MALTA SQUASH MASTERS 2020

Sport(s): Squash

Federation: European Squash Federation

Status: ESF Masters Circuit

Date: 6 Nov 20 - 8 Nov 20


UPDATE (13th August 2020): After a period of zero active covid cases in Malta during July, the infectoin rate has recently seen an increase. As a result of this increase we have temporarily stopped online entries but hope to be able to re-open them towards the end of August when hopefuly the situation will have improved.  We will provide regular updates on this page.
Please see all information about this year’s tournament below:
After the success of last year’s tournament (which was full to capacity 3 months before the entry deadine) and the fact that so many players are so excited about getting back on court, we advise you to please enter early to avoid disappointment. We have a maximum of 120 players and it is on a first come first served basis.
A final decision will be made by European Squash at the end of August about whether this year’s Malta Squash Masters will be an official ESF event with ranking points etc. However, even if the ESF decide it cannot be an official ESF Masters event, we will still stage the tournament as a non-ESF event.
We are working closely with the Marsa Sports Club and local health officials to take all sensible health and safety measures for the tournament and we will write to all players before the tournament to  make sure these measures are very clear so that they will be followed by everyone involved in the tournament.
Covid-19 restrictions effecting travel and events are changing all the time so all players are advised to book flexible flights or have insurance in case the current restrictions change in a way which may effect the tournament or your ability to participate in the tournament. This is the responsibility of the players.
The deals we have in place with the two tournament hotels as part of the tournament packages (see below) allows us to give a full refund on any covid-19 related cancellations up to 1 day before the start of any bookings.
Pool area at Marsa Club open to all players + friends & family
