Kuwait Mens World Open Squash Championships 2009

Post by Mark

Since we don’t get that many world class sport events here in Kuwait I would think an event like this deserves a bit more publicity…

The Kuwait Men’s World Open will be staged from the 1st to 7th November 2009 and will boast a record prize fund of US$277,500.

The championship is the climax of a three year agreement with the Professional Squash Association (PSA) which has already seen the successful staging of Super Series Platinum events in 2007 and 2008.

As well as offering the largest prize money of any World Open, the championship will also include spectacular opening and closing ceremonies as well as an Official Championship Gala Dinner.

The championships will bring together all of the world’s leading players from the PSA World Tour. World No.1 Karim Darwish of Egypt will head a star-studded field including compatriots Ramy Ashour and Amr Shabana, Gregory Gaultier and Thierry Lincou from France, Australia’s former World Open Champion David Palmer and England’s British Champion Nick Matthew.

The quarter-finals, semi finals and finals will be played on a dedicated court being built on Green Island which sounds cool considering the weather is great at the moment. For more information visit the official website [Here]

Thanks Akbar!

    Banners/posters should be all over Kuwait for this event. I hope it’s successful and becomes regular. I’m not a fan of squash but this is a nice event to be held here.

    I love squash and used to train abroad. Wish there was fairly-priced squash training in Kuwait…

    It’s truly amazing…one of the greatest sporting events being held here in Kuwait with the best 64 players in the world competing for the title. Today’s the 2nd day of the tournament and unfortunately, the crowd so far has been extremely disappointing, some local club tournaments have better attendance than this. It should’ve been advertised much much more, maybe via mobile phone companies.
