What the Pros Use - Peter Creed (WR 53)
This weeks profile is on Mr PVD Creed. Peter is a seriously fast mover around the court and despite being smaller in stature than most, he's big on personality and is incredibly well liked and respected on the PSA tour. When not on the squash court playing or coaching, he works on a squash fashion line called PS Wear which he co-founded www.psdudes.com
Peter plays for one of my old clubs, Rhiwbina (Cardiff, Wales), in the Welsh Premier League, when not touring the world and soaking up the sites. Peter is actually running a couple of camps (Jnr and adult) this summer at the club - well worth getting in touch with Pete for more info (see contact details on attached flyer)!
