PSA Announce Tour Suspension Extended Until Mid-August Due to COVID-19

The Professional Squash Association (PSA) can confirm that the suspension of the PSA Tour following the global COVID-19 pandemic has been extended and all World Tour, Challenger Tour and WSF & PSA Satellite Tour events originally planned to take place in July and at the start of August have been postponed.

The PSA Tour has been on hold since March 13, and following regular communication with tournament organisers and players, and with the health and safety of all players, promoters, fans and tournament staff in mind, the decision has been made to extend the suspension until mid-August.

The suspension will be extended until August 16 and the PSA will continue to review the situation over the coming weeks.

The following is a list of affected tournaments:
Victoria Open in Melbourne, Australia
HCL SRFI Indian Tour - Noida Leg in Greater Noida, India
City of Greater Shepparton International in Shepparton, Australia
Kingston City Council Squash Melbourne Open in Melbourne, Australia

"There are a number of uncertainties surrounding international travel, social distancing guidelines and potential quarantine measures for players and staff travelling internationally, which means that resuming the tour in the next six to eight weeks isn't feasible at present," said PSA Tour Director Hannah Ridgard-Mason.

"This is a difficult, but necessary, decision and we are naturally disappointed that we are not yet in a position to resume the PSA Tour following this global pandemic.

"However, the health and safety of all of our players and everyone involved in running an event is paramount. We continue to explore all available options as we look to outline a roadmap for the return of professional squash."
