The Insomnia Coffee Irish Squash Challenge 2, takes place this weekend in Sutton LTC from Friday September 17th – 19th. The entry is limited to Irish based players. After 18 months without tournament squash, Sport Ireland gave permission to hold this PSA event, for our top home based players.
PSA registered players have been training in a high performance hub, under strict controls since May. This was given special permission by Sport Ireland. The players have low PSA ranking points due to Covid, therefore Irish Squash is holding the event sponsored by INSOMNIA and using the opportunity to run a PSA tournament. It is smaller than usual, but set up by the PSA to support players in these challenging times.
The entry list includes, Sam Buckley, the No. 1 seed, Conor Moran, Alex Smith, Gavin L’Estrange, Oisin Logan, Denis Gilevskiy, Cillain Dunne and Todd Gowdy.
The 1st round matches start at 6.00pm on Friday 17th with the last match at 8.00pm. The semi finals start at 12pm on Saturday with the final at 12pm on Sunday. All matches will be live streamed on Irish Squash TV. Make sure to tune in and enjoy some top quality squash!
