World-Class Professional Squash
Coming to Westchester
Pro Squash Tour will return to Westchester County for the Pro Squash Cup hosted by Westchester Squash Club in Mamaroneck, NY this December 2-4, 2011.
Australian #1 David Palmer headlines the inernational draw. Palmer made his PST debut this month in Cleveland, Ohio and won the Cleveland Classic over Irish Champion John Rooney.
Also registered is current PST points leader Mohamed El Sherbini, who has already won the San Diego Open and Bobcat Classic tournaments this season in California and Maine. Before turning pro, Sherbini was Egypt's #1 ranked junior player. He was PST's top recruit last season and is enjoying playing in the U.S.-based tour.
TG Raubenheimer of South Africa, who recently took the Head Pro position at Westchester Squash Club in Mamaroneck, NY is PST #15 and will also be a top seed. He is joined by fellow Westchester Squash teaching pros Lester Brown (Canada) and Louis Ragou (England).
More than 150 years old and played by more than 20 million people in 185 countries, including 885,000 in the U.S., squash has shown sustained growth in the U.S. in recent years. The US based Pro Squash Tour was founded in 2009 and has quickly become the world's most popular squash tour. The season begins in August and runs through May.
