83 players competed in the Great Southern Wheatbelt Team Championships over the weekend hosted by Narrogin Squash Club – their first tournament for more than 17 years.
The tournament attracted players from all over Western Australia, including several State Grade-level players. Spread across seven divisions, players competed in teams of three for the overall honour of being crowned champion.
Premier team ‘2 Guys a Girl and a Squash Court’ (Jason Patmore, Heddwyn Brahma and Zoe Petrovansky), defeated a Mirrabooka team in the final in close and enthralling matches played out on the show-court.
Of the 83 players, 23 represented Narrogin Squash club. Jarrod Denholm, Victor Ranieri and Chris Allan comprised the winning division 4 team, while Liam Ranieri, Jane Pratt and Kai Armstrong comprised the runner-up division 7 team.
After some incredible squash was show-cased, players were treated to a function on Saturday Night in the John Higgins Community Complex, as well the second-to-none hospitality that Narrogin Squash Club is famous for.
The Club would like to thank major sponsors Shire of Narrogin and South32 for their contribution, as well as many other fantastic sponsors from around town. The Club is also incredibly grateful for the small army of volunteers who kept the tournament running smoothly and players fed.
The Great Southern Wheatbelt Team Championships will be played in Katanning in 2023, before returning to Narrogin in 2024.
