Squash

 

WMG2017 competition goal

Make the final and hopefully win my age category.  And to have fun catching up with squashies from all around the world.

Described as one of the greatest ever squash players, five times world squash champion Sarah Fitz-Gerald is a true legend of the sport. Her achievements and services to squash, along with her promotion of sport and a healthy lifestyle, have seen her inducted into the highly prestigious Sport Australia Hall of Fame and awarded the Member of the Order of Australia.

A passionate Australian, Sarah is also a walking, talking advocate of masters squash as a player and previously as an ambassador for the Sydney 2009 World Masters Games and 2015 Australian Masters Games.

Having played in New Zealand many times throughout her professional career, Sarah is very familiar with the country and what she describes as a squash playing nation with fantastic squash knowledge, brilliant players and a terrific atmosphere. “I will definitely take to the squash court at the Games and I’m looking forward to reconnecting with friends from New Zealand and overseas. I plan to bring a group of Aussies over and we might even come up with an Aussie dance to challenge the famous kiwi haka!”

As an Australian-based ambassador, Sarah will use her extensive local, national and international networks to help spread the 2017 World Masters Games message and encourage her colleagues at home and abroad to join the Games in Auckland, New Zealand in April 2017.
