May 04 2016

UNSQUASHABLE are delighted to announce a long-term agreement with James Willstrop to endorse the brand’s range of performance rackets, clothing, strings & luggage.

The agreement formalises a relationship between James Willstrop & the iconic squash brand which started in February when the former World No.1 used UNSQUASHABLE rackets to reach the final of the British National Squash Championships in Manchester.

“I’m delighted to welcome James Willstrop to UNSQUASHABLE,” announced Jahangir Khan, the record 10-time British Open Champion who in April confirmed his own involvement with the brand which he used throughout his record-breaking career.

"James is the ultimate professional & his approach & attacking style of play have seen him reach the very pinnacle of the game as well as making him one of the most recognised & marketable players in the world. UNSQUASHABLE rackets were fundamental to my success & we are confident that this agreement will provide James with the platform to push on & build upon his amazing achievements.”

James Willstrop is a former World No.1 & remains one of the most exciting & successful players competing on the PSA World Tour.

“UNSQUASHABLE was born, as the name suggests, to focus exclusively on producing the best possible squash equipment & everyone associated with the brand is really excited to welcome James to our growing stable of international players. We are all looking forward to working with him to develop our range of performance products, including a signature racket series designed to his exacting standards. James Willstrop will work alongside our research & development team on future product innovations & his input will be invaluable in ensuring that we develop the best possible equipment not only for professional competition but also for the everyday player,” added the former World No.1 who was unbeaten in 555 consecutive matches over 5 years & 8 months – the longest winning streak of any sportsman.

James Willstrop, who is currently representing England at the European Team Championships in Poland, plays with the UNSQUASHABLE Y-TEC PRO racket & has already enjoyed considerable success during his short time with the brand, including capturing his 19th PSA World Tour title.

“Jahangir Khan is the biggest name in our sport & synonymous with only one racket, UNSQUASHABLE. The brand’s rise to prominence in the 1980s & 1990s coincided with the period he dominated the sport & set the bar so high that precious few others have come close to never mind surpassing his achievements,” said Willstrop.

"I’ve used UNSQUASHABLE rackets since the British National Championships earlier this year & I’m thrilled to be working alongside Jahangir Khan at such an exciting time for the brand.”
