Nick Matthew & Daryl Selby’s “Back To Squash Tour” kicks off at Club Towers

4 June 2021

We are absolutely delighted that Nick Matthew and Daryl Selby are putting on an exhibition night at the Club on Friday 10th September. We are all very excited by what is bound to be a great night’s entertainment and can now release details of what the night entails and how to purchase tickets.

For those who follow the sport closely Nick and Daryl will need no introduction; both have been at the very top of the sport over the past decade or so and are household names. Nick is a former 3-time world champion and Daryl spent much of his career in the world top 10. Both have represented England many times including a superb victory at the world team championships in 2013, beating Egypt in the final. Another career highlight for Daryl would have to be a win in the 2011 national final against Nick Matthew himself. Perhaps a good question to ask him about on the night!

Squash has endured a really tough year with very little opportunity for play and so Nick and Daryl decided to put on the “Back to Squash Tour” sponsored by across 10 different venues around the country to promote the sport and get us all inspired again. Club Towers is the first leg of the tour so they should be nice and fresh and are sure to provide good entertainment throughout the evening. They will be taking part in a Q&A and then retiring to the bar afterwards and will be available to talk informally over a beer or two.
