ToC in Grand Central gets the female touch

The world’s largest squash spectator event, the J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions, announced today that the 2012 championships will include a women’s professional draw in addition to the men’s PSA World Series Gold championship draw.

“We are absolutely thrilled that we are able to host the top professional women squash players in addition the best men’s players for the upcoming championships,” says John Nimick, president of Squash Engine, Inc., the event promoter.

“The inclusion of the top ranking players from both the men’s and women’s professional tours is especially fitting given the iconic status of the J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions in the global squash community.”  Recognized by Yahoo last week as one of the top ten of the world’s “most unusual sports venues,” the J.P Morgan Tournament of Champions will take place January 20-26, 2012 in Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Terminal.

Sanctioned by the Women’s Squash Association (WSA), the J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions women’s draw will feature a 16-player main draw and a 16-player qualification tournament.
