*NASH CUP Press Release*
It’s with great pride and excitement we announce that the 11th Annual NASH Cup Professional Squash Tournament – running September 18-23 - will feature the largest women’s purse ever seen in Southwestern Ontario. It may also be the only PSA tournament globally where the women’s purse will be larger than the men’s.
“One of the goals of this event is to support our Canadian squash players and the Canadian Squash Program. There are currently 5 Canadian women ranked in the world’s top 60. An increased NASH Cup purse has the potential to further boost their rankings. The same tournament level for the men, where our top player is currently ranked 74th, could limit the ability of our rising starts to gain entry” – Jay Nash, 2018 Tournament Host
This event has been a grass roots effort since its launch in 2008. Supported by the members of London Squash & Fitness, dedicated sponsors, and an incredible volunteer committee the tournament has expanded from an original $5K USD men’s purse to a combined $30K USD purse today.
In the coming weeks professional players will begin entering from around the world. Entries are set to close August 7th and our players will be known August 9th. The field will feature 48 athletes including 6 local entries.
Tickets are very limited and with some nights already sold out.
Amateur entry will open soon at www.squashontario.com
