BRITISH JUNIOR OPEN
Co-hosted with the University of Birmingham, Solihull Arden and West Warwickshire Clubs, the British Junior Open, held in January, is one of the most prestigious squash tournaments in the world.
Attracting over 600 players from 40 countries, it features the world’s best junior squash players, many of whom go on to dominate the professional game.
The ‘Wimbledon of Squash’ is making its return to Birmingham for the first time since 2001. We’re thrilled to be hosting the opening two days of the event, before play moves over to The Rep in the heart of Birmingham city centre, where the action will take place on an all-glass showcourt from round three onwards.
England No.1s Mohamed ElShorbagy and Sarah-Jane Perry will compete for the titles alongside defending champions Paul Coll, of New Zealand, and Hania El Hammamy, of Egypt. Our very own Joel Makin, of Wales, is set to play the Peruvian No.2 seed, Diego Elias, in the second round.
