ Grade was also won by Cromwell beating the hosts Otago University by 4 matches to 1 with the Women’s ‘E’ Grade going to Alexandra also beating the host club Otago University by 5 – 0.

Entries 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.
