TICKETS are already selling quickly for London’s premier squash tournament, the 2014 Canary Wharf Squash Classic.

If early sales are anything to go by, this PSA International 50 event is heading for a sell-out for the fifth year in a row.

The event takes place from 24-28th March 2014 and more than 650 tickets have been sold within a fortnight of going on sale as fans rush to secure their prime spot in front of the action.

Tournament promoter Peter Nicol, the former world champion, is delighted by the response.

Nicol, a director of Eventis Sports Marketing, said: “I think everybody agreed that last year’s tournament was the best in terms of quality and we were able to serve up high-class entertainment every day.

“As our tenth anniversary tournament it was quite a landmark event and it was especially fitting that James Willstrop should win his fourth title, having played in every single Canary Wharf Classic since its inception.

“We are now in our 11th year of working in partnership with the Canary Wharf Group to bring the world’s best players to the magnificent East Wintergarden venue.

“The feedback from the players is always enormously positive. They love the atmosphere generated by a sell-out crowd and we would be delighted to see that happen for a fifth year running.”

Nicol and Tournament Director Tim Garner set a record for endurance and stamina in the summer as they took part in the incredible Xodus 7 Continent Challenge to promote squash’s Olympic bid.

They played seven matches in seven days in the Falkland Islands, Chile, Australia, Malaysia, Egypt, London and New York in an astonishing display of support for the sport they love.

Garner added: “It was an amazing week and Peter and I are probably still recovering!

“Even though the IOC decision to re-admit wrestling was frustrating for the squash community, events like Canary Wharf continue to showcase the sport at the highest level and the sport is better placed thanks to a quality bid.”
