"Professional Squash has been my life for the best part of 12 years, I have achieved many of the goals that I set out for myself and many more I never knew were within my reach. I have made good friends, travelled to interesting and diverse places and had experiences that will continue with me forever.
I love the game and I am very excited about the opportunity that is now in front of me. Colombia is a growing Squash nation in South America, they are passionate and enthusiastic people and I am looking forward to working with the players and association going forward."
We wish Martin well in his new role and congratulate him on his playing career.
