Sumner Malik Celebratory 2019

Sumner Malik Celebratory Event : Sunday 3rd August, Nottingham

The Sumner Malik Celebratory event brings together the Squash community to commemorate the life of Sumner Malik.

This year’s event will see the show taking the format of England v Rest of the World!

Sumner’s charisma, fun-loving personality, and passion for Squash brought together the global Squash community who rallied to help him battle Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumor.

Unfortunately, Sumner lost his battle to DIPG last year, but the love, encouragement, and affection of the Squash community were always a huge part of his optimism in facing this hard battle.

On the 3rd of August, we want to celebrate Sumner’s life and the kindness of the Squash community that we are all so lucky to be a part of. Professional players, coaches, juniors, parents, fans… all together for a fun day of Squash!

Team England and Team Rest of the World line-ups:

England: Declan James, Nick Matthew, Sarah-Jane Perry, Alison Waters, Millie Tomlinson.

ROTW: Joel Makin, Greg Lobban, Tesni Evans, Coline Aumard, Donna Lobban.
