Harrow Sword

It’s a pleasure to introduce the Harrow ‘Sword’ racket which was developed in memory of Derek Sword. Derek was one of Scotland’s top junior players in the in the days when Peter Nicol and Martin Heath were also making their way in World Squash.

Derek tragically died in the 9/11 attacks in New York and friends including Peter and Martin helped arrange the Derek Sword Trophy, which is now played annually by a New York and a UK team. The 140gm navy & white racket (from a Vapor mould) has Scottish, UK and USA flags and makes mention of the match venues of Edinburgh, New York and London (where the trophy has been contested) on the frame itself.

From this match the legacy was developed into ‘World Squash Day’ and this year the date is 5th November (should be some fireworks that night!).
