Squash Player Magazine New Issue Now Out!17 Jan 2023
Who would you pick as Player of the Year? There has rarely in squash been a more interesting question or time. That is the question we gave to an international panel of experts from different continents and the answers are published in the latest issue of the Squash Player magazine, The Annual.
We also have the Young Player of the Year and the Most Improved Player Awards. The experts pick their Highlight of the Year, what is yours? We also have the Year in Stats - for example: what was the longest match of the year? The significant squash records that have been broken during the year are published and we also include the popular Photos of the Year.
Victor Crouin adorns the cover for the first time and readers get a change to win his racket. And read his story. The issue includes all the regulars on Gear, Club&Court, Events and Workshop in which Ali Farag explains his game in Part 3 of his My Game series.
