We are delighted to be able to share with you some great news regarding the refurbishment of the University’s Squash Courts.

  • POTENTIALLY- refurbish courts 1, 3 & 5 in Summer 2017- When and how these 3 courts are done will be agreed ASAP. (January 2018 is one option)

Chance to see world’s elite as Allam British Open returns to University

allam british squash

Some of the biggest names in world squash are to play at the University of Hull as one of the most prestigious tournaments is once again hosted in the city.

The Allam British Open returns to the University for the fifth-year, with more first round games than ever before.

The PSA World Series Tournament, dubbed the Wimbledon of Squash, is the oldest and is one of the world’s most sought-after titles.

This year, 24 matches will be played on University courts, pitting 48 of the world’s elite against each other.

The tournament offers staff, students and the community the chance to come onto campus and watch international players of the highest calibre.

Steve Curtis, Partnership and Programme Manager for Sport, at the University of Hull, said “We will have some spectacular games on campus with the majority of the world’s elite scheduled to play here. To have 48 top quality players is fantastic for the University. We are continuously investing in our facilities to be able to bring international tournaments like this to the University of Hull. We look forward to once-again hosting qualifying and first round matches from the tournament.”

The championships is sponsored by leading East Yorkshire businessman, Hull alumnus and honorary graduate Dr Assem Allam, with the University of Hull once again being one of the events associate partners and host venue.

The action starts with qualifying rounds on Sunday 19 March and Monday, 20 March, leading to the 24, Round 1 games at the Sports and Fitness Centre, on Tuesday.

The University of Hull in investing close to £16-million in improving sports facilities to significantly enhance the student experience.

Already the investment has seen resurfacing of all the artificial pitches, which include a sand-based hockey pitch and two 3G football pitches. A new 3G pitch which is football and rugby compliant is currently under construction.

A pavilion including classrooms, physiotherapy and changing facilities is also underway.

Construction on a new sports centre will begin in May. The sports centre will house a 12-court sports facility, including further squash courts and international-standard netball courts and bleacher-style seating for 700 spectators.

The versatile space will be used for a multitude of sports, including Basketball, Badminton, Futsal and Volleyball, among others.

The facility, being built adjacent to the current sports hall, will also house a strength and conditioning suite plus enhanced changing facilities.

The existing sports hall, which is to become a listed building, will be refurbished to a high standard. It is being turned into a 120-station fitness suite with state-of-the-art equipment and free weights. There will also be a dance studio which can also host fitness classes.
