The Kiwi squash No.1 is doing dance training online in lockdown, now in her ninth week on her own indoors.

Joelle King has won her eighth New Zealand squash title

King beat second seed Amanda Landers-Murphy 11-2, 11-4, 11-6.

"Eight? Really. I didn't know that. I thought it was seven," King said. "It's actually hard to play Amanda. She's such a nice person. It's hard to play someone you really like.
"It's nice to play in New Zealand which I hadn't done for a while, so it was great to play in front on a home crowd. It's pretty cool to win your national title.

"I'm going to take a little bit longer to rest and look at how to approach the new season."
