Practice Courts (free of charge) are available from 15th July. The schedule of practice times will be displayed on the event website, emailed to Team Managers, and placed in Team Manager’s pigeonholes.
Practice courts have been allocated at Devoy Squash & Fitness to countries competing based on number of players using the below guidelines. This is too ensure all countries get an opportunity to practice on the courts at Devoy. Due to the large number of countries competing, there is little flexibility to change allocated times. There are overflow courts available at Mount Squash Club (3 courts) and Te Puke Squash Club (3 courts) should the allocated courts not be sufficient. These extra courts, as well as any courts that become free can be booked via the Championship Office.
Glass Court practice times have been allocated, giving priority where possible to countries with seeded players, and players more likely to play matches on the Glass Court during the event.
In addition, each day during the individual draw 15 mins of practice time between 7am and 11am will be allocated to each player (shared with 1 other player) on the court they will playing on.
When as a team you do not want to use the practice courts during the allocated hours you are asked to cancel them in order to give individual players or other teams the possibility of using them.
If a match finishes early and a court is vacant, the two teams – due to play on that court next – have priority over other countries up to 30 minutes prior to their match starting.
Any enquiries or to book additional courts, contact Marcus Niles 021 046 6838, or visit the Championship Office.
