Over 450 matches, spread across 20 tournaments, will be broadcast throughout a breathtaking season of world-class squash that will see new tournaments such as the Open International de Squash de Nantes, the Al Ahram International – held in front of the stunning Great Pyramid of Giza – and the Wadi Degla Women’s Open join the SQUASHTV calendar alongside some of the world’s most prestigious tournaments including the Delaware Investments U.S. Open, both the Men’s and Women’s World Championships, the J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions and the Allam British Open.
The first live SQUASHTV tournament of the season will be the Cathay Pacific Sun Hung Kai Financial Hong Kong Open, which begins on Tuesday August 23, with nine other events, including the Wadi Degla PSA Men’s World Championship, also being broadcast before the end of 2016.
“We have worked tirelessly to improve every element of SQUASHTV over the past 12 months and are delighted to showcase our world-class sport on an even bigger scale next season,” said PSA Chief Operating Officer Lee Beachill.
