Rolex Annual Awards to be announced Wednesday

It has been another rollercoaster year for professional squash. 2021 started tentatively with hotel quarantines, player ‘bubbles’, no spectators and sensational rallies greeted with eerie silence. Gradually, the old tournament hustle and bustle returned and some of our sport’s most famous venues (the Pyramids, San Francisco, Canary Wharf) were joined by some notable new ones (the Arlen Specter Center).

On court, Egypt continued to rule, although there were notable dents in their armour from New Zealand, USA and Peru. We saw the great Gregory Gaultier bow out and the sport mourned the loss of the great Malcolm Willstrop. At grassroots level, most of us were finally allowed back on court, but while the virus continues to linger the future at all levels of the game remains unpredictable.

Our Annual Awards are once again sponsored by ROLEX at Michael Spiers, an organisation steeped in squash patronage, and we welcome back our expert panel of judges from around the world. The Player of the Year will be announced on Wednesday.
