Record Prize Fund for the ESC Open

2019's Open event, taking place between 31st January - 3rd February, will have a record prize fund of £30,000 split equally between the Men’s Open and the Women’s PSA Challenger Tour 20 event. Alongside the professional events, a graded tournament featuring over 100 amateur players will also take place.

Since its inception in 2001, the Edinburgh Open has been a feature of the international squash scene, boasting a plethora of former World Number 1s, World Champions, and top ten players including Nick Matthew, John White, Alison Waters and Madeline Perry as winners. Both Scotland’s Number 1 and 2 players, Commonwealth Games semi-finalists, Greg Lobban and Alan Clyne, are also previous winners.

Defending Champion, Greg Lobban has confirmed he will defend his title.

Speaking about the event, Club Professional and Tournament Director, Simon Boughton, said:

 “Since its inaugural event in 2001 the championship has become a firm fixture on the international squash calendar and the strength of the draw continues to amaze me. It is rare to have squash of this level on our doorstep and anyone with an interest of the game really should think about coming along to have a look. It is also a great chance to see how our top players fare against those at the top of the world game.”

 Club Manager for Edinburgh Sports Club, Jonathan Tait, said:

 “This event continues to attract some of the world’s highest ranked professional players to give spectators a wonderful opportunity to watch squash of the highest quality being played over a four-day period. This record prize fund is in recognition of Edinburgh Sports Club’s commitment to attract the best squash players the world has to offer.”
