Growing up, Squash was a favorite sport in our family. I have so many memories of my Dad tearing it up on the court and enjoying some friendly competition. For those of you who may be new to Squash, it’s a racquet sport played by two players (or four players for doubles) in a four-walled court with a small, hollow rubber ball. Similar to Racquetball, Squash uses a narrower racquet and a smaller court.

When we heard the Houston Squash Club would be hosting the first ever Southwestern Women’s Squash Open, it was a natural fit for Cotidié to be the presenting sponsor. Our mission is to empower women to live life more fully, and we have to say – these incredible squash players who competed in Houston are inspirations to girls and women all over the world. 

We want to send a huge Congratulations to Nouran Gohar for claiming the inaugural Southwestern Women’s Open title in Houston. Nouran took home the largest prize in a competition so far of $110,000.

Thank you to all of the competitors, promoters, spectators, and of course the Houston Squash Club for hosting. We are so proud!

Want to read more about the Squash Open? Head to the PSA World Tour and Squash Player Shop websites which have excellent recaps as well as many fantastic action shots of the players dominating the courts. The Squash Site is another favorite resource for all things squash if you want to learn more about the game and keep track of future tournaments.

Congratulations again to all of the incredible players!
