Oracle Netsuite Squash Open
The Oracle NetSuite Open began yesterday as the PSA World Tour returned to San Francisco’s Squash Engine Court, after a year's hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year’s prize pot totals $242,000, split equally between the men’s and women’s events and represents the joint largest fund in the tournament’s history.
The tournament, which uses best-of-three scoring until the final, when it switches to best of five, has once again attracted a strong lineup including Karakal stars Joel Makin and Tesni Evans.
British National Champion and 8th seed Joel faces Saurav Ghosal of India in the first round, whilst Tesni, also seeded 8, meets home player Olivia Fiechter of the USA.
