1999 Men's British Open Squash Championship

The 1999 Eye Group British Open Championships was held at the Aberdeen Exhibition Centre, with the early rounds and qualifying at the Aberdeen Squash Rackets Club, from 6–12 December 1999.
Jonathon Power won the title defeating Peter Nicol in the final. Nicol was forced to retire at one game all due to illness. He spent three days on a drip at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary after suffering from food poisoning. The illness was caused by Nicol ordering a take-out pasta dish in his home town.[1]
