Dubai Opera to host world squash finals

World’s top players take over the venue June 6-10

The Dubai Opera is perhaps more used to hosting musicals and concerts, the venue is preparing itself for the first televised live sporting event in its history.

The PSA Dubai World Series Finals is coming to town on Tuesday June 6 until Saturday 10, when the world’s top eight squash players will be gracing the stage for one of the most prestigious titles on the squash tour.

A round robin best-of-three series will be played to determine which four players will grab a place in the semi-finals – with both the men’s and women’s draws offering up a prize pot of US$160,000 (Dhs588,000)

This year’s event is the first of a two-year contract agreed between the Professional Squash Association and the Dubai Sports Council, with next year’s event taking place between June 5 and June 9.

If you’re a fan of squash, this is your opportunity to get up close and personal with the best players around inside one of Dubai’s best venues.
