Women's World Team Championship Returns To France

21 Mar 2016

Four years after being held in France for the first time, the 2016 WSF Women's World Team Squash Championship will return to the European country, to be staged in Issy-les-Moulineaux and the capital Paris from 28 November to 3 December 2016.

Hosted by the Fédération Française de Squash, the 20th edition of the World Squash Federation event will take place at the historic Jeu De Paume and St Cloud Squash clubs, with final stages being held on an all-glass court at the Palais Des Sports Robert Charpentier.

"We look forward to welcoming the world's top women squash players to one of the world's greatest cities," said FFS President Jacques Fontaine.

"Our women's team is growing in strength each year and we are hoping that home advantage will give us the opportunity to improve on our sixth place finish in two of the last three championships."

The France team is expected to be led by British Open champion Camille Serme, the world No.4 who has represented her country in the five previous world team championships, including the 2012 event in Nimes.
