The Bay of Plenty Junior 900 Series is a group of tournaments played in one day at various clubs around the Bay. It’s a great way to introduce new players to competition, give established juniors regular matches, and instill the values and expectations on our new players.
The constant feedback we get around Junior 900 events is that the kids love them because they can play in a non-intimidating environment, and parents love them because they are all done in one day! It is about growing our game and providing a great vehicle for our kids to ‘get the bug’. Kids will not be charged an entry fee for the series.

2020 Series Report
The 2020 HEAD Junior 900 Series has been a ripper this year! 7 events, 91 kids, 300 entries, and a whole lot of fun! The last event was held at Devoy Squash, and it was a fantastic occasion. The series points table has been hotly contested this year, and it came down to the last match to decide who would round out the top 5 and grab the major HEAD prizes.
The big prize this season went to Devoy’s Payton Korewha, who improved on his 2nd place finish last year. Payton went from J2 to E2 during the course of the season.
The ‘Best & Fairest’ coaching award went to Te Puke’s Charlie Stubbing who won $100 worth of coaching.
During the series, players were nominated as 'best & fairest' for behaviour and attitude. Each of the nominees got a small prize, and went into the draw to win a $100 coaching scholarship from Squash BOP. The lucky winner this year was Charlie Stubbing from Te Puke.
Massive thanks to the clubs that hosted each event, and of course to our wonderful sponsor HEAD. Looking forward to next years series!
