Australian Teams named

Commonwealth Games gold medalists Cameron Pilley, David Palmer, and Rachael Grinham will form the backbone of Australia’s teams at the World Doubles Championships to be held in Darwin in August.

Pilley, currently Australia’s top-ranked player at 14 in the world, will team up with 20th ranked Grinham in the mixed doubles and Australia’s other top 20 player, world number 16 Ryan Cuskelly, in the men’s doubles.

Palmer, a two-time gold medalist in Glasgow, will partner world number 21 Donna Urquhart in the mixed doubles and number 56 Rex Hedrick in the men’s doubles.

In the women’s doubles Grinham and Urquhart will form one combination, while leading Australian-based players Christine Nunn and Sarah Cardwell will make up Australia’s other team.

“We are very excited about the teams we have been able to put together for this prestigious event,” Squash Australia High Performance Manager, Stewart Carson, said.

“We had such a successful Glasgow Commonwealth Games campaign, and it’s fantastic that all of our gold medalists will be playing on home soil against the world’s best.”

Michelle Martin will be the coach accompanying the team.
