Monkhouse Intersport Continue to
Strengthen Squash Partnership

England Squash & Racketball have today announced Monkhouse Intersport as the retail partner to the 2014 National Squash Championships taking place in Manchester between 10-16 February.

The retailer who celebrated its 75th anniversary last year, has a strong presence in sport as part of the Intersport Retail Network with over 250 stores in the UK and is a welcomed partner to the established event.

The National Championships are also a key event for Manchester City Council who run the tournament alongside the National Governing Body. The City Council have a history of supporting major squash events having previously hosted two World Championships in the city – the most recent in November 2013 at Manchester Central.

Peter Monkhouse, Managing Director of Monkhouse Intersport, says:

“Monkhouse Intersport are delighted to continue our long association with the National Squash Championships. Since we partnered Manchester City Council and England Squash back in the late 90’s, it is fantastic to witness the significant growth and development of the event which now represents one of the best Squash Championships.

“Having all of the age groups and male and female players means that we reach a wider spectrum of the squash playing community in the UK and we feel incredibly proud to be part of this event,”
he added.

Neil Fairlamb, Manchester City Council Head of Sport said:

“Manchester is the home of English Squash and the sport continues to grow in popularity across the city, demonstrated by the popularity of last year’s National Squash Championships.

“This year’s championship is certain to be just as, if not more, thrilling and forms a vital part of our upcoming 2014 programme, that also includes UCI BMX Supercross World Cup, Super League Magic Weekend and the Manchester City Games among its many highlights.”

Chris Nutley, Head of Competitions and Events at England Squash & Racketball, added:

“We are thrilled to be working with Monkhouse Intersport again, they are an incredibly professional retailer and a pleasure to work with. Their continued support to the National Squash Championships is very highly valued and we look forward to another fantastic event!”

Britain’s top male and female squash players, including world number one and current World Champion Nick Matthew, will be battling it out to win the coveted National title next month at the National Squash Centre.

Hundreds of Masters squash players will also have the chance to compete in Manchester, alongside the pros, as men and women in the over-35 to over-75 events battle it out for age group titles.
