Background

Birmingham is rapidly establishing itself as a major international squash city, and the University of Birmingham is delighted to be hosting the 10th edition of the World University Championships in its brand new Sport & Fitness club, formally opened a few weeks ago by IOC Member HRH Princess Royal. With six ASB squash courts and an all-glass show court erected specially for the event, the Championships are part of a series of squash events in Birmingham, including the new venue for the highly successful relaunch of the British Junior Open; European Team Championships in 2019; and the venue for the 2022 Commonwealth Games squash.
