Cameron Pilley is one of Australia’s leading players and a popular player amongst fans of the PSA World Tour.
He attended the Australian Institute of Sport on a Squash scholarship from 2001 to 2005 and. in 2006, Pilley finished runner up in the mixed doubles event at the World Doubles Squash Championships where he partnered up with Amelia Pittock.
Pilley reached the final of the Canary Wharf classic in 2008 but he lost to James Willstrop in an intense five-game match which was instrumental to Pilley’s rise into the top twenty in the world for the first time.
The Australian claimed a gold medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in the mixed doubles event, this time partnered with Kasey Brown.
November 2010 saw Pilley impress at the Dutch Open when he defeated Laurens Jan Anjema to claim the championship title.
In 2011, Pilley broke the record for hitting a squash ball at 175 mph, beating the previous record by 3 mph set by John White. The record stood until May 2014 where he hit a ball at 176 mph to break his own record.
Three months later, Pilley picked up a Gold medal alongside David Palmer in the Commonwealth Games Doubles.
Pilley's title drought continued in the first half of 2015 as he could only muster up a pair of quarter-final places at the Motor City Open and Swedish Open.
June 2015 was a momentous month for the Australian as he married Women’s PSA World Tour player Line Hansen.
After some lacklustre performances saw him drop out of the world’s top 20, Pilley returned to form by reaching the final of a PSA World Series event for the first time in December 2015 at the Hong Kong Open.
He downed World Champion Gregory Gaultier and World No.3 Nick Matthew en-route but fell to defeat against defending champion Mohamed Elshorbagy.
Pilley’s fine displays in Hong Kong helped him qualify for the PSA Dubai World Series Finals the following May, where he became the first Australian finalist after avenging his defeat to ElShorbagy in the last four - ultimately losing to Gaultier.
