James and Kennedy favourites for British U23 Titles 

This weekend sees the British U23 Championships return once again to Hunts County Squash Club in Cambridgeshire. Last season saw Charles Sharpes (Surrey) and Carrie Ramsey(Yorkshire) take the prestigious British titles which through the support of the Hunts County team have become much desired on the domestic squash calendar.

The favourite for the menís title is Declan James (Nottinghamshire) who has had a great start to 2015, winning the London U23 Championships and the Guilfoyle Financial PSA Classic in Canada and is now No66 in the World Rankings. James is likely to meet 3/4 seed Ashley Davies (Derbyshire) in Saturdays semi finals should matches go to seed, Davies will be looking to make his mark in this event after an injury hit start to his professional career.

The bottom half of the draw sees former European U19 Champion Richie Fallows (Essex) as the No2 seed. Fallows, still 19 is now world No75 and making good progress on the tour having won the Pilatus Cup and reaching 7 semi finals in the past year. One of those semi final results was against Declan James in the London U23 Championships which James won in the 5th, Fallows will be hoping for a role reversal should they meet in the final on Sunday. James Earles (Yorkshire) occupies the 3/4 seeded position in the bottom half and will be sure to test Fallows for that final spot having reached 3 tour semi finals himself this year so far.

The current World University Champion, Millie Tomlinson (Derbyshire) comes into the event as top seed in the Womens draw. Tomlinson now No61 in the world rankings is starting to make progress on the tour after studying in America and now has 2 tour titles to her name, most recently the Liberty Bell Open in January. Seeded to meet her in the final is the current English, British and European U19 Champion Georgina Kennedy (Kent). Kennedy, world ranked 89 recently won the London U23 Championships and will be looking to cause an upset and add the British title to her collection. Jess Davies (Cheshire) and Alison Thomson (Surrey) hold the 3/4 seeded positions and they will also be hoping to have their say on who contests the trophy.  

To add an extra bit of spice to proceedings the winners of the two titles will be rewarded with local spots in the Allam British Open Qualification which takes place in Hull between 9-17 May.

Play starts at Hunts County Squash Club at 14.00pm on Friday 24 April and concludes with the finals from 1.00pm on Sunday 26 April.
