Corren Celebrates Home Town Win - & 30th PSA Tour Title

Mike Corren won his 30th PSA World Tour squash title - and one of his sweetest - when he beat fellow Australian Nathan Stevenson to claim the inaugural $4,000 Millicent Open in his home town of Millicent in South Australia.

The 36-year-old beat Stevenson 11-7, 11-4, 11-9 on the courts where he learned the game.

"It was really strange - everywhere I went I bumped into people that I hadn't seen in 20 years," Corren said. "So when I should have been practising or warming up, I was chatting to people."

Corren and fellow local Ben Werchon ran some coaching clinics while they were in Millicent and Corren said he tried to send out a positive message.

"I just want people to know that even though they may come from a small town, they can still get out and see the world playing a sport they love," he said.

"I hope I inspired some of them."

The Millicent Open was the first professional squash tournament to be held in the town and was the brainchild of Corren and Squash SA marketing manager Jane Intini.

Squash SA put up some of the prize money and local sponsors came on board, including the Kimberley Clark Millicent paper mill.

Such was the success that the organisers are confident of holding another Open next year.
