Kasey Brown, the President of the Women’s Squash Association (WSA), has decided to retire from the WSA World Tour after competing in next week’s Delaware Investments US Open in Philadelphia. 

Brown will continue to serve on the WSA Board until the end of her term of office.

A WSA member for the past 12 years, 29-year-old Brown reached 24 Tour finals and collected 11 titles including the Australian Open. Her biggest success came at the Greenwich Open in the USA in January 2011. Nine months later, she reached the US Open final for the first time and went on to achieve a career-high world No5 ranking in December 2011.

Brown said: “It is very much an honour to serve as President of the WSA and huge thanks must go to Tommy Berden, Elliot Selbyand the WSA Board for all of their hard work. I know the Women’s Tour is in good hands.”

WSA CEO Tommy Berden said: “Retirement decisions are never easy, even more so for such a determined and competitive professional as Kasey. She has been highly successful on the WSA World Tour for many years and has recently also shown her dedication and forward thinking in her new role as WSA President.”

England’s world champion Laura Massaro and fellow WSA board member added: “It’s been a privilege to have Kasey alongside me on the board. Her organisation, commitment and passion for the game have shone through over the last 10 months in her role as President. She always has the best interest of women’s squash at the forefront of her mind and I can’t thank her enough for the work she has done for WSA.”
