Semi-Finals: Preview & How To Watch Live

It’s semi-finals day in Weybridge as the last eight players remaining compete for a place in the final of the 2023 British National Championships at St George’s Hill.

The squash action begins at 18:00 (BST) today, with all four matches taking place on the glass court and being streamed on SQUASHTV.

In the day’s first encounter, Welsh No.2 seed and two-time British National Champion Tesni Evans faces No.3 seed and three-time champion Sarah-Jane Perry of England. While historically Perry has had the edge against Evans, the 30-year-old has had the better of Perry in recent meetings and is on a three match winning streak against the 33-year-old.

In the first men’s match it’s another Wales v England clash as 2021 champion and No.2 seed Joel Makin goes up against No.4 seed Adrian Waller. The last time the duo met at the Nationals was in the 2021 final and Waller will no doubt be out for revenge as he looks to end a five-match losing streak against the Welshman.

Up next, top seed Georgina Kennedy takes on Jasmine Hutton in the first of two all-English encounters. Though World No.8 Kennedy is a formidable opponent, No.5 seed Hutton – who upset the odds to win last year’s championship – will draw confidence from her battling comeback win against No.4 seed Emily Whitlock in yesterday’s quarter-final.

In the final match of the day, No.7 seed Charlie Lee will be hoping he can continue his magnificent run in Weybridge as he goes up against defending champion, former World No.1 and 2017 World Champion Mohamed ElShorbagy.

Lee has already pulled off one shock result this year in Weybridge, with the World No.46 upsetting No.3 seed and World No.24 Patrick Rooney in the quarter-finals. Will he stun ‘the Beast’ this evening?
