WSF Women’s World Team Squash Championships News

Australia Names Strong Squad for World Teams Championships

Two of Australia’s most exciting young squash players will join with the country’s two most experienced to contest the 2016 WSF Women’s World Team Squash Championships in Paris in November.

25-year-old Christine Nunn and 23-year-old Tamika Saxby will join former world number one, Rachael Grinham, and former top 20 player, Donna Urquhart, in the unique teams’ competition.

Urquhart and Grinham were members of the Australian team that last won a World Team title, in 2010.

Saxby’s selection caps off an outstanding run of form since she returned to Australia in May this year, including four consecutive Australian PSA titles, and has seen her world ranking climb to 68.

Nunn reached a career high ranking of 36 in July, while 29-year-old Donna Urquhart is currently ranked 21st and will be competing at her fourth World Teams Championships.

39-year-old Grinham made her World Teams Championship debut in 2002, a successful year for Australia, and followed up with further success as part of the 2004 team.

2016 will be Grinham’s sixth World Team Championships.

Australia has won nine titles in the 37-year-history of the World Teams Championships, making it the most successful team in the event.

19 nations will compete in this year’s World Championships, to be contested from November 28 until December 3.
