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.
