Kyme to face White on Opening Night…

Bermuda’s Nick Kyme will take on former World Number One and Squash’s hardest hitter John White in front of a sellout crowd in the Randall & Quilter Legends of Squash Bermuda next week…

Kyme is no stranger to this type of high profile match having twice played world number ones in Bermuda before.

In 2005-06 he took on David Palmer and Thierry Lincou respectively pushing Lincou hard in the PSA Bermuda Masters event.

This match with White should be spectacular though with White widely recognized as the hardest hitter in squash with shots clocked at 176mph!

"I’m so up for this event," said Kyme, "it’s a thrill to play these guys and I’m going to do my best to pull off a big win for Bermuda."

The Randall & Quilter Legends of Squash event starts on Wednesday 9th April and features six former world number ones in 4 days of competition.

The draw includes the legendary Peter Nicol, world number one for an incredible sixty months. Jonathon Power, North America’s greatest ever player and Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist, Thierry Lincou, France’s former number one and world champion and David Palmer, the double world open champion and four time British Open winner.

The stars have a busy week with a full schedule of children’s and adult coaching clinics as well as some private one on one sessions for local squash enthusiasts.

Franklin's Focus

Bermuda National Squash Champion and current World #162 Micah Franklin gives his views on the draw in Franklin’s Focus…

"Watch out for the Palmer v Power match on opening night! I watched these guys play here in Bermuda for 80 minutes a few years ago and it was awesome!

"Another favourite of mine will be the Power v White match on the Friday. Two of the best shot makers in the game and one not too miss."

Full Draw & Schedule

"We are thrilled to have the Legends coming to Bermuda. The kids are excited to get on court with them and everyone is really looking forward to watching the players in action each night."

World number one for an incredible sixty months and winner of every major event in squash Peter Nicol said: “All the players are so excited to be heading back to Bermuda. We’re going to have some great games, get a chance to work with all the kids and hopefully some time to get to really see Bermuda. I can’t wait.”

The Randall & Quilter Legends of Squash event will also offer a massive coaching boost to Bermuda’s players with 12 junior clinics and 2 adult clinics being hosted allowing individuals to get on court and improve their game by working with a former world number one.

BSRA Director of Squash Patrick Foster said: “We are all so excited. These are not only some of the best players of the last 15 years but they now hold some of the best coaching roles around the world.

"They bring a wealth of knowledge to help with our squash programme and will be entertaining everyone each night with their amazing skills. It’s great for squash in Bermuda.”
