What the Pros Use - Peter O'Hara (British O40's Champ)

This week's profile is on Peter O'Hara. Although not a current pro, Peter is a multiple Scottish National Champ, ex Scotland No 3 and hero firefighter. In fact, Peter actually compiled his profile for me whilst on a break from putting out a level 2 grass fire. #WhatAGuy

For those who don't know Peter, he has more sponsors than a formula 1 car, including my own sponsor, Eye Rackets, and is a big promoter of junior squash and trying to make squash accessible and appealing to all, especially in underrepresented communities. Peter is a family man and a straight talker, not afraid to speak his mind!
