Dylan Murray, Mason Ripka, and Faraz Khan to Battle Touring Pros
Pro Squash Tour is returning to Pyramid Squash Club again this year on March 23-25 for the Pyramid Open. Four of PST's Top 11 players have registered for the event as they chase points to qualify for the PST Championship tournament in May.
Of equal interest, three of America's top junior players will again test their mettle against the tour's pros. Dylan Murray (Bronxville, NY), Faraz Khan (Floram Park, NJ), and Mason Ripka (New York, NY) are all Top 10 ranked juniors in American squash.
PST Commissioner Joe McManus says this could be a breakthrough event for the juniors. "These young men are training hard and are improving quickly. It's very possible one of them could go deep in this tournament."
Located in Tuckahoe, NY, Pyramid Squash is owned and run by Katja and Gamal Amir.
Gamal Amir was formerly ranked 28th in the world and was born in Cairo, Egypt. After more than 15 years of competitive playing, Gamal focused increasingly on his true passion - coaching. Since 1999 he has lived in the NY area and has developed several nationally and internationally ranked players.
