Simon Warder Racquet
This is special limited edition commemorative racquet for Simon Warder an avid squash player from Canada. Simon loved every aspect of squash. He
was an avid player, a motivating junior coach and a well respected high ranking
official. But what he loved most about the game was the people. He was always
available to help with anything squash related or to just chat about anything.
His favourite line when asked “How are you?” was “Never better”. When Prostate Cancer took him away from us in December 2011, a group of friends and family decide that we wanted to honour him by hosting an annual tournament in his name. This tournament has grown significantly every year in terms of player participation and funds raised, with over $65K being raised for Prostate Cancer over the 4 years.
This limited edition racquet was designed in the Prostate Cancer Canada colours, with the tournament logo on the strings and shaft, and of course the “never better” slogan.
We hope these racquets will raise the profile of Prostate Cancer within the squash community while paying tribute to a great man. If we had a chance to ask him what he thought, I will guarantee he would respond; “Never Better”.
$20 from the sale of each racquet will go to Prostate Cancer.
(This racquet is based on the Corona 6 racquet see spec and details here: Corona 6 )
