Georgina Kennedy

Squash

Georgina Kennedy has rocketed up the world rankings rankings, going from 185th in the world to a top ten player in just nine months.

The Londoner’s progress means she is now in a great position with a home Commonwealth medal is a realistic aim.

Kennedy hails from the same suburb of Bromley as tennis star Emma Raducanu and will be hoping to match the meteoric rise of her fellow racquet sports prodigy. The two even play at the same club and share a physio.

Kennedy’s athletic ability isn’t confined to squash. She also ran for the Blackheath and Bromley Harriers club that reared Dina Asher-Smith as well as playing tennis herself when she was younger.

She made her World Tour debut in 2021 having taken four years out to major in psychology at Harvard University. On her return to the sport, she won seven of her first nine tournaments.
