PSA Statement: Alexandria International Squash Open

The Professional Squash Association (PSA) regrets to announce that the Alexandria International Squash Open - which had been postponed from September to November - has been cancelled due to funding instability.

The PSA has been in close contact with the tournament organisers, the Egyptian Squash Federation and other key stakeholders in recent weeks, with all parties committed to making the tournament happen.

However, the difficulty in securing the commitment from a title sponsor, in addition to the deadline for entries fast approaching, meant that the PSA had to accept the decision from the tournament organisers to cancel the tournament and remove it from the PSA Tour calendar.

"We have worked closely with the organising team and other key stakeholders over the past few weeks to try and find a resolution but unfortunately we have been unable to resolve the issue," said PSA Chief Executive Alex Gough.

"While it is extremely disappointing to lose what was going to be a brand new tournament, we are excited for the remainder of the season, with the world's best players appearing at some spectacular locations in what remains a packed calendar on the PSA Tour."
