Hopeless seeding of international players, draws cooked (organisers kept re-randomising without visible justification, seemingly until certain players received a favourable result across Oceania and AJO), grossly unfair match scheduling affecting certain players across Oceania then AJO (2 hours minimum playing gap regularly cited - the tournament was played in stiflingly conditions and there was extensive opportunity to schedule such matches at the start and end of the day), failure to maximise the opportunity (draws were not played out for all positions and opportunities for additional matches (e.g. Swiss draw) were only used where there were few entries). U11 pool B final round matches scheduled ~ 2 hours before finals contested against fresh pool A players, both matches occurring in the heat of the day!?! Obviously organisers had it in for an U17 seed, who was pitted against a quality Malaysian player inexplicably unseeded in both Oceania and AJO in the heat of the day, which he just managed to defeat in both, then he was asked to back up two hours later in both and succumbing in both second matches with exhaustion an obvious factor? The organisers clearly did not have the best interests of all players at heart. Some were very clear about their support of certain players who magically happened to generally end up with favourable draws and match schedules. The failures came from the top. Squash Australia let us down and requires a major overhaul! By contrast, the people on the ground in the canteens and upkeeping the courts were fantastic and worked tirelessly when matters arose.

Nerang courts were ridiculousy hot and in extremely poor condition. Made for a very uncomfortable tournament as both spectator and player.
Parking was good. Food options limited.
