Venue

The all-glass court will be erected on The Crescent at Camana Bay.

The set up will be different to 2010 in that the court and seating will be spun 180 so that the front wall of the glass court is facing down The Paseo towards Abacus Restaurant and the cinema. This allows for a much bigger and more accessible public viewing area.

CINSA

The tournament is run by CINSA, the Cayman Islands National Squash Association. CINSA is a non-profit sporting body responsible for junior squash and representative squash in the Cayman Islands.

CINSA is run by a board of volunteer Directors. The current board is Janet Sairsingh (Chairperson), Jeff Broderick, Scott Macdonald, Natalie Lawson, Jane Kelly & Ken Moore.
 

Women's Tournament

The women's tournament is one of the top five biggest events on the professional squash tour. For 2010 we had 8 of the top 10 women in the world participating, including World #1 and World Champion Nicol David from Malaysia.

The 2011 Cedrus Cayman Open has a 33% increase in the prize money for the women, ensuring the tournament is stronger.

At this stage we have 16 of the world's top 20 women entered in the tournament.


Men's Tournament


The men's tournament is an invitational event for the best players in the Caribbean to battle against the best in the world. 16 men will compete for the title.

Cayman's top 5 men will join 9 men from the Caribbean - Bahamas, Bermuda, Barbados, Jamaica, Guyana, St Lucia and Trinidad. Rounding out the event will be the world #12, Alister Walker. Born in Botswana he now plays for England and is part of their team that won the European Championships.

And finally World #2 and 2008 World Champion Ramy Ashour from Egypt will be part of the 2011 Cedrus Cayman Open, ensuring the best in the world are present.


Cayman Players


Eight of Cayman's best men and women will be flying the Cayman flag in the tournament.

In the women's event Cayman's top juniors Kristina Myren and Eilidh Bridgeman will be competing in the Qualifying Tournament. Kristina and Eilidh won silver and bronze respectively at the 2010 Caribbean Junior Squash Championships.

Cayman's top woman Marlene West will be given a wildcard into the main draw. Her first match will be on the glass court at Camana Bay against a player ranked in the top 8 in the world!

Five Cayman men will represent the country in the men's event. Leading the charge will be current Caribbean U19 Champion Cameron Stafford. His team mates from the recent Commonwealth Games, Myron Blair and Alex Frazer will be participating. Top Cayman players Gabe Rabess and David Finch will complete the Cayman participation.
  
Sponsors

An enormous number of sponsors have made this event a reality


Non-Profit


100% of the profits of the 2011 Cedrus Investments Cayman Islands Squash Open at Camana Bay go to the junior squash programme for CINSA.

Over $32,000 worth of squash equipment will be donated to the programme and considerable funding (and all profits) will go to CINSA to allow free and subsidised squash for Cayman's juniors.

During the tournament over 300 juniors from 12 different schools will get free workshops with the visiting pros. Cayman's elite and national junior squash teams will get to train on the glass court at Camana Bay, with profits from our tournament raffle helping fund the National Junior Team attending the 2011 Caribbean Junior Championships in Guyana.
