The six-day, season-ending event, beginning at Cairo’s Mall of Arabia on Sunday June 9, will see the top eight men and women on the PSA World Tour Finals Leaderboard do battle for the prestigious title and the lucrative $320,000 prize fund. Players will compete in round-robin group stages with the top two from each group progressing to the knockout semi-finals and final.
