It is an exciting mixture of returning Masters representatives and an equally exciting number on debut. 
The 3 Selectors have put considerable thought over the past 6 months into the makeup of this team based on a wide range of criteria. Some positions were relatively clear-cut while with others, there was very little to distinguish between the very high quality of contenders.
We believe we have selected a team which will do New Zealand proud.

Test 2: Tuesday 10th October – Wanaka Squash Club
Test 3: Thursday 12th October – SquashCity Invercargill
