At the 2013 Presidents' Meeting an annual national event rotation system was proposed and 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. The schedule, and more information on the roster, can be found here.
The host clubs for Squash New Zealand's National Events in 2015 have been finalised.

Hosting Guidance Documents
A variety of hosting guidance documents can be found here:
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.
