This was the ‘match of the tournament’ but neither player went on to win the tournament! The 102 minute semi final was an amazing contest, but Gregory Gaultier took the title by beating Nick in the final.

Peter at Newlands before coaching

I met Peter O’Hara at his home club Newlands, in Glasgow’s South side, to congratulate him on his 2013 British National Over 40 Title and ask him how he did it.

As always Peter just saw it as another match and was surprised at the number of people who have since congratulated him on his title.

Even at the championships in Manchester last month when the organisers told him all about the finals day (the announcements, the introduction to the crowd, the music as he walked out), Peter was reticent to get in the spotlight. Even the MC said “Peter, you just don’t get it do you? It’s The Finals Day of ‘The British Nationals’!”

2013 Nationals Peter O'Hara - winner over 40s D7-1 333Many Congratulations to Peter O’Hara on becoming Over 40s British National Champion for 2013.

He took the title 3-1 in just 29 minutes when he beat Jamie Goodrich (from Norfolk) in the final.

The Championships were held at Manchester’s Sportscity last week and Peter led the Scottish charge with what looks like a comfortable win (with all but one games not going over 29 minutes).

Great win for a legend of West Squash – well played again Peter (O’Harrow!)
