ABOUT

Hosted on behalf of the European Squash Federation in partnership with England Squash and University of Nottingham Sport, this year’s AJ Bell European Individual Closed Squash Championships will mark the first occasion that the event has been staged in the British Isles.

David Ross Sports Village

The David Ross Sports Village is a £40 million investment at the heart of the University of Nottingham’s University Park Campus. The new facilities have only been open since September and offer student, staff and public members an inspirational and accessible sports environment for all.

Alongside the 6 glass backed squash courts available on site, we have one of only four all-glass squash courts in the country. Our all-glass show court can seat over 250 spectators and has housed national competitions bringing in world-class players like Nick Matthew and Millie Tomlinson.

Current student athletes and scholars include Hana Ramadan, whose wins include three PSA World Tour titles and Owain Taylor, silver and bronze medal holder at European Team championships (2014, 2016). The University of Nottingham strives for excellence in squash and has come 4th in the British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) league tables since 2015.
