WSA sanctioned events take place all around the world. Melbourne, Mexico City and Monte Carlo, Doha, Dublin, and Dallas, Shanghai and Singapore, Hong Kong, New York, Cairo, Kuala Lumpur... these and many more cities and countries host women's international squash tournaments.
The WSA World Tour is a well managed expanding programme that lends itself superbly to the demands of promoters, venues, spectators, sponsors, and the media.
WSA members gain points by competing in sanctioned events. It is from this accumulation that world rankings are produced, so the twin incentives of money and points drive players to enter. Every time they compete, their ranking is on the line, so all competitions are taken very seriously indeed.
WSA simply has one World Tour, all the events being an integral part.
Each event, whatever the prize fund, will be entitled to use the ''WSA WORLD TOUR'' stamp on its literature, secure in the knowledge that WSA will construct a cohesive international calendar that works for promoters and players alike.
Events are the lifeblood for players - so WSA backs its sponsors and promoters.
