Stephen MacDonald won the men's open grade at the Makarewa Squash tournament in 1980. McDonald played Des Barnett and the first set was over before Barnett realised he was on the court. MacDonald did not give Barnett time to settle and left him dead on his feet with good volley's just above the tin.
Barnett left his run a bit late and put pressure on MacDonald in the third set but it only lasted a short while and it confirmed why he is one of the top ranked squash players in Southland.
The women's grade was won in a decisive manner too by Jan McAra (Blues) and it was the experience that won over Joan Pankhurst (Makarewa).
Some of the Makarewa players to feature were Warren Boniface beating John Colhoun for third 9-7,9-3,9-5. Paula McDiarmid beat J. Russell, Georgina Ellis beat J. McCallum Hilary Mortimer beat J. Hunt
