Laurens Jan Anjema will become the new global ambassador of Harrow after signing a three year deal with the fast growing squash brand based in the United States.
The thirty-one year old from The Hague used his new racket, the Harrow Stealth, for the first time during the Dutch Squash Championships 2014 in Amsterdam, in which he justified his seeding by winning his ninth consecutive national squash title by beating fellow Harrow player Piedro Schweertman in four games in the final.
“I am very excited to be part of the Harrow team”, said the world number sixteen.
“The first time I put the Harrow Stealth in my hands, I immediately had a great feeling. Good equipment is crucial for any professional athlete and it feels awesome to know that I don’t have to worry about this for the next couple of years”, added the Dutch ace.
Harrow is obviously very upbeat about the signing of the best Dutch squash player ever:
“We are ecstatic to have a player of LJ’s ability and global appeal on board. He has been a top player and a worldwide favorite on the PSA Tour for years and we are confident he will continue to stay at the top of his game as he plays his way back into the top ten of the PSA World Rankings.
“We continue to innovate with new products and LJ will be at the forefront of this development as we eagerly work to expand our brand around the world”, said Dave Rosen, Vice President of Racquet Sports at Harrow.
An element within the partnership of Harrow and Anjema is the production of a new LJ Anjema signature racket which will be released later this year. More details about the launch of this racket will be announced in due course.
