PSA and International Play

Naughton’s first taste of PSA success was realized in 2014 winning the 2014 ORC Open. Since then she has claimed the 2016 Nicola Wealth Open in Vancouver. Lately, she has been knocking on the door to the elite international World Series events, claiming main draw berths in the 2017 World Championships, 2017 Netsuite Open, 2017 Hong Kong Open and the 2017 US Open. If you have a SquashTV subscription, watching her play Raneem El Welily in the first found of the 2017 US Open is well worth your while. Naughton ends up taking the world champion to 9-11 in game 5 all while having one of her best friends on tour Amanda Sohby cheering on in the announcer’s booth.

Representing Canada, Hollie captured the 2013 Pan American Junior gold medal and a silver medal in the 2015 Pan Am games.

The powerful left-hander plays with a Salming racquet on tour and has worked extensively with David Palmer on her game.
