In the UK, an estimated 4 million people have unaddressed hearing loss. It takes most people at least 10 years, before they do anything about it. What a waste. During this time, they miss out on 10 years worth of good hearing, at the same time as making themselves less likely to accept and adapt to wearing assistive devices.
Over the summer months winter sport players will have most likely been using the time to get into a routine of hard graft on the training pitch which is vitally important for the more than arduous season ahead. About now, in the lead up to the beginning of the competitive season in squash it becomes important to find some match play to bring all the hard training together and gather specific match sharpness.

Given that technology changes so rapidly I consider it foolish to learn the ins and outs of one contraption only to find that the next model is around the corner effectively and immediately rendering defunct, the prequel.
