Alex Haydon (squash) was the youngest player on Australia’s squash team at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham where she and fellow Games debutant Jess Turnbull lost in the round of 16 in the women’s doubles. Alex and Jess then won the Plate final. Born in South Australia’s Clare Valley, Alex started playing squash because her parents had the whole family involved. She won her first Junior National Championship age title in 2013, then made her first Australian team less than a year later at the Oceania Junior Championships and Trans-Tasman Test Series, aged 12. Alex was a seven times Australian national junior champion (2013-2019) and has represented Australia at the World Women’s Team Championships, World Doubles, 2018 Youth Olympics in Argentina, 2015 Commonwealth Youth Games in Samoa and four World Junior Championships. She moved to train at the National Squash Centre on the Gold Coast after finishing high school in 2019, working with National Head Coach Stewart Boswell. Alex claimed bronze with Zac Alexander in the mixed event at the World Doubles Championships on the Gold Coast in 2019. She made a blistering start to 2022, teaming up with Rachael Grinham to win the women’s event at the Australian Open Doubles, and two weeks later claimed the singles title at the Gold Coast Open PSA. She also featured on Australia’s squad for the 2022 WSF World Doubles Championships in Glasgow, Scotland, where she also played alongside Jess Turnbull.
