REPORTS

Egypt defeat USA in thriller to retain WSF Women's World Team Championship



Egypt defended their WSF Women's World Team Championship as a star-studded lineup overpowered maiden finalists USA in front of a sellout crowd at the Madinaty Sporting Club, Cairo.

The hosts, represented by World No.1 Nouran Gohar, World No.2 Nour El Sherbini, World No.3 Hania El Hammamy and World No.6 Nour El Tayeb had reached their sixth final without dropping a match, with Gohar's 3-1 win over Aifa Azman in yesterday's semi-final representing the only game lost by the top seeds.

The USA, represented by World No.5 Amanda Sobhy, World No.10 Olivia Fiechter, World No.15 - and younger sister to Amanda - Sabrina Sobhy, and World No.20 Olivia Clyne came into tonight's tie having already made history by reaching the final, with fifth being the No.2 seeds' previous highest finish.

In a thrilling opening match, the best contest of the tournament, Gohar was pushed to the very brink by Sobhy.

The World No.1 had looked in complete control when she took a 7-0 lead in the first game, only for Sobhy to dig in brilliantly.

In front of a raucous crowd, Sobhy began to pull points back. Although it was too late to rescue the first game, which Gohar took 11-7, the American levelled the scores with a well-deserved 11-5 win in the second.

The 29-year-old then took a hard-fought and feisty third game 12-10, putting Egypt behind for the first time in the tournament.

Now, though, it was Gohar's turn to show her mettle. After falling behind in the fourth game, 'the Terminator' saved two match balls to level the tie with a 13-11 win.

Roared on by 1,500 fans and with her opponent beginning to wilt, Gohar pressed her advantage in the decider, firing past Sobhy time and again to hand Egypt a crucial one-match lead with an 11-8 victory.

In the second match of the tie, El Sherbini quickly snuffed out any hopes of a repeat of the tension that had accompanied the first tie.

The 'Warrior Princess', the defending individual as well as team world champion, wasted no time in going after Fiechter, with the American going down 11-3, 11-4, 11-5 in 21 minutes to deliver a fifth title for Egypt.

"If this match hadn't been played in Egypt, I don't think I'd have done it," Gohar said afterwards.

"The comeback was purely because of the crowd. A big thank you to them and all my teammates, they're the best, honestly. They're the best in the world."

El Sherbini added: "I was very nervous and tense [watching Gohar's match]. I couldn't warm up because I was just there watching. It was very hard to come on court after her match!"


Engy Kheirallah

Egypt Coach Engy Kheirallah said: "Winning the title at home feels amazing.

"I kept telling Nouran 'You are a champion, you've been through much worse. You can do it and we're all backing you."

USA Coach Ong Beng Hee reflected: "We are very proud of the girls, with the way they have been all week, close together, pushing in the same direction and playing as a team. It was a fantastic performance."

At the prize ceremony, bronze medals were given to England and Malaysia, while awards were also given out to recognise a number of outstanding achievements.

Japan's Satomi Watanabe, who won all six of her matches, was awarded Most Valuable Player. South Africa, who beat their predicted finish of 12th by three places, were awarded Team of the Championship.

Speaking at the closing ceremony, WSF President Zena Wooldridge, OBE, said: “This Women’s World Team Championships concludes a really outstanding year of squash events in the post-COVID era.

"This is the first Women’s World Teams we’ve had for four years, so it’s great to see everyone back. The Women’s World Team Championship is always a special event, and I think it’s something the players really enjoy; they don’t get to play team events too often. You can tell the dynamic, the atmosphere and the experience is really fantastic for the teams.

“Here today, we’ve had two nations fielding the strongest women’s teams that they’ve ever had and it’s produced some really world-class squash. We also see a representation of the universality of squash; we have four teams from four different continents on the podium this evening."

Wooldridge added her gratitude to the Egyptian Squash Federation and venue owners Talaat Moustafa Group for hosting a spectacular championship and final, and to the refereeing team, which was represented evenly by male and female referees for the first time in tournament history.
Day 6

USA to face Egypt after downing England to reach first World Team Championship final


USA Huddle

USA will take on top seeds and defending champions Egypt for the WSF Women's World Team Championship title after making history by beating England to reach their first ever final.

No.2 seeds USA, who had never before beaten England at the World Team Championship, went in as favourites to reach the final and impressed yesterday when whey ended a run of three consecutive fifth-place finishes by beating Canada in the quarter-final.

The confidence in the USA team only grew when it was announced that England No.1 Sarah-Jane Perry was carrying a knock and would be unable to compete.

In the opening match, quick-footed World No.15 Sabrina Sobhy gave her team the advantage as she safely navigated past World No.49 Julianne Courtice 11-5, 11-5, 11-3 in 25 minutes.

In an entertaining second match, USA's World No.5 Amanda Sobhy - the older sister of Sabrina - took on World No.22 Jasmine Hutton.

In yesterday's quarter-final, Hutton was praised for putting in what England Coach David Campion called a "career-best performance" as she came in for the third match to rescue England against France by downing former World No.2 Camille Serme.

Hutton again looked threatening today and she deservedly took the first game 12-10 after accurate play at the front of the court.

Sobhy responded well in the second game and opened up a 10-7 lead but was reeled in by Hutton, who pulled the scores back to 10-10.

The Englishwoman, however, was unable keep up the momentum and Sobhy eventually drew level with a 13-11 win.

From here, the American pushed on as her attacking instincts came to the fore. Buoyed by the morale-boosting game two win, Sobhy took the third game 11-7 and then coasted home with an 11-2 win in the fourth to send USA into the final for the first time.


Amanda Sobhy

Afterwards, Amanda Sobhy said: "Relief and excitement [are the main emotions felt afterwards].

"We're proud of what we did, proud for our country, for the team and for each other."

US Coach Ong Beng Hee added: "We felt the pressure. With Amanda having a hard match yesterday, we were not sure about her condition, but today, she showed up."

While USA will back themselves in tomorrow's final, they will no doubt have taken note of the continued devastating form of hosts Egypt, who blew past Malaysia to reach their third consecutive final.

The top seeds have assembled one of the all-time great teams for this year's championship, with World No.1 Nouran Gohar, World No.2 Nour El Sherbini, World No.3 Hania El Hammamy and World No.6 Nour El Tayeb all established giants of the game.

Up first tonight for the reigning champions was El Hammamy, who wasted no time in getting stuck into Malaysia's World No.75 Yiwen Chan.

While Chan battled hard, she could do little to prevent the 22-year-old from giving the top seeds a one match lead after a defeat in straight games.

World No.31 Aifa Azman was able to offer more resistance, with the 20-year-old taking a game from Gohar - the first Egypt had dropped all tournament - but eventually fell to the World No.1's relentless power and pace as 'the Terminator' ended the tie with a 3-1 victory.

Afterwards, Egypt Coach Engy Kheirallah said: "Aifa's game is a bit unorthodox and difficult to read, so you need to be on your toes and alert. And sometimes you wake up and it’s not your day.

“But at the end of the day, that’s what makes [Gohar] World No.1. Even when she is not at her best and not 100 percent, she still delivers. And that’s what makes top players special.”


Nouran Gohar

The final of the WSF Women's World Team Championship will take place at 20:00 (GMT+2) at the Madinaty Sporting Club tomorrow, December 16, with a pre-final concert taking place from 18:00.

Day 5

USA reach maiden semi-final as they join England, Egypt and Malaysia in last four

Team USA made history as they overcame rivals Canada to reach the semi-finals of the WSF Women’s World Team Championship for the first time.


Amanda Sobhy

The No.2 seeds, who have finished fifth at the last three tournaments, had impressed in comfortable pool stage victories over wins over Australia, Germany and 7/8 seeds Scotland, but were pushed to the limit in the opening match tonight, which pitted USA’s World No.5 Amanda Sobhy against Canada’s World No.17 Hollie Naughton.

Canada No.1 Naughton came flying out of the traps as she took the game to the US No.1 Sobhy, before the American began to feel her way into an entertaining and even match.

With a 10-2 lead in the fifth game, Sobhy looked nailed on to give her team a one-match lead, only for Naughton to miraculously save every match ball. The Canadian had a chance to win it with a match ball of her own at 12-11, but Sobhy dug in well and eventually took the opener for USA with a 14-12 win.

Following Amanda was younger sister Sabrina Sobhy, who was able to put the tie to bed without drama as she beat Nikole Todd 11-5, 11-6, 11-1 in 20 minutes, with Olivia Fiechter putting the icing on the cake with a 2-0 win in the best-of-three rubber against Nicole Bunyan.

USA coach Ong Beng Hee said afterwards: “I think we were under a bit of pressure, it was obviously a big day for us, particularly as we’d never made a semi-finals and that was at the back of our mind."

USA's opponents tomorrow will be England, with the seven-time champions playing the most dramatic tie of the day as they came from behind to beat No.4 seeds France.

The No.3 seeds were staring down the barrel of an early exit when No.1 Sarah-Jane Perry lost 3-1 to Melissa Alves, before Lucy Turmel dragged England level with a 9-11, 11-6, 11-6, 11-3 win against Coline Aumard.


Jasmine Hutton (arm raised) & Team England

In the decisive third match, Jasmine Hutton put in a masterful performance as she completely outplayed former World No.2 Camille Serme to record a 3-0 victory in just 24 minutes.

"That was an unbelievable performance from Jazz, on many levels. To come in under pressure and know that it's on her; that's the best she's ever played, by a country mile," England coach David Campion said.

In the top half of the draw, defending champions Egypt and 2014 runners up Malaysia will meet after they overcame 7/8 seeds Scotland and 5/6 seeds Hong Kong, respectively.

Malaysia started well against the side that pipped them to the Asian Team Championship last month when Aifa Azman put in her best performance of the tournament so far to beat Sin Yuk Chan 3-1.

In an uneven second match, Yiwen Chan delivered the tie for Malaysia with an 11-1, 7-11, 11-0, 10-12, 11-6 win, with Rachel Arnold adding the extras with a 2-1 victory over Ka Yi Lee.

"I think the girls wanted their revenge, they were pretty fired up," Malaysia coach Ajaz Azmat said afterwards.

Egypt, meanwhile, showed more of the outstanding form that has come to be expected, with World No.1 Nouran Gohar, World No.3 Hania El Hammamy and World No.2 Nour El Sherbini cruising to victory over World No.58 Georgia Adderley, World No.133 Katriona Allen and World No.119 Alison Thomson.

“I think there’s always a pressure playing in Egypt because of the expectations, especially when you have World No.1, 2, 3 and 6 in the world," Egypt’s coach Engy Kheirallah said afterwards.

The semi-finals of the WSF Women's World Team Championship will be played tomorrow, December 15 on Madinaty's outdoor glass court. Egypt will play Malaysia at 17:30 (GMT+2), followed by England v USA at 19:30.

Day 4

Hong Kong, China upset England to top Pool C as quarter-finalists confirmed


Sin Yuk Chan

No.5/6 seeds Hong Kong, China, overcame No.3 seeds England to top Pool C on the final day of the pools stage of the WSF Women’s World Team Championship.

On the indoor glass court at the Madinaty Sporting Club, the defending Asian Team champions made a strong start as World No.37 Sin Yuk Chan came from 2-1 down to beat World No.22 Jasmine Hutton 3-2.

Hong Kong, China had a chance to finish the tie inside of two matches when their No.1 Tomato Ho went 2-1 up against Sarah-Jane Perry, only for the England No.1 to roar back with a bagel and then a comprehensive 11-4 to level the tie.

England appeared to be out of the woods when World No.31 Lucy Turmel opened a 2-0 lead over Tsz-Wing Tong. Tong, however, mounted a brilliant comeback of her own to stun the seven-time champions, with the World No.44 pounding the glass in delight after taking the final three games 11-8, 11-5, 11-9.

Afterwards, Hong Kong, China coach Peter Genever said: “I’m delighted. They played really well but that was a really good tie, and a tough one, with them all going to five games. I’m really pleased.

“We all know Tong is a fighter, she’s known for that and to be 2-0 down and things not looking that good, but once she got that third game we thought ‘she’s renowned for sticking in there and being tough to beat’ and thankfully she did that again today.”

In a rematch of last month’s Asian Team Championship final, Hong Kong, China, will face Malaysia in the quarter-finals tomorrow after the 5/6 seeds fell to a 2-1 defeat to No.4 seeds France.

France, whose Camille Serme and Melissa Alves impressed in taking the first two matches of the Malaysia tie, will take on England.


World No. 1 Egypt's Nouran Gohar

Prior to France’s tie on the outdoor glass court, defending champions and top seeds Egypt continued their comfortable progress through the competition and they romped to victory against 7/8 seeds Canada.

Canada, who opted to rest their No.1, Commonwealth Games silver medallist Hollie Naughton, were unable to lay a glove on Egypt in a brutally one-sided tie, with Nour El Sherbini, Nouran Gohar and Nour El Tayeb needing a total of just 57 minutes to deliver the win.

“All the girls are in top form, despite them all coming from the Hong Kong Open, where they all had very tough matches. Their performances today were spot on,” Egypt coach Engy Kheirallah said.

Canada will go into a North American derby with neighbours USA tomorrow after the No.2 seeds easily dismantled 7/8 seeds Scotland, who were without their No.1 Lisa Aitken after the World No.28 was forced to withdraw from the tournament due to an injury suffered in yesterday’s match with Australia’s Donna Lobban.

Despite the defeat, Scotland go through to the quarter-finals as runners up in Pool B. They will face Egypt in the first tie on the outdoor glass court tomorrow, which takes place at 17:30.

Elsewhere, there were wins for Switzerland, Australia, South Africa and Finland in their final pool ties.

The quarter-final stage of the WSF Women’s World Team Championship begins tomorrow (14 December) from 17:30. You can watch the glass court action live and free on WORLDSQUASH.TV.

Day 3

Women's World Team Championship - top spot in all pools up for grabs tomorrow

The pools stage of the WSF Women's World Team Championship will reach an exciting conclusion tomorrow, with the top spot up for grabs in all four pools.

Malaysia and France will battle it out for the top spot in Pool D after Malaysia edged past Japan in a competitive encounter on day three of the tournament at the Madinaty Sporting Club in Cairo, Egypt.

5/6 seeds Malaysia, runners up in 2014, went into their tie with Japan as favourites and hit the ground running when Yiwen Chan stormed past Risa Sugamoto 3-0 in 20 minutes.

Japan pulled level when Malaysia’s Aifa Azman, who was 2-1 down at the time, was forced to retire hurt in the fourth game of her match with Japan’s Satomi Watanabe.


Rachel Arnold

Malaysia’s World No.25 Rachel Arnold, though, was able to remain steady as she held off a spirited challenge from 17-year-old World No.98 Akari Midorikawa 11-6, 11-2, 11-9 to setup an enthralling encounter tomorrow.

“This was an important tie. Aifa was playing well in her match but then had the injury, but she’s doing fine now. She and the other three girls are playing well. Rachel really played well [to close out the tie]. We’re hoping to take France tomorrow afternoon. We want to finish number one in our group,” Malaysia coach Ajaz Azman said afterwards.

Tomorrow will see a number of blockbuster ties when the pool stage concludes tomorrow.
5/6 seeds Hong Kong, China, will take on England for top spot in Pool C after they got the better of South Africa on the outdoor glass court.


Ka Yi Lee

While No.3 seeds England may go into that clash as slight favourites, they will have taken note of the performances of Ka Yi Lee and Sin Yuk Chan after they secured the victory with wins over Cheyna Wood and Lizelle Muller either side of Hong Kong No.1 Tomato Ho’s 3-2 defeat to Alexandra Fuller.

"It's always tough against South Africa, they usually play above their level in the team events and they gave us a really tough challenge tonight," Hong Kong coach Peter Genever said.

7/8 seeds Scotland, meanwhile, will compete with No.2 seeds USA for the top spot in Pool B tomorrow after they overcame Australia - the most successful team in tournament history with nine titles - 2-1, though there will be great concern in the camp after Scotland No.Lisa Aitken suffered what appeared to be a serious injury.

Scotland’s meeting with the No.2 seeds may be a particularly tense affair, with the runner up in Pool B scheduled to play the Pool A winner, which will be either 7/8 seeds Canada or top seeds and defending champions Egypt.

Egypt and Canada will meet tomorrow on the outdoor glass court to play for the group winner’s spot after Canada came from one match down to beat Switzerland.

In the day’s other tie, Finland picked up their first win of the championship as they overcame debutants Chinese Taipei 3-0.

The pools stage of the WSF Women’s World Team Championship concludes tomorrow (13 December) from 17:30 (GMT+2). You can watch the glass court action live and free on WORLDSQUASH.TV.

Day 2

Canada survive scare on day two of WSF Women's World Team Championship

No.7/8 seeds Canada survived a challenging encounter with Wales to win their first tie of the WSF Women's World Team Squash Championship at the Madinaty Sporting Club in Cairo, Egypt.

Wales - who prior to the tournament had been expected to be seeded fourth until they lost World No.13 Tesni Evans to injury on the eve on the tournament - made an inauspicious start as Stacey Gooding was dispatched by Nikole Todd in just 18 minutes, but fought back brilliantly in the second match through Lowri Roberts.

World No.151 Roberts went 2-0 down to World No.50 Nicole Bunyan, before targeting the back corners well in a spirited comeback as she levelled the tie with a 3-2 victory.


Hollie Naughton

Canadian No.1 and World No.17 Hollie Naughton, however, was able to keep her cool in the decider against Welsh World No.21 Emily Whitlock in an entertaining clash, with 2022 Commonwealth Games silver medallist Naughton recording a 11-8, 11-9, 8-11, 11-7 victory in 42 minutes to win the tie.

“I think it was a good team performance, Nicole [Bunyan] was unlucky. Nikki played great and Hollie is a great number one; it was a super strong performance!" Canada's coach Vicky Lust said afterwards.

For the rest of the seeded teams, the day was a largely trouble-free affair. Top seeds and defending champions Egypt, playing in the day's final match on the outdoor court, were in ruthless form even without World No.1 Nouran Gohar, with Nour El Tayeb, Hania El Hammamy and Nour El Sherbini easily brushing aside the Welsh team playing its second tie of the day.


Nour El Sherbini

USA, seeded to challenge Egypt for the title in the final, were also in top form, with Olivia Clyne, Sabrina Sobhy and Olivia Fiechter breezing past Germany's Maya Weishar, Katerina Tycova and Saskia Beinhard.

Elsewhere, today saw a second team make its championship debut, following Chinese Taipei's debut yesterday.

Ukraine, whose juniors also made a debut appearance in this summer's WSF World Junior Championship, marked a first ever appearance at the Women's World Team Championship with a 3-0 defeat to Hong Kong, China in the morning session and then a second whitewash against England in the evening session.

Ukraine coach Kostiantyn Rybalchenko was in an upbeat mood afterwards, despite the defeats. "This is a perfect time for our team and our country to be represented and competing in this championship. It's such good news for us," he said.

The pools stage of the WSF Women’s World Team Championship resumes tomorrow (12 December) from 17:30 (GMT+2). You can watch all of the action live and free on WORLDSQUASH.TV.

Day 1

Defending champs Egypt make crushing start at World Teams

Hosts and defending WSF Women's World Team Champions Egypt made the perfect start to their title defence as they breezed past Switzerland as the championship made its long-awaited return.

After a lengthy hiatus for the World Team Championship, which was last played in China in 2018 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Egypt squad quickly reminded the watching world why they were seeded top and clear favourites for the title.


Nouran Gohar (headband)

World No.1 Nouran Gohar set the tone for a dominant performance in the first tie of the pools stage at the Madinaty Sporting Club. The 25-year-old was in typically efficient form as she stormed past Switzerland's Cindy Merlo 11-4, 11-2, 11-3 in 18 minutes before Nour El Tayeb and World Team Championship debutant Hania El Hammamy finished the job with 3-0 wins of their own over Ambre Allinckx and Nadia Pfister, respectively.

“It’s always great to play the World Teams, especially after we missed it for four years! Now we’re back in Egypt and it’s very special to us. We hope we can make everyone here proud," Gohar said afterwards.

Elsewhere, there were battling wins for both France and England. France, seeded fourth and recalling Camille Serme and Coline Aumard from retirement, fell behind in their clash with Japan when Satomi Watanabe got the better of Melissa Alves 11-4, 8-11, 12-10, 11-5 in an entertaining 42-minute encounter.

Alves' teammates Serme and Aumard quickly steadied the ship, though, with Aumard levelling the tie with a 3-1 win over Risa Sugimoto before former World No.2 Serme completed the comeback by beating Akari Midorikawa 3-0 in 19 minutes.


Jasmine Hutton

No.3 seeds England, meanwhile, recorded a 3-0 win over South Africa. Jasmine Hutton led the team out and came from 2-1 down to edge past South Africa No.1 Alexandra Fuller 3-2 in a tense meeting, before Julianne Courtice - a late call up in place of the injured Georgina Kennedy - and Lucy Turmel wrapped up the match with comfortable straight-game victories over Cheyna Wood and Lizelle Muller.

"When we saw the order of play, we realised it was probably not as favourable to us we would have liked, French National Coach Philippe Signoret said afterwards.

"Satome is a player in great form at the moment, and here, she proved it yet again.

"We've played Japan three times in the World Teams and each time, they give us hell!"

In the day's other matches, [5/6] seeds Malaysia swept debutants Chinese Taipei aside in a total of just 43 minutes, while No.2 seeds USA - hoping to improve on three consecutive fifth-place finishes - eased past Australia 3-0.

The pools stage of the WSF Women's World Team Championship resumes tomorrow from 11:00 (GMT+2). You can watch all of the action live and free on WORLDSQUASH.TV.

Players announced for 2022 WSF Women's World Team Championship

The squad list for the 2022 WSF Women’s World Team Squash Championship has been announced, with teams from all over the globe selecting some of the world’s best players to battle it out in Madinaty Sport Club, Cairo, Egypt.

The championship, which will be played 10-16 December and is set to feature 17 teams, is a biennial international tournament which sees four-player squads from each country compete in best-of-three-match clashes.



For hosts and defending champions Egypt (above), World No.1 Nouran Gohar leads a devastatingly strong team that boasts four of the world’s top six players. The 25-year-old, who won the 2016 and 2018 World Team Championships, is joined by three-time champion and World No.2 Nour El Sherbini, World No.3 and Women’s World Team Championship debutant Hania El Hammamy, and two-time champion and World No.6 Nour El Tayeb.


Olivia Clyne

The USA, who will be hoping to improve on fifth-place finishes in 2018, 2016, and 2014, will travel with what is arguably the strongest ever US Team assembled, with World No.4 Amanda Sobhy, World No.11 Olivia Fiechter, World No.18 – and younger sister to Amanda – Sabrina Sobhy, and World No.20 Olivia Clyne selected.

England, seven-time winners and runners up in the last edition, will go in with confidence after winning the most recent European Team Championships. World No.8 Sarah-Jane Perry leads the team, with World No.9 and 2022 Commonwealth Games singles gold medallist Georgina Kennedy, World No.27 Jasmine Hutton and World No.30 Lucy Turmel completing the lineup.

The France team, which finished joint third in 2016 and 2018, has been boosted by dramatic returns for former World No.2 Camille Serme, who retired from the professional game in June 2022 and former World No.20 Coline Aumard, who retired in the same month, with the duo joining World No.32 Melissa Alves and World No.43 Enora Villard.

Hong Kong, China, winners of this year’s Asian Team Championship, name an unchanged lineup to the team that upset Malaysia earlier this month in Cheongju, with Tomato Ho, Sin Yuk Chan, Ka Yi Lee and Tsz Wing Tong returning to competitive action.

Also appearing at this year’s Women’s World Team Squash Championships are Ukraine and Chinese Taipei, both of whom are making their competition debuts.

Ukraine will be led by Anastasiia Kostiukova, with talented juniors Milena Velychko, Sofiia Zrazhevska, and Anastasiia Krykun joining the squad.

Chinese Taipei, meanwhile, will be represented by Yi-Hsuan Lee, Yuan Wang, Wei-Ting Huang and Yi-Chun Wu.

Here’s how some of the players have reacted to their selection:
Egypt’s Nouran Gohar: “I’m extremely happy to be representing my country, Egypt, at the World Teams event this year, in Egypt. I can’t wait to have all of the Egyptian crowd out cheering for us!”
England’s Georgina Kennedy: “Representing England at the World Team Championships in Egypt is a huge honour for me. It is always a special feeling to wear the England shirt and I am particularly excited because I have never played World Teams before. The England Team have such a good dynamic and I am so excited to see what we can do this year! I feel really lucky to be a part of this team and I can’t wait to get out there and compete for our country!”

Ukraine’s Anastasiia Kostiukova: “It will be the first time our women’s team [has competed] at the World Championship and I’m feeling excited to go for this amazing experience . For me, it’s a great honour to take part in the event and I will do my best to represent my country. I’m very excited to do that!”

The USA’s Amanda Sobhy: “[There’s] no better feeling than representing your country. There are only a few chances every couple of years that I get to play for the US, so to be suiting up in the red, white, and blue alongside my teammates is an amazing feeling. We have a really strong team and have been looking forward to Women’s World Teams for the last 4 years, so we are excited to show the squash world what the US women are capable of!”

Wales’ Tesni Evans: “It always means a lot to play for Wales; I have some really good memories in a Welsh shirt and am always so proud to put on the shirt and give everything for the team! I’m really looking forward to the World Team Champs. It’s always a great event; it’s always fun to play team events and play for your country! So it will be fun and I look forward to seeing how Wales can do!”

Three England stars to debut at 2022 WSF Women’s World Team Championships


Gina Kennedy, Jasmine Hutton, Sarah-Jane Perry, and Lucy Turmel

England Squash has announced the quartet that will head to the 2022 WSF Women’s World Team Squash Championships in Cairo from 10-16 December.

Georgina Kennedy – the current Commonwealth Games gold medallist, Jasmine Hutton, World No.26, and World No.30 Lucy Turmel will all make their senior world debut alongside World No.8 Sarah-Jane Perry who’ll lead out the team.

The quartet, who were crowned European Team champions for the 41st time in May, will combine youth with experience, with 32-year-old Perry making her fourth World Team appearance.
Seven-time world champions England will be striving to go one better than their 2018 runner-up position and reclaim the title they last won in 2014.

England Squash National Coach David Campion said: “We’re thrilled to field three debutants in our World Teams squad. These girls are young and on the rise and they have shown what they are capable of throughout the year. Sarah-Jane provides the much-needed experience within the team and I’ll be looking to Gina, Jazz and Lucy to step up to the task. Despite being a new team, we are still amongst the favourites for medals which is exciting.”

England captain Sarah-Jane Perry added: “The World Teams is always such a special experience and to share it with three debutants this year definitely makes it a memorable one. They were exceptional at the European Teams in April and I can’t wait to head to Cairo with them in December. We’re going to give it absolutely everything we’ve got.”

World no. 9 Georgina Kennedy said: “I’m so excited to pull on the England shirt again and play alongside such a talented squad. Nothing quite beats the feeling of doing your country proud and it’s a huge honour to be selected for this prestigious event.”

The biennial tournament will feature 17 teams with England facing a strong challenge from hosts Egypt that will feature a number of the world’s top 10 players.
