British Open U13 2012 Sheffield

On the 2nd January 2012 Muqaddam Khan represented Luton and Dunstable Squash club in the U13 British Squash Open in Sheffield. Muqaddam moved to Luton from Pakistan in 2010 and has since received support for his obvious squash talent from both his school (Foxdell Junior School) and Luton and Dunstable Squash Club. This support lead to him gaining entry into one of the most prestigious junior tournaments around with the best 64 players in the World competing.

Muqaddam has just turned 11 so was very young in the u13 age group category and his first opponent was over a year and a half older than
Muqaddam and seeded to reach the later stages of the competition. As expected he was too strong and Muqaddam lost 3-0 but gave him a few
scares along the way and showed plenty of fight. He had 5 more matches in the tournament and managed to win 2 of them 3-1 and only just lost out 3-2 in another.

The eventual winner of the U13 category was the Egyptian Ziad Sakr but Muqaddam will be back next year and will be hoping to mount a serious
challenge. County captain and Luton and Dunstable coach Steve Davies said "He can be very proud of his efforts throughout the week in Sheffield. Knowing Muqaddam he will probably be a little disappointed with a final finishing position of 52nd but at his age it is all about learning and improving and he certainly showed he has the determination to do just that. Next year he has every chance of competing with the top players in this tournament."
