Many congratulations to TWSRC junior member Jessica Fleming.
Jessica, age 13, recently won the Independent Association of Prep Schools ('IAPS') Annual Open Girls Singles event so becoming the National Junior Prep Schools champion. The tournament was played at Wellington College in Berkshire. On her way to the title she had to beat the England-ranked top players from 3 significant squash playing prep schools, Wycliffe, Millfield and St. Josephs.
Jess who lives in Tunbridge Wells attends the Langton Green prep school Holmewood House where she started in the game 2½ years ago. She is coached by Mary Scott-Miller, England Squash level 3 coach, who is in charge of squash at Holmewood House and is also a coach at TWSRC as I'm sure you all know. Jess played for Kent U15 Girls team at no.3 in the 2018 Inter County Junior Girls Championships.
Despite all this squash activity Jess's primary sport is hockey in which she is part of the South-East girls regional squad in addition to playing for the Kent team.
