London set for stellar squash showdown« Return to News
The ATCO PSA World Series Squash Finals will make a welcome return to the home of racquet sports this January when the world’s best players head to Queen’s Club from 2nd - 6th January for the most prestigious squash event of the season.
Only the eight best performers from the World Series events on the PSA and the WSA tours will qualify for the ATCO PSA World Series Squash Finals. Winner of last year’s first ever WSA World Series Final, Nicol David of Malaysia will return to defend her title, who, along with world No.2 Raneem El Weleily of Egypt are currently the only WSA contingent to have qualified for the event. But Laura Massaro will most likely join the pair in her home country, with Annie Au, Nour El Sherbini, Jenny Duncalf, Low Wee Wern and Madeline Perry all poised to qualify.
Other top names include Joelle King, Alison Waters and Camille Serme who could all qualify for the event in the remaining two World Series events of the year. The Cathy Pacific Hong Kong Open starts at the end of November, with the year culminating in the World Open in the Cayman Islands on from the 16th of December.
The men’s player field looks set to include a host of top names including world No.1 & 2 James Willstrop and Nick Matthew, as well as former world champions Ramy Ashour and Karim Darwish.
The high-octane World Series Finals action will take place in the spectacular glass 'Z-Court', which has been designed to ensure uninterrupted 360 degree views of the action and uses the latest technology in glass construction to make the ATCO PSA World Series Squash Finals a unique experience for spectators. Sky Sports will be televising the event through its thrilling final weekend with live streaming available on Squash TV throughout the week.
