SUFFOLK number one Bradley Ball flew back from the USA with a handsome trophy and a very useful cheque after winning the Atlanta Squash Open in Georgia last weekend.

Ball is currently number 51 in the world, and number 13 in England and winning in the $5,000 event at Atlanta has brought a welcome boost to his points average.
