New Zealander Paul Coll has taken out the Fitzherbert Rowe Lawyers New Zealand International Squash Classic at SquashGym this afternoon in emphatic style.

Coll entered the match as slight favourite but he had never beaten Rex Hedrick in any of their previous meetings.


SquashGym were seeded 4th going into the 2016 Mitchell cup. There were 9 teams entered so we were put into 3 pools of 3 teams, with the team who topped the pool then going on to compete with the other two top teams in their pools for the Mitchel Cup. On Friday we were first up against 3rd seeds, Royal Oak.


This week InspireNet SquashGym in Palmerston North hosts the Fitzherbert Rowe Lawyers New Zealand International Squash Classic. This is the fifth year the event has included a PSA section and the Women’s Classic will also be a Closed Satellite professional event.
