Entries open for 2024 ProAir British Junior Championships

Entries are now open for the 2024 ProAir British Junior Championships (BJC), which returns to Sheffield for its historic 50th year anniversary from 31 October – 3 November.

The cream of British and Irish junior squash talent will battle it out across three Sheffield venues in 12 age categories as they bid to secure the coveted titles that have kickstarted the careers of some of the game’s biggest stars.

Since the championship’s inception in 1974, stars including Commonwealth Games gold medallists Gina Kennedy, Nick Matthew and current England captain Adrian Waller have lifted the iconic trophies.

New for this year are separate girls and boys under 9 categories. This expansion will accommodate an increase in entries within the age group and will provide further competitive playing opportunities for our youngest players.

Commenting on the championships, Tournament Organiser, Tim Vail said:

“We’re excited to open entries for this year’s ProAir British Junior Championships.

“The BJC is one of the highlights of the junior competitions calendar and is always a privilege to be involved with, but this year will be extra special as we celebrate 50 years of the tournament.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming the best players from across the UK and Ireland to Sheffield and I’m sure this year’s event will be yet another great spectacle.”

England Squash CEO Mark Williams said:

“We’re looking forward to returning to Sheffield for the ProAir British Junior Championships this October, as we celebrate 50 years of this historic competition.

“Many of the UK’s greatest players have lifted titles at the event over the years and the BJC is always a key milestone for many junior players’ future careers.

“Year after year, the squash on show is of an excellent standard and a joy to watch, and I’m sure this year will be no different.”

Supported by title sponsor ProAir, the event will be staged at Abbeydale Squash and Fitness Club, Hallamshire Squash Club and Fulwood Squash and Racketball Club.
