Brighton Classic Beached

29 Jul 2004

Next week's Brighton & Hove Beach Classic has suffered a last-minute postponement.

"It is with great regret that we have to announce today the postponement of this year's event," said Mark Bellinger today, on behalf of the organisers Squash247.com.

"Despite all the efforts by the management team, due to a failure by a third party contractor at the eleventh hour, we have been left with no alternative other than to postpone the event.

"However we are delighted to announce that all the event sponsors have pledged their full support in restaging this tournament. Brighton and Hove City Council have given us their full support along with the official venue sponsor The De Vere Grand Hotel," Bellinger added.

The event had attracted a strong field of men and women from the PSA and WISPA World Tours. The organisers plan to stage the 2005 Brighton & Hove Beach Classic from 01-06 August next year.

Squash247 apologised for any inconvenience caused, but stressed that "we are committed to resolving the issues encountered to ensure that next year's event is a massive success on the beach."

A more detailed statement will be made later today by Squash247, which will be posted on the event website www.squashonthebeach.com
