World Championships Unveil VIP Hospitality Packages

25 Jul 2008

Visitors to this October's Hi-Tec World Open Championships in Manchester will be able to watch the action in style after it was announced that a limited number of VIP hospitality packages will be available from Thursday 16th to Sunday 19th October.

The packages will allow spectators at the National Squash Centre to watch the world's best players from the comfort of reserved side and back wall seats, and will also include a hot buffet which can be washed down with a selection of wines and soft drinks.

Jim Quigley, Head of Major Sports Events and Partnerships, Manchester City Council, said: "The Hi-Tec World Squash Championships - Manchester 2008 will be the biggest and best squash tournament ever staged so we're delighted to be able to announce that there will be top level hospitality to complement the world class squash.

"The packages are based on similar options which we trialled at the National Championships earlier this year and proved to be hugely popular. Since the Commonwealth Games in 2002, Manchester has established a deserved reputation of hosting some of the best sports events in the world and visitors to the National Squash Centre in October will be provided with world class facilities."

The packages, along with regular tickets, are available from the event's official website www.worldsquash2008.com which also has full details on the event.
