Kuwait will host its first World Team championship after being awarded the rights to hold the 2015 Men’s World Team Squash Championship by the World Squash Federation.
The fast-growing squash nation has twice hosted the Asian championships and in 1997 first launched the Kuwait Open, a major PSA World Tour event which has continued to attract the world’s leading players. In 2009, Kuwait staged the PSA World Championship at Green Island Resort.
“Squash has a long and flourishing history in Kuwait and we have already held major World Tour events featuring both men and women’s championships as well as the Men’s World Individual Championship,” said a spokesman for the Kuwait Squash Federation. “We are now honoured to have been selected to host the top 32 teams in the world in two years’ time.”
WSF President N Ramachandran welcomed Kuwait as a new host of its premier team event: “Kuwait Squash not only has high quality facilities but now also abundant experience at staging major squash events, which is why I am delighted that we have chosen Kuwait to host this Championship. It is a fantastic, exciting event and will be much anticipated.”
Action will be take place at the Late Sheikh / Salem Al-Sabah International Squash Complex from 12-18 December 2015.
