New Zealand's CWG squash squad

Shelley Kitchen has been selected to lead the six-member New Zealand squad.

The former world number six gave birth to her first child in February, but has returned to the court, looking to add to the silver and bronze medals she won in Melbourne four years ago.

Kitchen will team up with world number 14 Jaclyn Hawkes in the women's doubles and Campbell Grayson in the mixed event. Both combinations claimed gold at last year's Australian Doubles Championships in Melbourne.

There is also a second women's pairing, Joelle King and Tamsyn Leevey. King will also feature in the mixed doubles event with world number 42 Martin Knight, while Knight and Grayson will be playing partners in the men's doubles.

New Zealand's top two ranked men's players have established a great understanding in doubles squash, winning silver at last year's Australian Doubles Champs in Melbourne and fourth in the Commonwealth Games in 2006.
