Hi & Kia Ora!
My name is Joelle King. I’m from New Zealand and I am a professional squash player. After a number of successful tournaments, my world ranking is up to number 6 on the WISPA rankings - it feels amazing!! Thank you to everyone for your continued support!
A bit about me: I grew up surrounded by a large extended family including 2 older brothers who always made sure I had a good grasp (sometimes literally!) of sibling rivalry. From card games to backyard sport – everything was a competition to be the best!
Nothing has changed, well besides that I can now annihilate my bros on the squash court. My competitive instincts and determination to be the world’s best squash player remains.
Since 2010 I have been the New Zealand women's champion and a definite highlight was winning two medals (gold and silver) at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India.
Enjoy my website and please leave me a message, I am also on facebook and love hearing from everyone!
