Gerry Shugars’ squash career has spanned 4 decades, beginning in 1966 to the present. During this period, he achieved North American notoriety in two different games. He won 10 Canadian Hardball Championships and 7 U.S. Hardball Championships.
As North America began to play the soft ball game, Gerry directed his attention to this new game and proceeded to win 11 Canadian Soft Ball Championships and 7 U.S. Soft Ball Championships. He also won the 1985 World Masters Soft Ball Championships.
The number of titles is mind-boggling but they are even more astonishing when seen through the prism of age – Gerry began his squash career after he turned 30 years old.
