Legends of Squash returns to Aberdeen

Home hero John White to defend Xodus Legends of Squash title in Aberdeen

The Xodus Legends of Squash tournament returns to the Aberdeen Squash & Racketball Club next month, with six former world number ones set to renew rivalries in Scotland. 

The event, which was first launched in 2010, will feature Jonathan Power, John White, David Palmer, Thierry Lincou, Lee Beachill and Peter Nicol, who will all face each other in a new round-robin format from March 21-23.

Peter Nicol 2Organiser and competitor Peter Nicol (pictured left) said: “To have the support of Xodus Group and bring six of the best squash players who ever played the game to Aberdeen Squash and Racketball Club is really special.

“Xodus commitment to squash and in particular ASRC is hugely important and all the Legends are excited to be playing in Aberdeen again.

“With the addition of Thierry Lincou and Lee Beachill, this event will eclipse all the other Legends events to date and I personally look forward to getting on court with the guys to duel it out”

Current Xodus Legends of Squash champion, John White, added: “I was really glad to see the event postponed from its usual time slot in September as I was not going to be able to defend my title due to other commitments.

“This is my opportunity to show just how good I still am by beating all the guys and enjoying my time with my friends at ASRC. Bring it on!”

A limited number of tickets are available for Aberdeen Squash and Racketball Club members, before going on public sale early next month. For more details and to reserve your place, click here.
