The Central vs Eastern one day challenge was held on Saturday 25th May at Waipukurau Squash club. Unfortunately the normal 6 players per team was not possible due to Eastern having players pull out due to injury and illness. However, squads of 4 Ladies and 4 Men battled it out for the Newbigin Shield. After a couple of 5 setters the first round score was tied at 4 games each. 

Stratford turned on the hospitality and warm courts for some hot doubles action over the weekend 19 - 21st April. Centrals Abbie Holes of New Plymouth proved she is the most successful women's doubles player in Central history taking the women's title for the 7th year running.
