Alison Waters claimed the British National squash title after defeating Irish challenger Madeline Perry in the final of the competition.

The 29-year-old from Enfield, who is ranked fourth in the world, was competing in her eighth National Championships final after overcoming Yorkshire’s Jenny Duncalf in the last four.

She clinched the first game 11-3 and Perry struggled to recover as Waters stamped her authority on the match.

She went on to secure an 11-6 victory in the second game and maintained her dominance to win the title with another 11-6 win.

Waters, who started playing squash at the age of five at Southgate Squash Club, said: “I’m so pleased. I’ve had plenty of tough battles against Madders in the past so I was ready from the start.

“I just played my game and was confident going into it. I’m so excited to have won a fourth title. “Big respect to Madeline, I know how long she’s wanted to get a National final, she’s 37-years-old and if I’m still playing as well as she is at 37 then I’ll be delighted.”
