World Series Finals Returns To Queen's
The ATCO World Series Squash Finals
will return to The Queen's Club in London for
the third time next year, from 4-8 January.

as the top eight women are going to be joining with the top
eight men in the ATCO World Series Finals. We have been
playing hard all year around the world and it will be great
to come together with the men to fight for this title,
especially somewhere as well known as the Queen's Club and
where our association is now based.
"I'm very glad to be part of this event for
the first time and looking forward to a spectacular event in
