Under the auspices of the Polish Squash Federation, the event will be held in the city of Bielsko-Biała from 7th to 16th of August in 2016. The event in 2016 will comprise the Men’s and Women’s Individual Championships, followed by the Men’s Team Championship.

Hosting the World Juniors next year is a huge challenge for all my team and we’re very happy to bring such an event to our squash-booming region. We see massive potential in this event and so our modern 10-court facility will be well prepared,” said Maciej Klis, owner of Enjoy Squash, the venue for the championships in Bielsko-Biała.

We will try to provide the highest level of Polish hospitality and make things as easy as possible for all the young players, parents and coaches. Also there will be an all-glass court provided by Squash Promotion Group and installed in the heart of Bielsko-Biała city right under our classic castle. We think the need of presenting squash to the public is a strong desire of any player” Klis continued.

The World Junior Championships have long been a stepping stone to adult success since the first championship took place in 1980: The current Egyptian world number ones are both double World Junior Individual title winners – Mohamed Elshorbagy in 2008 & 2009, and Raneem El Welily the women’s champion in 2005 and 2007.

We kindly remind you that squash is one of the 31 sports of The World Games 2017 in Wroclaw (Poland).
