Twenty tournaments in six months

The Professional Squash Players Association (PSA) has unveiled the calendar for its world tour – the PSA World Tour – for the year 2023. It includes 20 tournaments played between January and June. And it is very American, with ten stages played in the United States. The year will begin with two competitions taking place simultaneously from 11 to 15 January, the Carol Weymuller Open and the Houston Open, followed from 18 to 26 January by the first Platinum tournament of the year, the J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions, held in the prestigious Grand Central Terminal in New York. The North American tour will continue with stops in Cleveland, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Washington D.C. and Calgary, Canada, before the tour returns to Egypt for the CIB Black Ball Open (March 2-8). A British tour will follow in Canary Wharf, Wimbledon and Birmingham, which will host the British Open for the first time since 2001, from 9 to 16 April. The major event of the season, the PSA World Championships, will be held at Chicago’s Union Station from 3-11 May (pictured above). The season will end with two events in Egypt and a tournament in Calgary.
