After all the hard work and coaching that Poppie Jaram has put in over the last few months with her coach Gary Crossland ably assisted by Matt Stephenson her development has not gone unnoticed as she has been offered a fully funded place on a 2 week squash camp at Amhurst College, Massachusetts USA. The lead coach for this camp is Peter Nichol former world number 1. This is a fantastic opportunity for Poppie.
Last weekend (17th/18th June) Poppie played in the silver tournament at Hull playing up an age group in the girls under 19s where she finished in a credible 3rd place. In the semi- final she played the number 1 seed Charlotte Jagger who is ranked 5th in England. In a battle that lasted over an hour in very testing hot conditions Poppie narrowly lost 2 games to 3. (9 11, 16 14, 12 10, 8 11, 9 11). The next day she beat Gabriella Mawson the number 2 seed 3 games to 0.
Poppie has also been selected to represent North East England in the Junior Regional Championships to be held at Leamington Spa.
Then on the 6th July she flies out Germany to compete in the Cologne Junior Open before travelling to Amsterdam to compete in the Dutch Open. She returns from Holland for a few days rest before jetting off to Boston USA.
These are wonderful achievements, and show tremendous dedication from her, all her coaches and parents.
