MY JOURNEY

As a young girl, Milou’s passion was dancing, but with her family owning two squash clubs and her dad a former national coach in the Netherlands, it was almost inevitable that she would catch the squash bug. After playing her first tournament at the age of 12 Milou was hooked and soon after she decided to quit dancing and dedicate all her time to her new passion.

It wasn’t until after Milou had finished her high school (VWO level) that she turned fulltime professional, capturing her first PSA title half way across the world in Alice Springs in 2012, before racking up further tournament wins on the PSA World Tour in Perth (2014), Malaka (2015), Sydney (2015), Paris (2016) and Jersey (2017).

Having represented the Netherlands at major championships in every age category, Milou has continued to represent her country at senior level, where at the 2016 European Team Championships she challenged two top-10 ranked players, taking games from Camille Serme and Sarah Jane Perry, before defeating a higher ranked player in a crucial match to capture a bronze medal for the Dutch team.

She continued her good form into the World Team Championships later that year, beating former World number 1 Rachael Grinham, and in 2017 represented the Netherlands in the quadrennial World Games where she only narrowly lost to the eventual Silver medallist.

As the highest ranked Dutch Player (WR 41) and two-time National Champion, Milou is on course to reach her goals and set to continue her journey to become the best player she can be!
