Welcome to the homepage of the 2020 Swiss Open PSA $6,000 Challenger Tour men's tournament. For the third time this international event will be held at the Squash Arena in Uster in conjuction with Switzerland's largest squash tournament, the 7th Arena Cup. In addition to over 100 sportspeople of all ages attending the Arena Cup on 31st October/1st November, we will be hosting both elite international squash players as well as young Swiss talents for the five day Swiss Open.
Regrettably, due to the global Covid-19 virus situation, entries to the Swiss Open 2020 have been restricted to residents from bordering countries. Despite this, we will be hosting players from Japan, Germany, Italy, England, France, Egypt, Liechtenstein as well as 17 players from Switzerland. Competing from Switzerland are eleven PSA players, and as a reult of the unusual circumstances, six Swiss invitees. With 32 players including six top 200 players and our top seed, world number 80 Ryosei Kobayashi, we are anticipating high quality, exciting matches.

Please note that people entering Switzerland from many regions of these countries are required by Swiss law to do ten days of quarantine. No players or accompanying persons who have been in or passed through one of these countries or regions after the 17th October 2020 may attend the tournament.
