Alex Fuller and Cheyna Wood won the Tswalu South African National Doubles Squash Championships, on Sunday, 26 February 2023, at the Johannesburg Country Club.

Fuller and Wood escaped with the title following a tight contested game against the Gqeberha pair of Hayley Ward and Lizelle Muller.

The pair of Fuller and Wood won the first game 11-8 but Ward and Muller led 6-3 at one stage in the second.

Fuller said it was a massive honour to take the Tswalu doubles title.

“To win any national title is always special and it was amazing to win this one with Cheyna,” the world’s 25th ranked player.

“We have a good understanding of what to do on court and we just make sure that we trust each other and that’s why it works.”

Wood, who won the title last year with Muller, was happy that the profile of squash doubles is being raised in the country.

“I think doubles is under-rated because it’s very competitive internationally. And we have proven that we can do well overseas.

“The competition in South Africa is getting stronger every year and we need to build on that so we can compete internationally.”
