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.

Go-ahead for new sports centre at University of Hull

Planning permission has been granted for a new sports centre for students and the community, at the University of Hull.

The centre is part of an investment of close to £16-million in sporting facilities, already underway, which includes the creation of a Football Hub, funded in part with a £500,000 donation from the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund.

The sports centre will house a 12-court sports facility, including international-standard netball courts and bleacher-style seating for 700 spectators. The aim is to make the University the regional hub for netball.

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

Steve Curtis, Partnership and Project Manager (Sport), at the University of Hull, said “This is absolutely fantastic news. We pride ourselves in our sporting offer and this investment is transforming our existing facilities for the next generation of students and the region’s community. The new sports hall will be fitted with some of the best equipment, offering some of the finest facilities for our students and community to use.

Already work is well under way on refurbishing our artificial pitches and construction of a new pavilion began before Christmas. Our sports teams are already benefiting from these superior quality facilities.

We want our students to have the very best experience whilst here at Hull and the money we are investing in these facilities will enhance that experience.
We are looking forward to our students enjoying sport and fitness activities in the top quality facilities we are developing.”

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.

Matt Bramall, Vice-President for Sport at Hull University Union, said “I am absolutely delighted with today’s decision. It’s fantastic news that demonstrates an ambitious pursuit towards sporting excellence at the University of Hull.

By bringing the facilities up to speed, as well as building new pitches, we will be able to immensely improve the sport and active recreation we offer. Personally I feel sport is up there as one of the unique selling points of this university. Students have worked closely with the University to shape the new sports development and to see it coming to fruition is fantastic.

We have more than 50 sporting teams representing the University. This investment is a commitment to supporting their development and a step towards realising our vision for a top-level sporting University.”

The new facilities will boost the quality and size of facilities on offer at the University to meet a rising level of demand among students, as well as offer high-quality sporting provision for visiting teams and the wider community.

The University’s sports facilities receive around 2,000 visits a week, including from the local community, youth sports clubs and regional and national amateur and professional sports teams.

The University of Hull has a strong link with local sporting clubs, including being the official Training Partner of Hull City Tigers and the main shirt sponsor for Hull Kingston Rovers’ home shirt.

The University will also host 24 first round matches in the Allam British Open later this month, welcoming some of the world’s top squash players onto court.

The PSA World Series Tournament, dubbed the ‘Wimbledon of Squash’, is the oldest and one of the world’s most prestigious tournaments.
