SQUASH TOURNAMENTS NOW SUSPENDED UNTIL MID-AUGUST DUE TO COVID-19

The PSA has confirmed that the suspension of Professional Squash Tournaments because of COVID-19 has been extended and all World Tour, Challenger Tour and WSF & PSA Satellite Tour events originally planned to take place in July and at the start of August have been postponed.

The PSA Tour has been on hold since March 13 and will continue until at least August 16

The following is a list of affected tournaments:

  1. Victoria Open in Melbourne, Australia

2. HCL SRFI Indian Tour – Noida Leg in Greater Noida, India

3. City of Greater Shepparton International in Shepparton, Australia

4. Kingston City Council Squash Melbourne Open in Melbourne, Australia

“Due to uncertainties surrounding international travel, social distancing guidelines and potential quarantine measures for players and staff travelling internationally, means that resuming the tour in the next six to eight weeks isn’t feasible at present,” said PSA Tour Director (probably from a pub somewhere! Maybe the ‘Fox and Hounds’ in West Yorkshire!!)

“This is a difficult, but necessary, decision and we are naturally disappointed that we are not yet in a position to resume the PSA Tour following this global pandemic.

“However, the health and safety of all of our players and everyone involved in running an event is paramount. We continue to explore all available options as we look to outline a roadmap for the return of professional squash.”
