The American city of Bellevue, Washington has been announced as the host for the 2015 PSA World Squash Championship, the pinnacle event in the squash calendar.
A major suburb of Seattle, Bellevue will become the first American destination ever to host the sport’s most prestigious competition as 112 of the world’s best squash players converge on the Bellevue Pro Sports Club to battle it out for the right to win the $350,000 tournament and be crowned World Champion. Bellevue will become the 24th city to host the tournament, only the third in North America after Toronto, Canada and Hamilton, Bermuda, in what will be the 37th staging of the week-long squash spectacular.
“We are delighted to confirm that the 2015 PSA World Squash Championship will take place in Bellevue and to welcome the city on-board as the latest world class destination to become associated with professional squash,” said PSA CEO Alex Gough. “The World Championship is the most prestigious title in squash and to be taking the sport’s pinnacle event to an American audience for the first time in history is tremendously exciting for everyone involved.”
2015 PSA World Squash Championship tournament organiser Shabana Khan, Founder and CEO of YSKevents, said: “We are very excited to be bringing the World Championship to the USA for the very first time and feel certain that Bellevue, Washington will prove to be a fitting venue for such a prestigious competition. “We already enjoy a strong working relationship with the PSA and look forward to building yet further on that over the next year ahead of the 2015 World Squash Championship.”
The 2015 World Squash Championship will take place in Bellevue, Washington in November 2015. The week-long event will take place at the city’s Pro Sports Club. Exact tournament dates will be confirmed at a later date.
