Elevated Wolverhampton Open Attracts High Class Entries

Elevation of the status of the men's and women's events in the forthcoming Wolverhampton Open Squash Championships has attracted high class international fields in both categories.

Squash legend Jonah Barrington, the six times British Open champion, is heartened by the idea of these three events becoming part of a revival mini-tour. "A British circuit? It works very well. It sets in motion sensible thinking people into talking about squash in a positive way for the first time for years and years. It’s now going to happen for more than just a two-week period!"

Boswell, who will play all three events, is a well-known figure in the West Midlands: The 29-year-old from Canberra represented Birmingham club Edgbaston Priory with distinction in the Premier League - establishing a league-record 25-match unbeaten run over four seasons. With 17 PSA Tour titles to his name to date, Boswell opens his Wolverhampton campaign against Frenchman Jean-Michel Arcucci.

Madeline Perry will arrive in Wolverhampton full of confidence - after stretching Malaysia's world No1 Nicol David to four games in last week's Dutch Open in Amsterdam. The 30-year-old from Belfast begins her bid to win a seventh WISPA Tour title with a first round match against England's Jenna Gates, from Brighton in Sussex.

In the women's final, Perry is expected to meet second seed Laura Lengthorn-Massaro, the England international from Lancashire playing for the first time with a new hyphenated surname acquired after marrying Danny Massaro in the summer.

Women's 1st round draw:

[1] Madeline Perry (IRL) v Jenna Gates (ENG)

[8] Tenille Swartz (RSA) v Qualifier

[3] Dominique Lloyd-Walter (ENG) v Qualifier

[5] Sarah Kippax (ENG) v Laura Hill (ENG)
