Bryant and Haworth top English Junior Championships draws

England's Jonah Bryant and Amelie Haworth headline the 2024 English Junior Championships draws.
The draws for the 2024 English Junior Championships (EJC), which takes place in London from 9-11 February, have been released, with 2023 British Junior champions Jonah Bryant and Amelie Haworth headlining the boys and girls under 19 categories respectively.

Seven-time EJC champion Bryant (Sussex) will be looking to retain his BU19 crown and is seeded to face [3/4] Yusuf Sheikh (Essex) in the semis, before a potential final showdown with [2] Abd-Allah Eissa (Warks).

Also fighting for national glory are current England No.1 Bailey Malik and twin brother Heston Malik (Sussex), plus four-time EJC champion [5/8] Alex Broadbridge (Hants).

In the women’s GU19 draw, four-time EJC winner [1] Amelie Haworth (Hants) will be looking to better her third-place play-off finish last year.

Haworth, who made her PSA Challenger Tour debut this season, is seeded to meet [2] Mariam Eissa (Warks) in a repeat of October’s GU19 British Junior Championships (BJC) final in which Haworth triumphed. Standing in Haworth’s way is December’s Pontefract Gold champion [3/4] Olivia Owens (Worcs).

Also vying for a shot at the title is current England No.1 [3/4] Meha Shah (Warks) and current Chichester Silver champion [5/8] Megan Light (Hants).

Current BU15 winner Ismail Khalil (Warks) is the BU17 top seed and is expected to meet England no.1 [2] Ronnie Hickling (Surrey) in the final. Hot on their heels and looking to mount an upset are Pontefract Gold champion [3/4] Chester Dockray (Yorks) and [3/4] Harry Bloomfield (Glos).

Reigning British GU17 champion Emily Coulcher-Porter (Oxon) tops the GU17 draw and is scheduled for a semi-final clash with [3/4] Reka Kemecsei (Sussex) – the 2023 British GU15 champion. Coulcher-Porter, the current England No.1, faces a potential final showdown with second seed Elizabeth Dicker (Hants), who will first have to navigate past England No.2 [3/4] Emma Logan (Suffolk).

BU15 top seed George Griffiths (Hants) is predicted to go one better than his 2023 runner-up position. Griffiths, who reached the last eight at January’s British Junior Open, looks set to meet [2] Gabriel Chak (Surrey) in the final, who is in good form after clinching the BU15 title in December’s Pontefract Gold and finishing runner-up in October’s British Junior Championships.

In the GU15 draw, current England no.2 and Pontefract Gold champion [1] Harriet Broadbridge (Hants) is set to face off against England no.1 [3/4] Fearne Copley (Yorks) in the semis, with the winner predicted to meet second seed Ameerah Ismail (Warks) in the final.

[1] Oscar Brown (Leics) – the 2023 EJC BU11 runner-up – is predicted to contest the BU13 title against Pontefract Gold champion [2] Alexander Koa-Wing (Middx). Brown, the current England no.1 faces a semi-final clash against [3/4] Joshua Fillmore (Cambs), whilst Koa-Wing could meet England no.2 [3/4] Euan Thomson (Surrey).

Top seed Esther Chak (Surrey) and [2] Nadiya Ismail (Warks) are expected to lock horns in the GU13 final. Standing in their way for a place in the final showpiece are 3/4 seeds Bella Gokani (Leics) – the current England no.1 - and Sophie Harding (Essex), respectively.

Current British GU11 champion [1] Siona Mishra (Warks) is in prime position to lift the EJC GU11 title. The England no.1 is scheduled for a last four encounter with Chichester Silver champion [3/4] Olivia Holbrook (Hants) before a potential final clash with Pontefract Gold runner-up [2] Freya Hennings (Surrey).

BU11 top seed Ben Lamond (Dorset) is seeded to meet [3/4] James Barker (Yorks) in the semis before a potential final match-up with England no.1 [2] Logan Willstrop (Yorks) - in what could be a repeat of the high quality 2023 BJC BU11 final in which Lamond prevailed.

Meanwhile, in the Mixed Under 9s, Warwickshire’s [1] Naishe Matamisa, who lifted the British U9 title in October, is scheduled for a final showdown with Middlesex’s [2] Gabriel Cannistraci, the current England No.1 and Pontefract Gold champion.

The championships start on Friday 9 February across five London venues – Cumberland LTC, Coolhurst Tennis and Squash Club, Southgate Squash & Racketball Club, Oakleigh Park LTSC and Finchley Manor LTSC.
