Superstars set for return to the court
The Bermuda Squash Racquets Association will once again be staging their annual Randall & Quilter Legends of Squash tournament.
The event, taking place from April 7 to 10, will feature eight superstars of the sport, all of whom reached the very highest echelons of the game in their professional careers.
The field is led by David Palmer, of Australia, the double World Champion, four-times British Open Champion and Commonwealth Games gold medal-winner.
He will be up against a strong field of rivals, including Jonathon Power, the Canadian former world champion, Simon Parke, of England, the former world No 3, and Scotland’s John White, the former world No 1 and arguably the world’s hardest hitter.
Also gunning for glory will be former British Open Champion David Evans, England’s Nick Taylor, L.J. Anjema, of the Netherlands, and England’s Peter Marshall, the double-handed player, who famously reached World No 2 before succumbing to chronic fatigue syndrome ending his quest for the top spot.
“This year’s draw is really exciting with some new faces joining the Legends pool,” said Patrick Foster, the director of squash at the Devonshire club
“Squash fans will be thrilled that we have L.J. Anjema and David Evans competing, as well as the fact we have finally managed to attract Peter Marshall for a first trip to Bermuda.
“It’s always a busy week with member clinics, professional lessons, kids sessions, masters clinics and of course the actual competition all happening over just four days. We are all set and ready for a great week.”
