“Players in the five age groups performed exceptionally well with 178 matches played over the two days.

“The Coffs Harbour Squash Centre were justifiably proud of the standards on display and we congratulate all the participants on their effort over the two days.

“There were some fantastic matches in all divisions throughout the day especially in the Boys and Girls U/13s which went the distance and were both decided in the fifth game.

“Players from interstate took home the U/11, U/15, U/19 Girls and U/15 Boys,” said Saxby.

After the individual presentations the New South Wales team was announced where four players from Coffs Harbour were named in the state team.
