James Stout, the reigning Singles and Doubles World Rackets Champion has made the decision not to defend his title as Singles World Champion.
Stout first won the Singles Championship in 2008 by defeating incumbent Harry Foster, and went on to defend his title three times in the next 9 years. Notably, he lost just one game in the process, an incredible feat!
The North American Racquets Association thanked Stout for gracing them with his genius on the rackets court over the last decade. Stoutís brilliance on the rackets court will be missed, though everyone is glad that he will continue to coach and compete in Doubles Tournaments.
