The Sekisui Open will take place in the Sportpark Pilatus in Kriens, Switzerland from 7 to 13 March 2016. For the first time a PSA 5 women’s tournament will also take place on the same weekend as the PSA 15 men’s tournament. Eight top-100 female players as well as ten top-100 male players will participate in the professional tournament.
Top squash players from around the world will be competing against each other once again in the Sekisui Open 2016 from March 7 to 13. In previous years, the PSA tournament has been endowed with USD 10,000. But this year’s tournament will be the largest one the Professional Squash Association has ever held in Kriens and the first one at which prize money of a total USD 20,000 will be awarded. 16 female players and 32 male players from around the world will do their best to collect important points for the international rankings.
During the tournament week, a recreational tournament for amateurs without a license as well as a legend tournament for selected legends of Swiss squash will be held once again. In addition, the national elite will play in various age categories. All in all, the entire spectrum will be presented within one week – from young to “old” and from top class to novice – making for a world-class squash spectacle.
The tournament is made possible by the main sponsor Sekisui Chemical Co. Ltd., which has committed itself to a sponsoring programme for 2013 to 2020. In this way Sekisui makes a significant contribution to the promotion of squash in Europe, a sport which the business magazine Forbes, after comprehensive scientific studies conducted in collaboration with universities, has declared the healthiest of all sports.
