The 2023 ProAir British Junior Championships have come to an exciting close. While we celebrate the new champions—like Jonah Bryant in the Boys Under 19 and Amelie Haworth in the Girls Under 19—it’s also crucial to highlight the star performers based on their level improvements. Let’s dig in with this SquashLevels Report.

Jonah Bryant (Sussex) lifted the Boys Under 19 Don Sanderson trophy after defeating Abd-Allah Eissa (Warks) in straight games. Similarly, Amelie Haworth (Hants) secured her fourth BJC title with a straight games win over 14-year-old Mariam Eissa (Warks).
