Rainbow Squash Teams Tournament:
On the weekend 26,27 April the Rangitikei Rainbow Squash Teams Tournament sponsored by McLwaines Mitre 10 was held.
Four competitive teams were assembled with each player playing three games to go towards their teams total. Team challenges (quizzes, puzzles etc)also accumulated points for an overall champion team.
The red team (Tim Mattocks, Sally Stantiall, Joce Broadbelt, Biddy Rogers and Max Murphy) were too strong throughout their team and won the squash. The yellow team (Blair Robinson, Simon Nitschke, Stu Tasker, Angela Gust and Heather Plank) proved to be the most multi talented team taking the overall champion team when the intellectual challenge results were added to the squash.
The wearing of team colours was encouraged and Stu Tasker set the scene on Friday with his yellow ensemble of yellow shoes, shorts, warm up shirt, playing shirt, racket and.........gloves. All teams came dressed to impress on Saturday. The blue team (Dan Fairburn, Tarsh Hancock, Pauline Slovak, Paige Stantiall and Mel Andrews) went all out with body paint and smurf uniforms. This team won the best dressed team but had to spend extra time washing body paint off the court walls and themselves after play had finished. Everyone looked fantastic but this teams effort was exceptional – well done.
Player of the tournament was Angela Gust and match of the weekend was between Jordyn Rogers- Holden and Mel Andrews.
Best dressed individuals were Stu Tasker and James Gust. James also picked up the the title of the loudest person. A title he won with consummate ease.
Dan Fairburn (AKA Poppa Smurf) was voted the players player of the tournament.
The club hopes to run a similar event later in the season if there is a gap in the calendar.
