The J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions returns for its twenty-sixth staging in Grand Central Terminal’s iconic Vanderbilt Hall, January 17-25, in New York City.
The world’s top players–including seven Americans–will be competing for the PSA Platinum titles with equal prize money on offer. Tickets, draws and and more information are available on tocsquash.com.
“The ToC’s unique location in Grand Central Terminal and mix of free viewing and reserved seating allows us to present this great sport to thousands of new fans,” said John Nimick, the tournament owner and director. “The international players love the event because the galleries are always full and commuters and visitors pack the standing room section at the front wall. Squash is very popular in the New York area and is growing throughout the nation and the ToC is the beacon that brings together all this positive energy.”
Last year, Egypt’s Nour El Sherbini, 25, made history by becoming the first four-time women’s champion, equaling the men’s record-setting four titles earned in the modern era by Canadian star Jonathon Power from 1996 to 2002. South American superstar Diego Elias, 26, of Peru won his first ToC title last year, a PSA World Tour victory that boosted the “Peruvian Puma” to the World No. 1 ranking in May 2023. Elias is likely to meet current World No. 1 and two-time ToC Champion Ali Farag of Egypt in the final, if the two rivals uphold their seedings.
Off court, the ToC will celebrate its annual Women’s Leadership program benefiting the College Squash Association on Thursday, January 18. During the 200+ person luncheon at the Yale Club of NYC, legendary Princeton Women’s Coach Gail Ramsay will be honored with the 2024 Tournament of Champions Women’s Leadership Award.
Squash fans can take advantage of group discounts and special sessions at the ToC including Dunlop Kids Day, Ladies Night, and the JP Morgan Fan Experience.
