Kyme returns after two-year absence
Nick Kyme, Bermuda’s most decorated Squash player, returns after a two-year injury lay-off in the XL Catlin Bermuda Squash Racquets Association Club Championships next week.
Kyme, a former world No 63 and winner of 15 BSRA club titles, was struck down by a serious calf injury which has prevented him from competing since 2015.
He will be one of 79 players competing in the BSRA Club Championships.
Kyme, 36, is upbeat as he prepares for the championships.
“It’s been a long road back from what didn’t seem like a big injury at first,” Kyme, who has represented Bermuda at five Commonwealth Games, said.
“I’m so happy to be back playing properly again and totally up for getting my title back.”
Rachel Barnes returns as defending champion in the women’s event but will face strong challenges from Sarah Nicholson, Grace Edy and Jayne Craig.
As always the championships feature veterans’ divisions for men and women as well as a host of graded draws.
Patrick Foster, the BSRA director of Squash, said: “The BSRA is thrilled to partner with XL Catlin not only in the BSRA Club Championships but also next month’s XL Catlin Junior National Squash Championships.
“This event highlights everything great about our club with entries ranging in age from ten to 70-plus years old, all battling together in a really fun environment.
“Please come down and watch some great squash and check it out for yourselves.”
Matches start on Monday with the finals being held on Friday, December 1 from 6pm. Admission is free.
