A four-strong New Zealand squad has been named to contest the women's world team squash championship in November.

The team is headed by world No.11 Joelle King, who earlier this week beat Hong Kong's Annie Au 5-11 11-8 11-3 11-9 to win the Macau Open in China.

King, 27, is gradually returning to her best after rupturing an Achilles tendon two years ago, which sidelined her for nine months.

She will be joined by Megan Craig, Amanda Landers-Murphy and Emma Millar in Paris, with Ellie Epke named non-travelling reserve.
