Five Surf City Squash teams will head off around the country this week to compete for a national championship.
The B Grade men's team go to Palmerston North, the C Grade men and women go to Napier, and the F Grade men and women go to Morrinsville.
In June these teams won the right to represent the Eastern District, and they have been training hard for these events since then.
