PSA Awards to be Decided in June

The annual PSA Awards will be decided in June with a number of prestigious honours – such as the male and female Player of the Year awards – up for grabs.

The PSA Awards are traditionally held on the eve of the season-ending PSA World Tour Finals, which has been postponed following the suspension of the PSA Tour due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

While the PSA are exploring all available options in order to restart the PSA Tour, it has been decided to hold this year’s awards in June once again in order to celebrate the achievements and performances of the world’s top squash players over the past season.

Voting Procedure

Voting comprises a two-part process, combining the votes made by squash fans on social media with the votes made by the PSA Awards Committee – a group consisting of selected influential former players, members of the media, tournament promoters and PSA Board representatives.

This then determines the winners of the four biggest annual awards; Female Player of the Year, Male Player of the Year, Young Female Player of the Year and Young Male Player of the Year

The players with the most cumulative points are the winners.

The shortlists for each award will be revealed over the course of this week, at which point public voting on each award will commence, starting with the Men’s Player of the Year later today.

The public vote for each award will close at 23:30 (GMT+1) on Sunday June 7, before the awards will be announced via a PSA Awards show on the PSA World Tour Facebook page on Monday June 15 at 19:00 (GMT+1).
