Our goal is to create a unique and first class annual women's squash tournament providing some great competition for Hong Kong’s lady players. There is prize money for the winners and runners up in each of the three divisional draws as well as great prizes.
In the short term this will bring together the ladies squash community. In the long term we would like to popularise squash as a game for all and increase community awareness and participation of the game.
Women's Squash Week
The event is held in conjunction with world Women’s Squash Week 2019, a celebration for women squash players. Women’s Squash Week began in 2008 as a US Squash-backed initiative, and aims to motivate women to get on the squash court to reap both the fitness and social benefits of the sport. The Squash Angels Tournament is formally part of this global movement bringing the Hong Kong flag to the event logo and connected with this prestigious global event.
A maximum of 64 competitors will play across four levels: Level A, Level B, Level C and Level D. These levels are based on Hong Kong Squash League standards. There is no age restriction.
