Canary Wharf Squash Classic 2010

What a semi-final night at the PSA Canary Wharf Classic in London on Thursday night. The game of the tournament saw an epic 2 hour and 7 minute match between Nick Matthew and James Willstrop (which included a 20-18 win in the 3rd game to Wilstrop).

After the 7th minute of the third hour of this grueling match James had to retire in the 5th game at 8-10 (match ball) after cramping up whilst diving for a ball in the back of the court!

In the final Gregory Gaultier faced Nick Matthew and it was Nick who prevailed by winning his first Canary Wharf Title 3-1 (12-10  6-11  13-11  11-3). For more detail click here.

Blair Christie Joins Harrow

I’m delighted to announce that Blair Christie is the newest member of the Harrow Squash Team and will be playing and coaching with the Harrow Vapor.

Blair is an ex-Scotland International at Under 16 & 19 and was Scottish No 1 for around 18 months at Under 19; as well as being U19 Scottish Champion (he also captained the U19 team at the Worlds in Hong Kong and the European Championships in Denmark).

All-in-all Blair received around 50 caps at all levels (including Senior B squad several times in home internationals – and this was in the days when Scotland had Peter Nicol/Colin Keith/Peter O’Hara/Barry Sutherland etc) and he’s now developing squash in Central Scotland where he has recently started coaching.

Another great name plays with Harrow!
