Simon Skelton

Profile

photo_54012b1c3f37da27387839e9d582a577Simons father brought him into the sport at the age of ten and they proved their partnership winning the National Father & Son Championship for several years consistently.

Nottinghamshire based Simon Skelton fought his way into the top 16 back in 2007-8 and remained in the top 16 for several years. Following a couple of years of disastrous results Simon dropped out of the top 16 but remained determined to claw his way back in through the PBA Qualifiers and this year sees his reward as he regains a coveted top 16 place for 2019-20 season.

An aggressive player on the circuit Simon will be bringing all his skill set to claw his way back to the top and he will be one to watch this season.
