PST World Championship May 3-5~~

Remember back in December when we had David Palmer and Thierry Lincou came out and played an exhibition match? Showed us how squash can be played, how it can be mastered, how it can be humorous, entertaining, and breathtaking? Well, it’s time to relive those emotions as the boys come back in May and play for the real deal – the PST World Championship title. This time, they’ll be playing to win.

The rare prospect of witnessing squash of such caliber cannot be snubbed. Don’t be like many members last year who regretted not making the effort to come and watch. Not only do you have the chance to observe and be amazed at these professionals, but you could also mingle with them and ‘pick their brains’ too. Accessibility to the public is an important trait of PST events; all I can do is encourage you all very strongly to take advantage.

The line-up for this year’s PST tour finale has a different look to 2012. We will be seeing David Palmer again who have qualified for the event along with 3 new faces: Stephane Galifi of Italy, Australia’s Wade Johnston, and a young American hopeful Bradbury Thompson. That leaves 4 openings still yet to be claimed, and those positions will be decided over the next 2 weeks as PST run their final leading up tournaments.

We are overly grateful at the support of our sponsors. Without them, this simply wouldn’t happen.

Bank of America have been wonderful to step in as our lead sponsor.
Sean Moran was once again without hesitation backing the event through Morgan Stanley.
Many, many compliments are to go to Patrick Petz and Skidmore Inc for his (their) help with the posters and banners,
