The April WISPA World Squash rankings issued today place 34 years old Banbridge native , Madeleine Perry, at no 3 – a career best.
You will recall our reporting recently that Madeleine had defeated several top International stars en route to the final of the Kuala Lumpur Open where she finished second to World No 1 , Nicol David.
Madeleine is currently on her travels again –this time to the Cayman Islands to compete in the Cayman Islands Open – another Gold Event taking place from April 3rd – 9th 2011.
She returns to Ireland to defend her title at Irish Open in Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club, Dublin which takes place from April 11th – April 16th, and will meet Denmark’s Line Hansen in the first round. 27 yrs old Hansen is ranked 31 in the World.
A great opportunity for SportsNewsIreland readers – and indeed all Irish sports fans – to see this top Irish & World star – and others – in action , and in these tough days for the economy excellent news that admission is FREE.
