I am a South African squash player and started playing since the age of 9. I guess you can say I have hit a few balls in my life. My parents also play squash, so thats where I was introduced. My mom was actually pregnant with me while playing. Now you will be asking, why did I decide to play squash at a young age?
When I started getting results as a junior in SA, I really enjoyed winning matches and tournaments. Every time that inspired me to try and win even more and to keep improving.
I enjoy playing squash now because its just an amazing physical, mental and skill challenge all in one! Every time you train and see the improvement its really motivating to get even stronger and faster. When you start getting results doing that, you know you are on the right path! Its also the perfect way to see the world and to meet people from all over the world!
My goal in squash is to reach the top 20 in the world and want to win a lot of PSA titles. Representing my country at the World Team Championships is always something to look forward to as well as being the no1 female player in SA!
