  25-Apr-10:
Rotterdam to host 2010 Dutch Open

The Dutch Open Squash will take place again this year in Rotterdam. The most prestigious squash championship on Dutch soil will be staged from 16-21 November 2010 at Victoria Squash, one of the most successful squash clubs in the Netherlands.

Last year was the first time that the high profile event was played in Rotterdam, also known as the ‘City of Sports’ in Holland, as a result of an extensive partnership that was struck between promoter NextSquash and its tournament partners Squash Bond Nederland and Rotterdam Topsport to further enhance the profile of squash in the harbour city.

In the same deal it was agreed that Rotterdam would also host the World Open Squash 2011, the individual world championship for both men and women, which was announced a few months ago.

The Dutch Open Squash 2010 will see the return of the best female players to the championship after a one year absence due to the staging of the Forexx Women’s World Open Squash 2009 in the Netherlands.

As a result last year’s edition of the Dutch Open featured only a PSA event, which was won by Englishman Daryl Selby, the world number nine, who followed in the footsteps of his compatriot Nick Matthew who won the Dutch Open the year before.

Malaysia’s World Champion Nicol David is the reigning title holder in the women’s event after beating Natalie Grinham in the 2008 final.
