New Zealand is hosting the 2015 Oceania Junior Championships. The event will be played at Squash City Invercargill from 17-19 April 2015. ALL players MUST be available to play from midday Friday 17 April.
The event has been registered on the WSF World Junior Circuit, meaning players are eligible for world junior ranking points. As a World Junior Circuit event, players need to register for a WSF SPIN number to be eligible to enter. These can be attained from the World Squash Federation website. Once a player has registered for a SPIN number, the number stays with them for life, and makes entering international events much easier. The NZ Junior Open (one week before the Oceania Junior Championships) has also been registered as a World Junior Circuit event, so a SPIN number will be necessary for this event as well.
No player can enter the Oceania Junior Championships without a SPIN number.
A poster will be made available in due course. In the meantime, entries can be sent in using the entry form below.
The official events that NZ send a representative team to, are the Men's and Women's Senior and Junior World Team Champs and the Commonwealth Games. However, NZers often participate in other international events.
Individual players enter PSA (Professional Squash Association) and WSA (Women's Squash Association) - you can see which kiwis are on the Pro circuit and follow their upcoming tournaments in the Kiwis Playing Overseas section.
When: 20-27 July 2012
Where: Birminghan, England
