Qatar Squash Classic

The Qatar WISPA Classic will be held in from April 13th to 17th in Khalifa International Tennis and Squash stadium. The competition is being held in April to replace the 2006 events, which should have been held in November 2006. Unfortunately both the men and women's events, with combined prize money of more than $200,000, were cancelled last year due to the renovation of squash facilities in Khalifa Stadium prior to the Asian Games.

Many of the world's top 20 players, including Nicol David, current number 1, will be playing. Tickets, as usual, are free. No schedule is available yet, but Qatar Squash Federation tells me that games should start at one o'clock most days. See http://www.squashtalk.com/html2/news07/apr/wispadraw07-4-1.html for details of the individual games.
