It is with a heavy heart that we inform the Squash Community that we have lost one of the great ones this week. After an eighteen month battle with cancer, Paul Marley passed away peacefully on Thursday afternoon.  The family will be hosting: “A Celebration of Life” at the Evergreen Squash Club on Saturday, March 15 at 4 pm.

Paul’s passing leaves a big hole in squash both within British Columbia and the world. Paul was the ultimate positive force anytime he was near a squash court. From playing in various Masters Championships to bringing squash players to BC from all over the world, his incredible enthusiasm for the sport of squash will be remembered worldwide.
