World class squash descends on Manchester, England this week when the Manchester Open PSA World Tour Silver tournament takes place from May 9-13 with action LIVE on SQUASHTV (Rest of World) and Eurosport Player (Europe only), as well as broadcasters around the world.
The inaugural Manchester Open will become the first standalone women’s professional squash tournament since the 2016 PSA Women's World Championships to be broadcast on live TV via a world feed when the PSA World Tour Silver tournament takes place this week.
A number of the world’s greatest female players will line up at Manchester’s National Squash Centre, with a $76,000 prize fund up for grabs. Live coverage of the entire tournament will be shown on SQUASHTV (rest of world), the PSA World Tour Facebook page (excluding Europe & Japan) and Eurosport Player (Europe only), while the semi-finals and final will also be shown live on mainstream broadcasters such as BT Sport, Fox Sports Australia, Astro and more.
Egypt’s World No.3 and this season’s PSA World Championship runner-up Nour El Tayeb headlines the draw ahead of New Zealand’s World No.5 and 2018 Commonwealth Games Gold medallist Joelle King, England’s No.1 Sarah-Jane Perry and fellow Egyptian Nouran Gohar.
England’s former World No.1 Laura Massaro, British National champion Tesni Evans and England’s former World No.3 Alison Waters all feature, while United States No.1 Amanda Sobhy and eight-time World Champion Nicol David will also be involved.
The Manchester Open is supported by Manchester City Council and follows the successful staging of the award-winning AJ Bell PSA World Championships in the city in December 2017, where equal prize money was on offer across both the men’s and women’s events for the first time in the tournament’s history.
