·   Sustain, grow and promote all aspects of squash, including organization of events and developing bespoke initiatives to increase the number of participants at the grassroots level.

Oxford Open Tournament

The Squash season is nearly back and for all the restless souls out there the OXFORD CLUB is hosting their OPEN in February this year. The club has undergone many repairs since the earthquakes and is now looking in tip-top shape and is hosting this open with the hope of making their club look even better.

Oxford is a welcoming and tidy 2 court complex 30min outside of Christchurch that includes fascinating views of the Canterbury plains along the way and has the famous Sheffield pie shop just around the corner (I've been told these pies are to die for) as a great food stop.

The Oxford Open will be a great tournament for everyone and if you want to sign up then go to https://www.squash.org.nz
