On their home courts, Mick Fullick, Shane Franklin and Brad Fullick beat University's Todd Noon, Todd Riches and Adam Walton 2-1 to claim the A-grade title.

Cardiff also retained top ranking in the women’s competition, after Jodi Spicer, Lynn Herring and Julie Campbell won 2-1 against Michelle Barry, Gina Williams and Carmel Tapley.

Medowie (men’s A2), Hit N Dip East Maitland (men’s A3 and B1) and Dora Creek (mixed) took out titles in the lower grades.

NSW Squash vice-president Tim Toohey was among the faces in the crowd.

“We saw players from Wyong to Gloucester in action, and right across the board the competition was strong,” he said.

The next major event on Cardiff’s courts will be the Lake Macquarie Open on July 22 and 23.
