A sports scholar at Roehampton, Yathreb studies Business Management as part of Sport Roehampton’s elite programme.

Sport Roehampton organises sport and physical activity programmes for students, staff and the community. It has a track record of assisting elite student athletes to reach their potential and is currently home to a number of international standard student athletes like Yathreb. 

Ranking among the top 75 in the world, she has been going from strength to strength after winning a place in the US Open quarter finals in October. She is coached by Sport Roehampton’s Ian Robinson who says, “Yathreb has been able to juggle a busy training schedule with her studies the past few months and her hard work and dedication is really paying off. We work with a lot of sportsmen and women here who are at the top of their game. If you are one, Roehampton can support you to claim a great degree and continue to perform at the top of your sport.”

Yathreb plans to play in the Women’s World Championships this month in her hometown, Cairo, before more international tournaments and the BUCS individual Championships in the New Year. This is all alongside her three year Business Management degree which gives students a solid grounding in key business skills covering modules from Marketing, Accounting and Economics to Business Law and Ethics.

She says, “I’m absolutely thrilled to win the London Open and would like to thank Sport Roehampton for their endless support.”
