EK Squash 2020 delayed due to the corona virus
Europe’s largest squash tournament, which was scheduled to be held in April in Eindhoven’s Klokgebouw, has been rescheduled for later this year. The decision to delay was made jointly by the organisation, which is a collaboration between Squashtime Eindhoven, DPD Pakketservice and Squash Bond Nederland, and the European Squash Federation.
Sjef van der Heijden, owner of Squashtime Eindhoven:
The sporting world has been hit hard by the measures governments’ have put in place. For the first time, sport in the Netherlands has been brought to a complete standstill. This is an unprecedented situation for the Netherlands. The organisation recognises its shared responsibility towards stakeholders, players and visitors. Protecting public health and taking the steps necessary to combat the virus as best as we can are of the utmost important, and the professional world of squash must act responsibly in this situation. As an organisation, we do not see any other alternative than to delay the EK. Later, when we are able to hold the tournament, we plan on making it the greatest squash party in Europe.
Delayed to later in 2020
Every effort is being made to eventually be able to hold the tournament in the Netherlands. In the time to come, all the parties involved will be looking for an alternative date for the European Squash tournament, where international top players like Gregory Gaultier, Camille Serme, Simon Rossner and Milou van der Heijden will get the chance to compete on behalf of their country for the European Title after all.
Ticket sales for the tournament are temporarily closed. Tickets that have already been purchased will remain valid for the tournament later in the year. As soon as there is any news about the tournament it will be published at this website.
