Tickets for the 2018 J.P. Morgan China Open have now gone on sale with squash fans given the opportunity to watch a number of the sport’s most recognisable players battle it out for honours at The Peninsula Shanghai between September 5-9.
Prices range between RMB 158 – RMB 2980 and tickets can be purchased from the China Open website.
Germany’s World No.5 Simon Rösner tops the men’s draw alongside the likes of British Open champion Miguel Angel Rodriguez and 2015 champion Gregory Gaultier, while the top 10 women in the world will also be in attendance, including World No.1 and defending champion Nour El Sherbini, World Champion Raneem El Welily and 2016 champion Laura Massaro.
“J.P. Morgan is pleased to become the title sponsor of the exceptional event in China again this year,” said J.P. Morgan China Chief Executive Mark Leung.
“As China continues to open up its markets, we are bringing the full force of J.P. Morgan Chase to China to support our clients, further develop the local markets and contribute to the local community. Supporting major sports events is one of our many ways of giving back to the local communities that are so critical to both J.P. Morgan and many of our clients globally.”
Both the men’s and women’s draws will be contested by 24 players, while a record prize purse of $241,000 – over a 20% increase on the 2017 edition’s prize money – will be split equally between the male and female players.
First round, second round and quarter-final matches will be split between the SECA Academy Jinqiao Center and The Peninsula Shanghai, while all semi-final and final matches will be held at The Peninsula Shanghai.
