Steve won his first match 3-0 against a player from the Netherlands. He went on to win two and lose two. “International competition is very hot, even in my age-group,” he said.
Steve has been playing for 37 years. “I have played in two previous world titles (Cape Town in 2006 where I won the Special Plate and Christchurch in 2008),” he said. “I played at State Grade level 20 years ago and now play A Grade. My best win was winning the Victorian State Masters Men’s 60-65 year title in April 2011.”
Steve plays squash because it is very good for maintaining a high level of fitness which supports a good physical wellbeing and is a deterrent to disease and sickness. “The challenge also seems to sharpen my reflexes and acuity not only on the court but off the court in business dealings and general day-to-day activities,” he said. Along with yoga, running and weight training, squash is “a great tonic for maintaining a happy and balanced lifestyle”.
