Aussie Win Four Circuit Titles

Last weekend was the last tournament on the Oceania Circuit  New Caledonia International, with valuable world ranking points up for grabs. Michael Fowke from New Zealand is the only player in the region to have played in all six circuit events and the only Kiwi to win a circuit title. He wins the men's singles title for 2013 ahead of compatriot Joe Wu by 1930 points.

Australia wins the other four titles on offer. The 2013 Oceania Circuit Winners are:

Womens Singles- Tara Pilven (AUS)

Mens Singles - Michael Fowke (NZ) [pictured]

Mixed Doubles - R Veeran & R Smith (AUS)

Womens Doubles - G Somerville & J Guan (AUS)

Unfortunately due to financial pressures and no title sponsor there is no prize money this year
