Ranim Mohamed Yasser Saad El Din El Weleily (born 1 January 1989, in Alexandria, Egypt) is a professional squash player from Egypt.

Raneem followed her brother into squash at the age of six and first played for Egypt in the World Juniors 2001 in Penang, then aged ten. Two years later when the event was played in Cairo she was part of the Egyptian winning squad, and in 2004 she represented the senior team that came fourth in the World Teams in Amsterdam.

The highlight of Raneem’s junior career is when she became the world junior champion in Herentals, Belgium in 2005. Then she was voted WISPA Young Player of the Year for 2005 for the second time after winning it in 2004. Since January 2007 Raneem is being coached by Coach Cherine Adel 5 days a week in Cairo coupled with weekday time with Amir Wagih. She made it to the 2012 US open final but lost to Nicol David in four sets.

Raneem just graduated from the German School in Alexandria and between training sessions she also finds time to indulge her interests of music, jigsaw puzzles (which she buys from all over the world) and has recently became a sudoku addict.
