Denver, CO—May 14, 2015
Harrow Sports is pleased to introduce the newest addition to its Elite Team, Amanda Sobhy. One of the most decorated players in US Squash history, Sobhy signed with Harrow after finishing her college career at Harvard, with four individual national championships to her name.
Sobhy began her international career with a splash, becoming the only player under the age of 17 to win three major Women’s Squash Association (WSA) titles. The 2010 World Junior Women’s Champion, Amanda continues to dazzle the squash community and make history. Not only is she the only American squash player to reach the quarterfinals in the Tournament of Champions, but Amanda also took home gold at her first official event as a professional in the Texas Open last month. She is currently ranked at #10 in the world, showing obvious promise to climb the rankings.
“We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Amanda to the Harrow Family,” states Mark Hayden, Harrow Sports CEO. “She is a stellar competitor and we couldn’t be more excited to have a player of her caliber join us.”
“Amanda is one of the smartest and hardest working people I have met in the squash community and I am personally gratified that she has chosen to work with Harrow”, added Dave Rosen, Harrow Vice President of Racquet Sports. “I’ve come to know Amanda and her family very well over her unparalleled career as a junior and collegiate player and look forward to working with Amanda as she continues to establish herself as an internationally renowned squash professional.”
After inking her name on the dotted line, Sobhy commented “”I am really excited to be a part of Team Harrow. Signing with Harrow was an obvious choice for me as they continue to grow into one of the worldwide leaders in squash. Their support of the squash community, dedication to delivering the best possible products and their personalized service truly sets them apart from the competition. I am happy to be representing Harrow as I begin my professional career and am looking forward to working with this great company for years to come.”
