British Open Highlighted As Part of English Tourism Week

England No.1 Sarah-Jane Perry visited Birmingham Rep last week as the upcoming British Open was highlighted as part of English Tourism Week.

English Tourism Week shines a spotlight on the people, places, businesses, attractions and experiences which make up the region’s visitor economy sector.

The West Midlands Growth Company tourism team welcomed British Tourist Authority chairman Nick de Bois to the region to meet West Midlands Mayor Andy Street and double Birmingham 2022 medallist Sarah-Jane Perry ahead of the British Open squash tournament, which is returning to Birmingham for the first time since 2001.

The event – one of the most prestigious tournaments in professional squash – will see the world’s best players line up at Birmingham Rep and Edgbaston Priory Club between 9-16 April. It’s the latest sporting tournament to take place in Birmingham following the 2022 Commonwealth Games, adding to the portfolio of major events secured by the West Midlands.

Tickets for the British Open are on sale and available for purchase here.

Action from Birmingham Rep will be broadcast live on SQUASHTV, while the semi-finals and finals will also be shown live by PSA’s broadcast partners. Streaming details for matches held at Edgbaston Priory Club will be announced in due course.

Keep up with all the action from this year’s British Open via the official tournament website and by following the event on Twitter.
