Squash World Series Finals to make US debut

London, Dec 27 : The Professional Squash Association (PSA) Friday announced that the 2013 World Series Finals will take place in Virginia, United States from March 15-19, 2014.

One of the pinnacle events on the squash calendar, the World Series Finals have been staged at London's Queens Club for the past four years but the PSA have decided to take the event 'on the road' to help increase global awareness of the sport.

The Finals will be the first ever held on American soil with Richmond extending their already long-standing association with world class squash, having staged the North American Open for the past five years.

"The Finals have enjoyed a superb few years at London's Queens Club but we felt that a change in schedule for this event was necessary," said PSA Chief Executive Alex Gough.

"The Finals have taken place in the UK since the mid-1990s but with PSA World Tour events taking place in all corners of the globe, we want to maximise on the international reach of squash. "

With the iconic Tournament of Champions returning to New York in January and Chicago's Windy City Open joining the World Series line-up in February, the World Series Finals will add a further North American feel to the 2014 calendar.

The top eight players in the World will be hosted at the luxurious Jefferson Hotel before going head-to-head at Richmond's Westwood Club for the right to be crowned World Series Champion.
