Hotels are a significant perk for players competing in PSA events. Unfortunately finding a good price and negotiating a hotel contract can be a nightmare for a promoter. US Squash has partnered with ConferenceDirect to provide hotels to a number of professional events with great success. Combined with US Squash’s payment processing, promoters can simply approve the rate and contract, assure that they’re getting the best possible deal. Please contact graham.bassett@ussquash.com for more information.

The number of professionals based in the US has increased significantly in the past few years and more and more young talent are playing professionally. Local spots and Wildcards can provide a significant boost to a player just starting on tour. If you have not committed these spots and are looking for suggestions, we can help you fill them with deserving players. Please contact Rich Wade at rich.wade@ussquash.com.
