2019-Home

As President of Queensland Masters Squash Association, I am pleased to offer a warm welcome to all competitors and their support groups for the 2019 Australian Masters Squash Championships on the fabulous Gold Coast, Queensland.

In this 40th Year of Masters Squash in Queensland, QMSA is excited to be hosting this event on behalf of AMSA. Our Organising Committee have been working hard for many months to ensure the success of these Championships and our mission is that every competitor has an enjoyable experience in Queensland.

Whether you are a competitor or a spectator, you will have the opportunity to see the great squash from Australia’s best and keenest Masters players on the court and join in the revelry of the many social functions that have been planned at some amazing venues during the Championships.

With so many wonderful attractions on the Gold Coast and hinterland area, there is an abundance of attractions that are free and all well worthwhile spending time at. With a plethora of great restaurants and taverns to enjoy a great meal and a glass of red or white, we know you will not be disappointed in your visit.

Your enjoyment of meeting up with old sparring partners, reviving former friendships and creating new friendships will be the reward that QMSA will reap in their hosting of this exciting event.

I take this opportunity to wish you all the very best of luck on the court over the two weeks of the Championships and look forward to sharing the many stories that will evolve after the event is completed.
Enjoy …in the Spirit of Masters Squash!

Robyn Prentice
President – QMSA
