It’s England versus Wales in both finals of the British National Championships 2023 this afternoon, with two exciting deciders coming up at St. George’s Hill.
Reigning champions Jasmine Hutton and Mohamed ElShorbagy face Tesni Evans and Joel Makin, respectively, this afternoon with the action getting underway from 16:00 (BST) live on SQUASHTV.
The women’s final is up first in Weybridge, as defending champion Hutton meets two-time winner Evans.
Hutton, who defeated Lucy Beecroft last year to clinch her maiden Nationals title, is appearing in her third final in this competition. The 24-year-old overcame England No.1 Gina Kennedy 3-1 last night to book her place in this afternoon’s decider.
Meanwhile Evans – who triumphed at this event in 2018 and 2019 – came out on top in a tough, five-game encounter with three-time champion Sarah-Jane Perry in the semi-finals, which concluded after 74 minutes.
The men’s final is a repeat of last year’s decider as ElShorbagy and Makin lock horns for the 2023 crown.
Like Hutton, ElShorbagy will be bidding to retain his title after seeing off Makin 3-0 in 2022, and the World No.3 has been in excellent form this time round having not dropped a game so far.
Makin also boasts a 100 per cent record going into today’s final, with the Welsh No.1 dispatching Perry Malik, Joe Lee and Adrian Waller on route to the decider.
