On the 6th of June, came to its end the Fist Open International Squash Tournament in Saint Petersburg, held in Game Sport Center “PRO”.

Slight nervousness before the beginning of the game, bright emotions and expression on the courts, competition spirit, flavor of victory and defeat! No competition manages without it! All the viewers and supporters will remember for a long time the last day of the games by its emotional and spectacular finals. Cups, medals and valuable prizes found their owners!

Maxim Brovkov, the Director of the Tournament and Sport Centre “PRO”, said during the Final Closing Tournament Ceremony:

"The International Tournament to my opinion is a great event in sport and social life of our city. This event not only strengthens the squash traditions as a kind of sport, but also helps to consolidate cultures and traditions of different countries of the world! We will continue to develop Squash game in Russia, launch new projects, conduct interesting tournaments, and bring up new generation of squash players.

"From September with the help of Sport Committee of St. Petersburg Government will start a competitive intake to the free children squash sections. At the beginning of November 2010 will be held an International rating squash tournament guided by PSA. The most important strategic aim is to win the right to conduct in Saint Petersburg the team European Championship (ENCC) in 2012!"
