Forexx Women's World Open Entry List Confirmed

31 Aug 2009

The Women's International Squash Players' Association has confirmed the final entry list for the Forexx Women's World Open, the premier WISPA World Tour event of the year which will take place in the Dutch city of Amsterdam from 23-27 September.

Defending champion Nicol David heads a star-studded entry list of 72 players from 24 countries who will travel to the Netherlands next month to compete for the official individual world title. Powerhouse England boasts 14 players in the draw, at least six more than any other country. Egypt and host country The Netherlands are both represented by eight players, followed by Australia (5), Hong Kong (5) and Malaysia (4).

"The Forexx Women's World Open in Amsterdam is going to be a spectacular event," said WISPA president Natalie Grainger. "It is the biggest and most prestigious championship on the tour and this is recognised by the entry of the top 100 players in the world, coming from all corners of the earth. Squash is a universal sport and the World Open is the pinnacle event, everybody will be there to compete," added the world number two from the USA.

The qualifying draw for the Forexx Women's World Open Squash 2009 - which offers a total prize fund of US$ 118,000, a record in women's squash - will be released on September 14th by WISPA, the governing body for the professional women's game. The main draw will be made on-site six days later, only a few hours before the qualifying competition kicks off in the renowned Frans Otten Stadion.

Tickets for the Forexx Women's World Open Squash 2009 can be purchased through the official tournament website www.womensworldopen.com.
