Equal Pay On Show As World No.1s Lead Squash Back To Great Pyramid Of Giza

The Great Pyramid of Giza – one of the seven wonders of the world – will provide the backdrop to a five-day squash extravaganza this September that will see Egyptian World No.1s Mohamed ElShorbagy and Nour El Sherbini lead a star-studded field at the 2016 Al Ahram International – the iconic tournament which returns to the PSA World Tour calendar for the first time since 2006.

Taking place in an open-air court in front of the Pyramids from September 19-23, the Al Ahram International will see players competing for a share of the $200k prize fund which will be split evenly across the Men's and Women's draws – the first time a major tournament in Egypt has offered parity in prize money.

Having dominated the Men's Tour in 2015/16, claiming an unprecedented six of seven World Series titles, ElShorbagy will be firm favourite to claim the men's crown while fellow Alexandrian El Sherbini, the 20-year-old World Champion and British Open Champion, is odds-on to deliver double home success.
