Masters squash is one of the strongest age groups within Squash New Zealand: masters make up the majority of our playing numbers, and regularly represent New Zealand with distinction at World Championships. The masters age group is catered to with a range of tournaments (for players over the age of 35), and district organised interclub (generally for players over the age of 40). In addition to this Squash New Zealand also organises and runs a series of Masters National Events, which clubs around the country take turns at hosting. For information on hosting these events, click here.
The Squash New Zealand masters programme is organised by Wayne Seebeck (director). Wayne is also the convenor of the national masters selection panel, which also includes Stephen O'Toole and Kaye Jackson. The masters selecton panel selects the New Zealand team for the biennial Trans-Tasman Test series versus Australia.

The 9th International Masters Squash Open 2015 will be in Orlando, from September 12 to 19.
Since 2007 a group began organizing the International Masters Squash Open and other projects for Senior Players.
"We have a dream. To encourage Seniors Players 80 years and over to continue playing squash and competing on an International Level. Seniors Players become ambassadors and Sport Gladiators showing children and young adults they can and "must" compete even at the end of life"
They want to encourage Seniors to stay active and healthy no matter what their level of play and abilities are. They want you to come, have fun, make friends for the rest of your life.
Currently in the tournament they have some players with cancer that come to compete. Their reason being they do not want to miss meeting their new and old friends from around the world each year. This really is exciting and even more so when one of them leaves the champion in his or her category.
The tournament has been organized on a yearly basis in different cities around the world (Buenos Aires, Bogota, Rio de Janeiro, Cancun, Valencia (Spain), among others) promoting the activity and concept: Seniors Players are ambassadors for life.
