Hosting national events can be a very rewarding experience for clubs. However, there are a number of requirements (around facilities, prize money, publicising results etc) placed on national event hosts. More detailed information is contained in the documents below.
At the 2013 Presidents' Meeting several changes to the allocation and format of national events were approved. From 2015 onwards, all national events will be rotated regularly around each district. This will give each district regular access to every national event, and evenly share the travel burden on all players. Please read the information sheet below for full details, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Squash New Zealand signs MOUs with each of the national event host clubs at the beginning of the season. These Memoranda of Understanding formalise the expectations for each party (Squash NZ and the host club), and detail what each must do. However, it is important to remember that Squash NZ is here to help, and if any guidance/help is needed, a club only has to ask.
