The 2024 British Open Masters Squash Championships will take place alongside the PSA World Tour Platinum-level British Open in Birmingham next year between June 4-9.
The bulk of the action will be held at the Solihull Arden Club, with matches from the earlier rounds also due to be played at the West Warwickshire Sports Complex.
Masters events are for players aged 35 and over and cater for both male and female entrants, beginning with the over-35 tournament all the way up to the over-80 event.
The British Open Masters Squash Championships is the oldest and most established tournament in masters squash and is widely considered to be one of the two most prestigious tournaments, alongside the World Masters.
It is anticipated that over 350 masters players will compete across the age categories. The event will become the latest top-class squash event to be held in the Birmingham region following on from the British Junior Open, which will be held in the city between January 3-7, 2024, and the British Open PSA event, which will be held at The Rep Theatre and Edgbaston Priory Club between June 2-9, 2024.
“We are delighted to see the British Open Squash Masters run alongside the Platinum-level British Open in a week that will see world-class squash light up the Birmingham region once again,” said PSA Chief Executive Alex Gough.
“Birmingham is fast becoming one of the premier destinations for squash in the United Kingdom. The addition of the British Open Masters to the programme alongside our PSA Tour event – as well as the British Junior Open taking place in the city next month – means that the region will have hosted the very best the squash world has to offer across all age categories.
“I’d like to wish all competitors the best of luck and look forward to watching the action unfold next June.”
England Squash Masters Chairman Stuart Hardy said: “The British Open is the most iconic tournament in world squash and many legends of the game have also been British Open Masters champions. England Squash Masters is delighted to work with the PSA and again run the Masters event alongside the professionals.”
The Masters event will be organised by England Squash Masters in conjunction with the PSA and further information on entries, draws and schedules will be available at www.englandsquashmasters.co.uk
