STARS HEAD TO THE MOTE
Entries for the 2017 Select Gaming Kent Open include former world No.12 Alister Walker, plus Kent’s own Josh Masters, who is now ranked 59 in the world.
Entries close during the first week in May, so we are anticipating plenty more big names joining the Entry List.
WILD CARD 2017:
This year’s Wild Card has been awarded to Daniel Poleshchuk, the Israeli number one.
Daniel is making great strides in the sport and we look forward to welcoming him to The Mote in June.
As a “Thank You” for the Wild Carad, Daniel will be holding several training camps during the week, for adults and juniors.
PSA WOMEN’S SATELLITE EVENT:
This year we are proud to announce the inclusion of a PSA Women’s Satellite event, which will take place over the final three days of the tournament (Friday, Saturday and Sunday).
This is in line with the club’s ambition to grow numbers in women’s squash and racketball.
We are launching a new fun format for social and serious players at the club on Sunday April 30th.
Play Squash / Watch The Pros / Party
Sounds like the perfect combination for squash lovers!
Watch out for details for some fun tournaments during Finals Weekend, with the Spitfire Team Challenge, doubles and racketball all being planned.
We will have more matches to enjoy, with the women’s event being added to the men’s, and we hope that will help to make the club busier than usual during the weekend.
