Ronnie Sinclair

The WSF is saddened to report that former President Ronnie Sinclair has died in hospital in his native Edinburgh, Scotland following a month-long illness. Sinclair, who was President from 1985 – 1989, was a Scottish junior and senior squash international before becoming President of the Scottish Squash Association and subsequently a founder member of the European Squash Federation and its first treasurer before becoming a Vice president and then President of the ISRF (former name of World Squash Federation).

A popular and effective administrator, his profession was accountancy; and even after retirement from practice he specialised in forensic accounting on behalf of various bodies alongside his charity work.

An active orienteer, golfer and cyclist in addition to coaching squash; he will be greatly missed by his wife Careen, son and daughter, and grandchildren. Our thoughts are with them at this very sad time.

  1. Ronnie Sinclair was a class act through and through. With a twinkle in his eye etched with a bit of humor, he moved the ISRF forward in a mature fashion and with total dedication. My thoughts are with Ronnie and his family. Farewell my friend.
