Wimbledon Club Squash Squared Open

The Wimbledon Club Squash Squared Open reaches a climax this evening with the Grand Final followed by a Presentation Dinner.  The final is at 6.45pm and tickets can be reserved by email to director@twcsquash.co.uk.

This year’s tournament is the fourth instalment of the event and the largest to date with a prize purse of $50,000 at stake.  The event is a significant fundraiser for Squash Squared, which is a UK registered squash and education charity supporting disadvantaged students for academic and sporting success.

After five days of world-class action just two players are left standing in a battle for the trophy tonight.  A wildcard match will take place at 6pm ahead of the main final from 6.45am which is followed by a champagne reception at approximately 8.15pm and with seats taken for the presentation dinner around 8.30pm.

Information on the Squash Squared Open draw via the PSA World Tour website as follows:-

wimbledon club squash squared openIn the main draw Egypt’s World No.11 Marwan ElShorbagy is seeded to meet compatriot Omar Mosaad in the final of this PSA World Tour Bronze tournament which takes place from 11-16 May.  ElShorbagy is seeded on the same side of the draw as the likes of France’s former World No.6 and defending champion Mathieu Castagnet and Mexico’s Cesar Salazar.

The Bristol-based Egyptian is also seeded to meet England’s No.1 Declan James in the semi-finals in what will be their first meeting since the Englishman claimed a shock win over ElShorbagy in the second round of March’s Canary Wharf Classic.  ElShorbagy, along with the other top eight seeds, receives a bye into the second round and will face either Pakistan’s Asim Khan or Egypt’s Fares Dessouky for a place in the last 16.

At the opposite end of the draw, former World No.3 Mosaad is seeded to meet England’s former World No.1 James Willstrop in the semi-finals, but will first have to navigate through a draw which includes the likes of Willstrop’s compatriots Tom Richards and Daryl Selby.  English pair Jordan Warne and Tom Walsh occupy the wildcard spots and will face Egypt’s Mostafa Asal and France’s Lucas Serme, respectively, in round one.

Match times are 6pm and 6.45pm.
