|Tom Richards Profile|
|Date of Birth||10th July, 1986|
|Coach||Chris Robertson, Robbie Temple, Steve Meads|
Tom Richards has gone on to represent England at the highest level since his decision to turn professional at 18-years-old.
Guildford-born Richards captured his first PSA World Tour title at the Hithercroft Squash Club tournament in 2008 and went on to add the Kish Persian Cup and Seegarten Vitis Open the year after.
He won his first PSA M35 title at the 2012 Open De Squash Banque Nationale Groupe Financier after a fantastic tournament in which he eliminated number one seed Hisham Mohd Ashour and defeated former World Champion Thierry Lincou in the final. He was rewarded by breaking into the World’s top 15 the following month.
The Englishman failed to win a PSA World Tour title in 2013 or 2014 but came close on several occasions, most notably the 36th Indian Summer Benefiting Beyond Walls and the Ilex Construction Charlottesville Open where he reached the semi-final at both events.
He was one step away from lifting the Andorra Open crown in April 2015 but was prevented from doing so by top seed Karim Abdel Gawad who beat him in the showpiece event.
After a few mixed months, Richards then reached the latter stages of the St George’s Hill Open in October 2015 but was felled in the last four by eventual winner Chris Simpson.
