The Wright Stuff
A young squash player is making a name for himself in the region after winning the Durham and Cleveland County closed boys under 13 title. Jonathan Wright a member of Norton Squash Club and Tees Active Sports Academy won the title at Nunthorpe Squash Club by beating Will Gibbon of Yarm Squash Club 3-0 in the final.
There is no rest for Jonathan who is coached by Dave Geldhart who heads up the junior coaching at Norton Squash Club and he also receives some one on one coaching with Danny Hockborn who has just recently started playing in the PSA as he prepare for a busy schedule of tournaments.
Jonathan will be competing in the Inter Counties tournament later this month and at the end of October he will play in the regional championships. November will see this young star compete in the British Closed Championships as he builds up to the British Junior Open Championships the first weekend in January.
Jonathans delighted father Jim said “The British Junior Open Championships is effectively the Junior World Championships and to simply qualify will be an achievement, so finishing anywhere in the top 32 would be great.”
