Top seed Marwan ElShorbagy

Wimbledon Club Squash Squared Open Main Draw Released

The main draw for next month’s Wimbledon Club Squash Squared Open has been released with Egypt’s World No.11 Marwan ElShorbagy seeded to meet compatriot Omar Mosaad in the final of the PSA World Tour Bronze tournament, when the event takes place between May 11-16.

This year’s tournament, which takes place at the Wimbledon Club in London, will be the fourth instalment of the event and the largest to date, with a prize purse of $50,000 on offer.

ElShorbagy is seeded on the same side of the draw as the likes of France’s former World No.6 and defending champion Mathieu Castagnet and Mexico’s Cesar Salazar.

The Bristol-based Egyptian is also seeded to meet England’s No.1 Declan James in the semi-finals in what will be their first meeting since the Englishman claimed a shock win over ElShorbagy in the second round of March's Canary Wharf Classic.

ElShorbagy, along with the other top eight seeds, receives a bye into the second round and will face either Pakistan’s Asim Khan or Egypt’s Fares Dessouky for a place in the last 16.

At the opposite end of the draw, former World No.3 Mosaad is seeded to meet England’s former World No.1 James Willstrop in the semi-finals, but will first have to navigate through a draw which includes the likes of Willstrop’s compatriots Tom Richards and Daryl Selby.

English pair Jordan Warne and Tom Walsh occupy the wildcard spots and will face Egypt’s Mostafa Asal and France’s Lucas Serme, respectively, in round one.

The event is a significant fundraiser for Squash Squared, which is a UK registered squash and education charity supporting disadvantaged students for academic and sporting success. Tickets can be purchased via the tournament website and prices start from £20 for adults and £10 for juniors.
