Ismail 'Smiley' Khalil won the Under 11 national title last weekend despite only being ranked 7th in the country. He overcame the 3rd seed in the quarters, 2nd seed in the semis and the 1st seed, Dylan Kalar, in a tense final, where he recovered from match ball down in the 3rd game to win 11-9 in the decider!
Other members of the RyderSquash junior academy that were playing the event finished as follows:
Hassan Khalil - U17s - 3rd
Jack Awuye-North - U15s - 12th
James Averill - U13s - 6th
Ali Khalil - U11s - 10th
