Australia & Hosts Canada Win World Hardball Doubles Titles

Australia and hosts Canada won the men's and women's titles, respectively, in the 2011 World Hardball Squash Doubles Championships in front of a capacity crowd at the Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club in Toronto.

In the men's final, top seeds Team Australia, comprising Damien Mudge & Ben Gould, fought back from 2/1 down to defeat Team England, the No2 seeds featuring John Russell & Clive Leach, 15-7 13-15, 12-15, 15-5, 15-9 in a 105-minute marathon showcasing the power, finesse, unbelievable retrieving and athletic ability with which the men's hardball game has now become synonymous.

Stephanie Hewitt & Seanna Keating produced a dramatic and popular upset for the hosts in the women's final by beating top-seeded Team Australia, featuring Narelle Krizek & Natarsha McElhinny, 7-15, 11-15, 15-7, 15-11, 15-12.

"It was an exciting match that displayed the best of women's doubles squash and highlighted why the women's game has grown so much over the last few years," said event spokesman James Hewitt.
