Even before the first ball is served, the 2013 U.S. Open has already made history as the first ever professional squash tournament to offer equal prize money for both the men’s and women’s tournaments.
Players will compete for their share of a $230,000 total prize purse, divided equally to $115,000 in each draw.
The women’s draw will also be increased to 32 players from a previous 16, now in line with the men’s draw, providing an opportunity for more female professional players to compete in a World Series event.
The news caught the attention of many in the sports world, including tennis-great Billie Jean King, who expressed her support.
“This announcement is so much more about the message than the money, and I am thrilled another U.S. championship event has stepped up and done the right thing.”
With more money in the pot, the stakes are higher in 2013 than ever before. Spectators are sure to see a tournament full of exciting matches and spectacular play from the best squash players in the world today.
“This year’s event, with the full 32 draw for men and women will be our best presentation of the championships to date. Our partnership with Drexel, now in its third year, also makes it easy for us to put on a great entertainment showcase,” said Kevin Klipstein, CEO of U.S. Squash.
“This is not your ordinary squash event.”
The event forms part of the 2013 World Series for both the Professional Squash Association (PSA) and Women’s Squash Association (WSA).
All the action starts Wednesday, October 9. For more information, head to www.usopensquash.com.
