The Bexley Open 2020 - PSA action returns to Kent!

The Bexley Open 2020, held on the 19th & 20th of December 2020 at Bexley Lawn Tennis, Squash and Racketball Club, will be the first Professional Squash Association (PSA) tournament to be run in Kent since the UK national lockdown in March 2020.

The event, being run by newly appointed Kent Head Coach, Ben Ford, will feature a 16 player men’s and women’s draw and is a registered PSA Challenger 3 event.

The tournament, created by Ford as a means to get a series of lower PSA ranked players back on court competing has been well received by local donors and companies who have come together to help raise funds for the tournament costs and prize money fund. Many of these players have not competed in an event since pre-lockdown in March and this is hopefully the first of many events to follow that are targeted at the lower-ranked bracket of players, helping them to earn much-needed ranking points, prize money and match practice.

Kent’s top two players, Josh Masters (Maidstone) and Gina Kennedy (Park Langley), who both competed in the recent AJ Bell England Squash Challenge event (with Kennedy going on to win the women’s event!) are set to feature in their respective draws and the wildcard in the men’s event has been handed to Kent’s No.1 Junior, Jack Mitterer (Park Langley).

Masters (4th Seed) opens up his campaign against world no. 163, Harry Falconer (Lincolnshire), whilst Mitterer has been dealt a first round clash with 5th Seed & world no.  140, Curtis Malik (Sussex). Kennedy is set to meet 8th Seed & world no. 113, Katriona Allen (Scotland) in her first round encounter in the women’s event.

The full draws can be found at the bottom of this article.
