Squash New Zealand seeks to gain a long term commitment from hosts and wishes to grow the number and size of professional events hosted.
Consideration will be given to turning District Open events into a WSF Satellite Tournament which will allow players to earn ranking points with a lower prizemoney requirement and less regulations than those of the other Regional Tour events.
Squash New Zealand is seeking expressions of interest to host any of the events listed above or to enter into discussions for hosting larger events. Priority for hosting events will be given to those with previous hosting experience. Full details on hosting these events can be provided upon request. Please also check the PSA Tour Rule Book 2017/2018 as well.
Expressions of Interest close 8th September to firstname.lastname@example.org. Squash New Zealand would appreciate any club or organization who is interested in hosting these events to make early contact to discuss the requirements.
