I started squash when I was 8 years old. Both my mum and dad played it and my older brothers started to train every Saturday with the local coach Mark Hobday, therefore I decided to try the sport instead of just watching. I had played tennis for fun since a young age and so I already had a feel for racket sports, therefore I really enjoyed squash. I was then asked to play for Kent when I was 9 years old, and I was inspired by the older girls. I was then invited to regional training which moved my squash on to another level. Eventually I began to play tournaments and I remember being impressed by the final of the girls U13 English closed between Lucy Beecroft and Ellie Lake. Since then I have enjoyed playing in European tournaments and meeting people around the world.
I have also played a number of other sports such as football for both the school and a local team, netball for the school, cross country for Swale and kent, athletics for Swale and cycling. I have also represented my school skiing team.
My most memorable sporting achievement was winning the Dutch Junior Open, which is one of the biggest European tournaments, beating the number one in Europe at the time.
My biggest sporting disappoint was losing in the semi finals in the English closed against the number three seed. However I have not lost to her since!
My biggest sporting hero is Daryl Selby because when I was younger I was inspired by a speech that he game at a tournament as he described his life of becoming a professional squash player.
None so far.
