Sadness at the passing of Essex squash legend Hazel Marsh

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of legendary Essex squash player Hazel Marsh.
Hazel, from Chadwell Heath in Romford, won several world masters titles and was still playing squash well into her 85th year.
Her death this week at the age of 89 will sadden everyone that knew this quite remarkable lady.
Hazel took up squash when she was 40 and competed in tournaments across the world as an inspiration for squash players to continue with the sport into their senior years.
She will be sadly missed by the whole squash community and all that had the privilege of meeting her.
Our thoughts today are with her memory and her family at this sad time.
