Hugh Dibben

Hugh Dibben excelled in four sports — tennis, basketball, volleyball and cricket — over a 40-year competitive career in which he was fiercely aggressive but always maintained a sense of fair play.

He played cricket for the Peterborough Whitaker Cricket Club from 1948 to 1967, a highlight coming in 1948 when his team won the Matthews Cup, emblematic of Provincial Championship Honours. As a 40-year-old member of the Quaker Park Tennis Club, Hugh excelled as a doubles player. He paired Don Little to the 1968 Kawartha League title, and Tony Bigg to the 1973 crown. He also won the City Singles Championship in 1972 and was a member of two championship-winning Quaker teams.

In volleyball, Hugh competed 35 years and was a member of the All-Ontario Intermediate championship team in 1961. An outstanding 20-year basketball career included a COSSA championship with PCVS in 1949, and an Intermediate B Ontario title in 1963 with Fitzgerald Fuels.

And don’t forget that he was also the city table tennis titlist in 1953.
