Dylan KALAR from BERKSHIRE is going from strengh to strength in both SQUASH & RACKETBALL and the little fella has already achieved so much in both sports including; Achieving the UK Number 1 Ranking in Squash (Under 11) - a position that is fiercely contested and is very hard to secure.

He continues to enjoy playing both sports and hopes to make it to the very highest levels in the future including representing England. Along with this, DUNLOP are now officially sponsoring all of Dylan’s rackets & equipment and the champ continues to go from strength to strength. All the while he has worked hard with his education and has also secured a spot in Grammar school and is grateful for all the time and effort his Dad has dedicated in coaching him in Squash, Racketball and even home tutoring him in the Grammar school entrance test papers over the years. He is very proud to be part of Team Kalar and is not only following in the footsteps of his elder sisters - Jasmin & Danni Kalar as current & former Grammar School students but also with their prowess in Squash (winners of over 100 trophies between them), with Jasmin now making her mark on the Professional Womens Squash tour. He loves training with them and their on court training & battles are the stuff of legends along with his monthly Racketball duels he has with his Mum (a keen afficonado in Racketball)...not to mention his determination to beat his Dad in his coaching sessions. All of this focus and hard work has paid off and now Dynamo Dylan Kalar is beginning to make his mark in all areas of his life and showing that he has the heart of a champion. Dylan is also proud to be selected to be a Sports Ambassador and as he gets older and develops himself further he is hoping to be a positive role model for everyone.      See full story...
