PE Teacher World Squash Success!

Anglo European School's PE teacher Jackie Gregory finished 11th in the World Squash Final. Jackie told us:  This competition takes place every 2 years for men & women squash players in the Masters age group.

This year the tournament was hosted in Birmingham in July. There were 58 different countries playing, strongest contingencies from England, South Africa and Germany.

Having trained on court with my coach Chris Vine and trained in fitness in the gym. I won my first match in fighting form 3-1 against a girl I previously lost too! and continued strongly through the tournament to be knocked out by the No5 seed from South Africa 2-3, a close and tough match, finishing in the top 11.

Really pleased with my performance and thank you to everyone who has supported me along the way both within school and outside.

Now back on court and training in the gym for this seasons competitions!
