Tickets are now available for the 2019 FS Investments U.S. Open Squash Championships on usopensquash.com/tickets.
The U.S. Open is one of the world’s premier professional squash championships, featuring top players competing for its coveted title. The eight-day Professional Squash Association (PSA) World Tour Platinum event was first held in 1954 and has been hosted at Drexel University since 2011. The event pioneered gender parity in prize money for squash professionals in 2013 and is a leader in the drive for equality in the professional game. In 2019, a record $370,000 prize purse will be on offer.
In 2018, two reigning world champions captured the U.S. Open trophies: Raneem El Welily won her first U.S. Open while Mohamed ElShorbagy brought home his third.
As one of the most iconic and important sporting events held in the city of Philadelphia, the U.S. Open brings together all elements of the squash community through numerous special events celebrating the core values of the sport, including Women in Sports Day, Character in Sports Day, and the U.S. Squash Hall of Fame Induction Luncheon. Three amateur competitions are held concurrently with the U.S. Open: the Arlen Specter Pennsylvania Junior Championships, the U.S. Squash Skill Level Championships and the Intercollegiate Doubles Championships.
