Born in Australia to an Australian/Maltese family, Bradley grew up playing many top level junior sports from rugby to surf life-saving. He found his passion and made his name as a squash champion and became one of Australia’s top juniors by under 11.
“Squash has such an appeal for me more than the other sports,
I love playing, I enjoy the challenge of competing and the test ones abilities.”
Meeting the President of Malta Dr George Abela.
February 8th 2012, I was invited to meet and have morning tea with the President of Malta Dr George Abela. It is one of the highest honours to be able to discuss sport with the President in the Maltese Presidential Palace. It is by far one of the highlights of my career to be thanked and congratulated for my achievements from a gentleman of his stature.
In 2003 after completing his studies he was guided by legendary coach Joe Shaw and made the move to Europe to take his game to a new level and continue his development in the sport.
After several years of refining his skills and ‘learning the ropes’ (which he states he is always learning something new everyday) he started to make great strides in squash.
Hindle–Deguara won many titles both European local and professional events, including the first ever Slovenian Open, where he blitzed the opponents only dropping one game on the way to lifting the historic title. In 2009 he claimed his 2nd professional tournament by winning in Holland and in March 2010 he claimed the prestigious Belgium open. In doing so he started to make a powerful name for himself amongst the professional squash community.
Bradley is one of Malta’s top athletes and in 2009 led the Malta team to victory winning gold at the Small Nation Games in the teams event and taking the gold in the individual event.
He received recognition for his commitment to Malta by being awarded Gold achievement at the 2009 Malta sports awards. Bradley competed respectively and prominently for Malta in singles and doubles events at the 2010 Commonwealth games Delhi. In recognition for his efforts, performances and results he has been awarded the Gold recognition award 2 years running by the Malta Olympic Committee. Something Bradley treasures highly in his trophy cabinet.
“Bradley is one of the best I’ve worked with,
his dedication and professional attitude is and eye for the game something unique.”
Head coach Harvard & coach of former world champion Johnathon Power
In June 2011 at the GSSE games in Lichtenstein, the spot light shone on Bradley as he was given the honour of holding the Maltese flag at the opening ceremony, a honour remembered as one of his proudest sporting memories. More information can be read here.
He followed it with ‘flawless’ performances by not dropping even a single set in eight matches and in return winning two gold medals. His first gold medal coming in the teams event with Bradley describing the team as ‘The best team performance he had the honour of being involved with,’ and then winning his second gold in the individual event. Hindle-Deguara’s efforts was recognised by Malta’s Olympic Committee, Malta Squash and described as a ‘Great ambassador to the sport.’
Bradley has become a prolific Commonwealth games competitor, competing at the 2010 (Delhi India) and 2014 games (Glasgow Scotland), due to his commitment and dedication to the team Malta has become a world team to reckoned with.
