Power Back for Revenge at the 9Telecom Legends
Power

Jonathon Power will return to Weybridge in Surrey for the 9 Telecom Legends of Squash tournament desperate to make amends for last year’s final defeat at the hands of long-time rival Peter Nicol. Canadian Power suffered a four set loss at the inaugural event at St. Georges Hill Lawn Tennis Club but knows better than anyone how to topple the champion this time around. 

 

 

 

Power fought Nicol on the PSA Tour for a decade in which their battles dominated the game. While the Canadian ended up with one less win in their head-to-heads, he always thrilled the crowds with his dazzling arsenal of trick shots and no lack of passion. Now 37 but still in great physical shape thanks to his role at the National Squash Academy in Ontario, Power will be hoping to top Group A with another final showdown against Nicol a distinct possibility.  

 

 

 

Few sporting rivalries can match the intensity of those in squash; the only racket sport where opponents share the same space without the separation of a net. It is a brutal version of boxing using rackets with players manoeuvring their opponents around the court looking to work them into submission or kill them off with a deadly winner. Power & Nicol have fought out many such battles over the years, and Power has never been one to enjoy losing so will be fired up this September to ensure that doesn’t happen again. 

 

 

 

“Last year’s event was a lot of fun, particularly facing up to Peter again, but the final result wasn’t so enjoyable so I will be looking to end this year’s event slightly differently!!” said the mercurial Canadian from his club in Toronto. 

 

 

 

Last year the event was close to a sell-out and tickets priced from £15-£35 for the 9 Telecom Squash Legends event are now on sale from the Ticketmaster at:
