Alister Walker Seeded N.14 For PSA Cup In Kuwait
Alister Walker, represented by internationalSPORTgroup, is seeded fourteen for the this week's Kuwait PSA Cup, the third PSA World Series squash event of the year at Qadsia Sporting Club in Kuwait.
The unique event, originally scheduled for November last year but postponed due to local government elections, is open to the top 48 players in the world. The championship gets underway today and reaches its final on Thursday 14 March.
Squash legend Jahangir Khan, the record ten-time British Open champion from Pakistan who is Vice Chairman of the event's organising committee, said: "This is the latest event in our three-year deal with the PSA and we are delighted to welcome so many of the world's top players to Kuwait.
"We are indebted to the support of Sheikha Fadyah Al-Sabah, the daughter of the Patriarch Amir HH Sheikh Saad Abdullah Al-Sabah, who is Chairman of the organising committee. The Sheikha has played a huge role in supporting and developing squash in Kuwait for more than ten years - and this year this has led to additional backing from the government of Kuwait.
"Kuwait squash has advanced considerably in recent years," Khan continued. "The country's top player Abdullah Al Muzayen is now 38 in the world - and qualifies for the Kuwait PSA Cup by right! So we can have a second Kuwaiti in the draw as a wild card - and this will enable 18-year-old Yousif Nizar Saleh to compete in his first World Series championship."
