OPEN HISTORY

The New Zealand Open launched in 1976. Remuera’s Pam Buckingham won the first women’s cup and Bruce Brownlee, from Rotorua, was the first men’s champion. The level of international competition started to really heat up in the early 80s, and many New Zealand Squash Open winners went on to become world champions.

New Zealand’s Ross Norman won three NZ championships in a row from 1984 to 1986, and Dame Susan Devoy dominated the women’s tournament, winning a massive seven titles in a row from 1984. Norman went on to win the World Open 1986, and Devoy won the World Open four times. One of the biggest names in New Zealand squash today, Dame Susan Devoy helped the game take off, with her British Open win in 1984 coinciding with the entry of sponsor Honda into the national squash scene.
