Top seed Sarah-Jane Perry pulls out of AJ Bell British National Championships

Top seed and former British National Champion Sarah-Jane Perry has withdrawn from next week’s AJ Bell British National Squash Championships following a long-standing injury.

Perry's withdrawal means Laura Massaro becomes top seed with Alison Waters moving to number two seed, setting up the prospect of a mouth-watering final between the four-time champions.

“Whilst my recovery is going well, it was always going to be tight on time to be match fit,” said Sarah-Jane. “Unfortunately, I’m not quite where I would want to be so won’t be able to play. However, I am expecting to be fit for the World Champs onwards and look forward to being back next year.”
