Squash stars in showdown
The stage is set for an eagerly anticipated exhibition squash match tomorrow evening at the Court House Health Club on Church Street when two-time world champion Nicholas Matthew returns to Bermuda to face fellow Englishman Peter Barker.
Matthew last visited the Island for the 2007 Endurance World Open when he reached the semi-finals. The world number four will again be looking to produce entertaining squash when he meets Barker, who has also carved out a reputation as one of the game's top talents.
At 33, Yorkshireman Matthew is four years older than Londoner Barker who climbed to seventh in the world after winning the 2013 Malaysian Open.
Event organiser Daren Ramsey anticipates an exciting encounter when the two players take the court.
“We have two big names coming in, Nicholas Matthew, the world number four and two-time world champion, and Peter Barker who is a bit younger and has just started to peak a little bit,” said Ramsey who is the squash professional at Court House.
Tickets for the match have sold out.
