Julian Tomlinson

Written by James Fletcher - Onside PR


Julian Tomlinson is a young squash professional tipped for stardom.

The talented athlete is just starting out in his career and Onside founder James Fletcher believes he has all the sporting pedigree to make it in a very tough sport.
Tomlinson is the newly appointed pro at David Lloyd Bolton and is already making headlines in the North West – having now secured the Lancashire Junior Closed two years running.

Tomlinson is the current the North West U19 Championship and the North West Colleges title holder.

Julian made his debut in January in the British Junior Open last January and the Senior British National Squash Championships, hosted at the National Squash Centre in Manchester.

Julian, said; “It’s a difficult task to make the step up from junior squash to competing on the professional circuit but that is my goal and I am totally committed to breaking through the ranks.

“I have great support from my family friends and terrific sponsors Titan Sports who provide my rackets and bags and Compton Place Shopping Centre. This is the beginning of what I hope will be an exciting career in a really tough sport.”

Julian has been playing in the North West Counties Men’s league since the age of 14 and boasts a proud unbeaten record at the age of 15 during the 2008 season.

The young British hope is backed by Titan Sports and Crompton Place Shopping Centre and is coaching future talent at David Lloyd Bolton.

Despite his numerous titles and awards Julian has no doubt of his greatest achievement; beating his father John in a North West Counties Squash League clash when he was 8-nil down in the fifth!


Onside set out to raise Julian’s profile, establishing Twitter and Facebook sites and managing his interaction with sponsors, the media and supporters.

It is crucial for any sportsperson, but particular one beginning their career to show sponsors that they are getting far more for their backing than success on the field – or court in Julian’s case – and they are buying into a personality.

Already sponsors Crompton Place and Titan Sports have reaped the benefit of Julian’s recommendations and his reputation is spreading across the internet.


Julian is working tirelessly on the court to improve his performances and maybe needed that extra edge – by now making him think about his life beyond the court, namely his blogging and internet responsibilities it has helped him to focus even more on his game.

He narrowly missed out recently on qualification to the men’s British Open, losing to the eventual winner of the Qualification group but is now climbing in the English rankings and tipped for great things.
