Wolverhampton Lawn Tennis & Squash Club bring in Jenkins ahead of Winter League
Wolverhampton Lawn Tennis & Squash Club have entered the transfer market to bring in a squash professional to boost their Warwickshire League campaign, writes Paul Berry.
Miles Jenkins, who is just outside the world’s top 200 in the Professional Squash Association rankings, has been snapped up for the Winter League season and has already helped the team make a promising start.
His early-season form has also seen him reach the quarter-finals of the Texas Open, before returning to help WLTSC win three of their first four fixtures of the Division One campaign.
“It’s quite a difference to follow up a trip to Texas with a game in Wolverhampton, but it seems like a great club and I’ve had a really nice welcome,” said 24-year-old Jenkins.
“Everyone here is very keen to promote squash, and we are looking forward to hopefully enjoying a successful season.
“It’s been a reasonable start, and maybe we can try and push for a top three position whilst making sure we can keep well away from relegation.”
Sponsorship support from long-serving WLTSC members Ash Labib (AL Aesthetics) and Roy Cashmore (Viking Electrics), and Karl Becker who has played for the club, has paved the way for the signing of Jenkins, as WLTSC try and spread the word of the benefits to health fitness of sports such as squash and racketball.
