Central wins Wairarapa Cup 20/4

Squash Central played Squash Wellington in its annual One Day rep fixture on Saturday in Wellington at the Tawa Squash Club. Central retained the “Wairarapa Cup” winning 20 matches to 4. Central won the morning round 9 -3 and were dominant

in the afternoon round as well winning that 11 – 1. With Squash Wellington only having one of their Senior National Mens lineup playing in that of Scott Galloway, and the fact that they didn't field a Senior National Womens team this year they were always going to struggle. In saying that there were some good matches that pushed some of the Central players, especially the handfull of five setters that were played out. A lot of those were from some young talented juniors which was a good test for the Central players who managed to come out on top. It was good prepartion for the Central Juniors (Corbin Faint, Kairtlyn Watts and Annaleise Faint) & Masters players (Bannister and Stantiall) in the lineup as they head to NZ Junior Nationals & NZ Masters in the coming weeks.

The Central team was:
Men – Rod Bannister (Wanganui), Jason van der Walt (SquashGym), Stephen Bennett (SquashGym), Corbin Faint (SquashGym), Nick Stretton (Kawaroa Park), Brandon Keenan (SquashGym)
Women – Kaitlyn Watts (SquashGym), Rebecca Clifford (SquashGym), Chelsea Aim (Kawaroa Park), Sally Stantiall (Rangitikei), Jacinta Harrison (Kawaroa Park), Annaleise Faint (SquashGym)
