WSF Women’s World Team Championships Squad
The squad to represent England in the WSF
Women’s World Team Squash Championships 2016 has been announced by
the England Squash national coaching team.
The Team England quartet includes: Laura Massaro (Captain), Alison
Waters, Sarah-Jane Perry and Victoria Lust.
Currently boasting four players in the world top 20, and led by
World No.2 and 2014 World Champion Laura Massaro, Team England will
be striving to defend the title they won in 2014 when the event was
last held in Canada.
David Campion, National Senior Coach at England Squash commented,
“We have selected a team we believe are strong contenders and have
every chance of successfully defending our title. Laura and Alison
have vast experience in World Team events, and both are in excellent
form leading into these Championships. Sarah-Jane has recent back to
back victories against two top 5 players, and Victoria Lust
deservedly earns her selection having been a consistent performer on
the World Tour throughout 2016.”
Team Captain Laura Massaro said, "I'm really looking forward to
competing in France with the team. We compete as individuals most of
the time so it's great coming together as a team and supporting each
other. Going in as defending champions means the pressure’s on us,
but we are ready for the challenge."
The event, due to be staged in Paris from 28 November to 3 December
2016 will see 19 nations compete for the coveted title including
Egypt, Australia and Malaysia.
The event will take place at the historic Jeu De Paume and St Cloud
Squash clubs, with final stages being held on an all-glass court at
the Palais Des Sports Robert Charpentier.
