Egyptians have a lot to look forward to this December as the 2014 Women’s World Squash Championship will be taking place from 15th to December 20th in Cairo.

It is no secret that Egyptian are a squashing threat, so what better place to have this showdown than on home turf? Offering a $150,000 prize, the World’s Women Squash Championship is the most prestigious tournament on the WSA World Tour and will be making only its second appearance in Cairo since its 1979 inauguration.

Given the honours to host the 30th edition of this premier tournament is none other than the Wadi Degla club in Cairo. Their Maadi branch is currently the training base for Raneem El-Welily, world #3, as well as eight other home grown players ranking in the top 50.

The odds are in Egypt’s favour and chances are it won’t be football that makes Egyptians clamour to cafes across this country this December but rather, women’s squash.
