Jennifer Duncalf (born 10 November 1982) is an English professional squash player. She reached a career-high world ranking of World No. 2 in December 2009.

Duncalf was born in Haarlem, Netherlands. As a junior player, she won the European Junior Championship title. Duncalf won the European Individual Championship title in 2006 and 2007, and the British National Championship title in 2007 and 2009. She was also a member of the England team which won the World Team Squash Championships in 2006. In 2008, she finished runner-up at the British Open (losing in the final to Nicol David). Duncalf ends the year 2009 on a high when she won three titles in a row—the Soho Square Open, the US Open and the prestigious Qatar Classic.[1]

Duncalf was a pupil at Harrogate Grammar School where she attended from 1994-2001.[2] Duncalf made an appearance on the BBC2 quiz show Eggheads along with four other top-ranked British players, but they were unable to beat the show.[citation needed]
