End of the line for BSPA

July 2018: After 25 years the BSPA will not exist moving forwards.

 

It was set up in 1993 to give professional squash players in the UK a body to look after their interests and to organise a circuit events, as the then SRA had given up on the professional game.

25 years on and the PSA is doing a fantastic job for all squash professionals, and the UK now has a wide range of PSA events – from the British Open to Canary Wharf and St George’s Hill, plus Squash Squared, Grimsby/Cleethorpes, Tring, Aberdeen, Cardiff, Bangor plus numerous closed satellites.

British squash players have never had such a great array of tournaments, and can’t ever point at a lack of opportunity as a reason not to succeed. The BSPA has served its purpose.

The existing events have all confirmed that they will continue to run in 2018/19, but please contact the organisers directly.
