Let the Love of Squash take you to Christchurch, New Zealand in 2018!

The Christchurch Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration 2018, New Zealand is only 18 months away.

Squash is one of the recent additions to our Golden Oldies sport portfolio and we are excited to be able to include this as part of our festivities.

Golden Oldies Squash Festivals are open to anyone aged 35 and over who enjoy playing squash in a friendly international competition. The key word being ‘friendly’ as whilst we all enjoy banter on and off the court, that is the extent of the competitive nature of the Festivals.

We are looking forward to showcasing yet another amazing city to the Golden Oldies Fraternity and cannot wait to host you here in April 2018.

Christchurch is a stunning and adventurous place – a perfect match for Golden Oldies. The city has gone through a large transformation in recent years and is now classed as one of the world’s newest cities. For those who have visited Christchurch before, we urge you to come see the city as it stands today and for those who haven’t been before, we cannot think of a better way for you to experience the passion of Christchurch.

Accommodation is filling up fast so we advise that you get in quick to secure your preferred hotel and room type.

The emphasis is firmly on 'Fun, Friendship and Fraternity'. As well as participants, family members are invited to attend the week-long Festival in one of New Zealand's sporting meccas and to partake not only in the action but also in the social activities that are part and parcel of Golden Oldies sports.

Christchurch is superbly equipped with squash venues to support the Festival. Competition doesn't take place every day and a highlight of the week is the mid-week picnic day where players and supporters will be transferred to Hanmer Springs to enjoy a day of superb Canterbury food and beverages.

Golden Oldies Festivals across the various sports have been held in locations all around the world. They have been responsible for many lasting friendships being forged and it is not unusual for people to make their holiday treks as part of the Golden Oldies activities. The special nature of the Christchurch Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration 2018 makes it an occasion not to be missed.
