Celebrity-Am Doubles Squash Tournament!

Click here and leave your details to enter the Celebrity-Am Tournament

Away from the serious business of the professional tournament, one of the highlights of this year's Brit Insurance Super Series Finals will be a Celebrity-Am doubles tournament to raise funds for the The Lords Taverners.
 
The event will take place on the tournament court on the Thursday and Friday of tournament week and the list of confirmed celebrities is growing by the week.

Amongst those already confirmed include former England cricketers Alec Stewart, Mike Gatting and Graeme Hick, Great Britain rugby league legend Ellery Hanley, TV presenter Jamie Theakston and British Olympic table tennis star, Matthew Syed.

Sponsors Brit Insurance are offering eight amateur squash fans the chance to pair up with a celebrity partner and take part in this unique doubles competition on the all-glass tournament court at the Broadgate Arena.

Qualifying events will take place at the Lambs Health and Fitness club (1 Lambs passage, Chiswell St, London EC1) on the 25th and 27th April (from 5.00pm).
 
All amateurs are welcome.  Both qualifying events will take the form of a singles knock-out competition with four players going through each night to the Semi-Finals of the celebrity-am doubles at the Broadgate Arena on Thursday 12th May. The winners will contest the final in front of a packed crowd at Broadgate Arena on Friday 13th May, providing curtain raiser to the final of the Brit Insurance Super Series Finals.
 
Entry is open to all and there is no registration fee.  However, a donation to the Lord's Taverners, the tournaments official charity, would be gratefully appreciated!
 
Anybody interested in participating in either of the qualifying events should email the Tournament Manager, Harry Owen on
harry.owen@wsmsport.com for more information.
