HARALD MARTIN, 2017
As an accomplished competitor and an outstanding builder, Harald Martin’s greatest contribution was an instructor – the legendary ‘coach’.
His success as a competitor – Quebec champion (1936 – 37 and 38, and 1948), finalist in the Canadian championship (1935 and 1938-39), winner of the Canadian veterans’ championship (1955) and doubles ( 1936 and 1937, and 1953), and also won numerous titles at the Atwater club between 1935 and 1954. Selected for the Canadian team at the Latham Cup on 14 occasions, and also at the Grant Trophy.
As president of the Canadian Squash Association, Harald was the author of his new constitution aimed at better coordination between administrative bodies across the country. In addition, he is also the author of the book “Squash for Beginners”, written and offered for the benefit of the Association.
As a coach, all participants – men, women, young and old alike – enjoyed constant encouragement and expert advice – both at Club Atwater and at McGill University. As a volunteer, but the official coach at McGill, between 1950 and 1968 no Canadian university team won against McGill, and it was also the case for most of the games against American universities, with the exception of Harvard. Among his many protégés were Peter Landry, the brothers Quain, Smith Chapman, David Pemberton-Smith, Marc Lalonde, George Tooley, his three sons, Sally Johnston and Sandra Harris.
