There is a good balance of international, national and locally based professionals in what is a very strong draw. The popular Jan Van Den Herrewegen returns to defend his title and is the number 1 seed. The talented and rising Frenchman Victor Cruin is the number 2 seed and will give a strong challenge. Local favourite Jaymie Haycocks (5 seed) is playing again and is joined by Chris Halland Josh Owen from Sutton. Patrick Rooney, always popular with the Sutton crowd returns as 3rdseed, and Mike Harris, a past finalist also is back at the Highbridge Road club.

The organisers have been keen to support local and emerging talent and were delighted to offer wildcards to Birmingham pro Jack Turney and the very exciting junior Sam Todd. Sam is a serious talent and it will not be long before he is gracing courts even more hallowed than those of Sutton!

As always, and as seen by how many pros return each year, Sutton will be putting on the warmest of welcomes to both players and spectators. The main court has bleacher seating giving great viewing for up to 70 people and the second court has a glass back and upstairs balcony. The bar will of course be open throughout the tournament and there will be a social on Wednesday 21stNovember as it is the busiest evening of play.

All are welcome, and entry is free all week to what is becoming a firm favourite on the local and national squash calendar.
