The Bay of Plenty Secondary School Squash Championship 2018
Division 1 was held at the Devoy Squash and Fitness Centre on 16 May and the competition was fierce!
The games were action packed with the athletes battling it out for the open titles. The day saw some very intense matches and a few big upsets - what a fantastic effort to watch.
Divisions 2 & 3 were held on 23 May in Rotorua. It was an action packed day, with over 75 athletes competing across two venues.
The boys battled it out at Geyser City Squash Club and were excited to use the flash new scoring technology built into tablets. They said it helped both referees and players because it was more clear and had less room for error.
The girls played at Lakes High and competition was fierce. Although the games were at times intense, everybody had a great day and showed brilliant sportsmanship.
To top it off, as usual, Lakes High turned it on with some superb hospitality and had hot warm soup, home baking and a toasty venue for the athletes on a chilly day.
Congratulations to everyone who competed in this year's competition and a special thank you to the Tournament Directors for running such awesome events.
