US National Championships 2017

Absolutely thrilled to have won the 2017 United States National 55+ title against my long term rival and great friend Dominic Hughes.

Dominic’s skill, tenacity, sportsmanship and integrity all contributed to a wonderful confrontation that, on this occasion, turned out in my favor.

Many thanks to my coach who has helped me through so many crucial matches and did so again today – my wife Pat Millman.

Thanks also to my sponsors Harrow Sports and Imask protective eyewear.

Also thanks to US Squash and Philidelphia Cricket Club for the event.

And finally to all my friends and students who have been so supportive.

Please come and visit us at Scenic City Squash in Chattanooga TN.

    I have seen Dominic Hughes play a couple of times and like his style of play.
    I wish I had seen the match today. I expect that it was the most attractive match of the tournament. If there is a link to some video footage please let me know.
