The Past, Present and Future of squash will converge in Windsor, Ontario from August 15th – 21st at the Devonshire Mall as the Squash Canada all-glass Power Court will play host to a series of exciting and important events to showcase our sport.
With thanks to Gold sponsors Ciena Healthcare, Greatech, SAZ Consulting, Shaban Dental Clinic, the Devonshire Mall, the City of Windsor, many generous silver and bronze sponsors and the Windsor Squash Community, four events will be held concurrently, including the inaugural Jahangir Khan Windsor Cup Men’s Invitational, the JK Windsor Open Women’s PSA 6K Challenger, and Women’s and Men’s 3K PSA Satellite Events.
The goal of this exciting celebration is to bring world-class squash to Windsor while providing critical development opportunities for Squash Canada’s Senior, NextGen and Junior athletes on their home soil. As Canada continues our pursuit of international success, it is only fitting to have the legendary Jahangir Khan as honorary Tournament Chair to help inspire the future. “I’ve always had an affinity for Canadian squash including winning my first World Championship in Toronto in 1981. I am excited to be part of this vision that will no doubt bring exposure to our great sport and develop our athletes,” said the 10-time British Open Champion who holds the record of 555 consecutive matches won.
The week will kick off with Women’s and Men’s 3K Satellite events being held on the Power Glass Court prominently installed in Windsor’s largest shopping centre, the Devonshire Mall, and at the Windsor Squash and Fitness Club from August 15th – 17th. These tournaments will attract aspiring young Canadian and International professionals looking for experience as well as valuable PSA points while competing in a spectacular venue. The JK Windsor Open Women’s 6K PSA Challenger will follow from August 18th – 21st, currently headlined by Canadian #4 Nikole Todd (SK) as our #1 seed.
The week will be capped off by the inaugural JK Windsor Cup Men’s Invitational featuring top PSA stars Marwan El Shorbagy of Egypt, Miguel Rodriguez of Colombia, Eain Yow Ng of Malaysia, Shahjahan Khan of the USA and top Canadians Nick Sachvie, Shawn Delierre and Mike McCue who will play in a 16 person draw with qualifying NextGen players from the Satellite competition.
More information on scheduling, ticketing and digital broadcasting will be available in the coming weeks. We look forward to seeing world-class athletes alongside the future of Canadian Squash competing in Windsor this summer.
