As President of Queensland Masters Squash Association, I am pleased to offer a warm welcome to all competitors and their support groups for the 2019 Australian Masters Squash Championships on the fabulous Gold Coast, Queensland. With so many wonderful attractions on the Gold Coast and hinterland area, there is an abundance of attractions that are free and all well worthwhile spending time at. With a plethora of great restaurants and taverns to enjoy a great meal and a glass of red or white, we know you will not be disappointed in your visit. Your enjoyment of meeting up with old sparring partners, reviving former friendships and creating new friendships will be the reward that QMSA will reap in their hosting of this exciting event. I take this opportunity to wish you all the very best of luck on the court over the two weeks of the Championships and look forward to sharing the many stories that will evolve after the event is completed.
