With numerous international squash professional titles, including three Australian Opens, three Canadian Opens, three European Opens, three New Zealand Opens, and two South African Opens, Chris Ditmar knows what it takes to perform and win on the world stage. His consistency helped him become the World No. 1 ranked player during the golden era of squash, an era that included the great Pakistani players – Jahangir Khan and Jansher Khan. Dittmar provided the most consistent challenge of any player to these two greats during the 1980s and early-1990s, beating them many times and being part of some of the most amazing contests the game of squash has ever seen.
Perhaps the proudest moment of his career came when as captain he led the Australian team to victory in World Team Squash Championships in 1989. Australia beat Pakistan 3-0 in the final, with Dittmar contributing a win over Jahangir Khan. Two years later in 1991, Dittmar again captained the Australian team which successfully defended the title.
Come along and enjoy an afternoon of entertainment, banter and inspirational stories with a genuine South Aussie bloke and champion. Ditts will take you on an incredible journey spanning many years as a professional athlete and leader in the demanding sport of international squash, the world of sports commentary, media and entertainment.
