World No.1 Gregory Gaultier confirmed to compete at AJ Bell European Individual Closed Squash Championships

 

World No.1 Gregory Gaultier has confirmed that he will compete at this year’s AJ Bell ESF European Individual Closed Squash Championships to be staged at the University’s David Ross Sports Village from the 24th to 27th August.

The 34-year-old has enjoyed a sensational 2016 winning six consecutive tournaments on the Professional Squash Association (PSA) World Tour and can be guaranteed to make a tough-minded challenge for his tenth European Individual Closed Championship title after suffering a shock defeat in last year’s final to Spanish No.1 Borja Golan.

“The AJ Bell ESF European Individual Closed Squash Championships will be my first event of the new season," said Gaultier.

“Everyone will be fresh and ready to play after the summer break and I’m really looking forward to playing and representing my country. It will be the first time that I will have played at the University of Nottingham since the 2016 British Open and I’m really looking forward to experiencing the university’s wonderful new facilities,” added the 9-time champion.

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

The AJ Bell ESF European Individual Closed Squash Championships will see Europe’s top ranked players battle it out for Europe’s most prestigious individual title.
