Seven Network to air World Junior Championships & City Tattersalls Group Australian Open

Published Thu 13 Jul 2023

Squash Australia is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Seven Network that will see Australia’s two premier squash events of the year broadcast live and free on 7plus.

In a landmark deal for the sport, all Australians will have the opportunity to view daily highlights packages from this month’s World Junior Championships on Seven’s free streaming and catch up platform 7plus.

The tournament runs from 18 to 29 July and will be held at Melbourne Sports Centres.

The deal will also see 7plus broadcast November’s 2023 City Tattersalls Group Australian Open in Sydney which will attract some of the best senior players from across the globe.

Full viewing schedules will be available closer to the commencement of both events.

Squash Australia CEO Robert Donaghue said the deal was another exciting step forward for the sport on the road to the Victoria 2026 Commonwealth Games.

“The World Junior Championships and the City Tattersalls Group Australian Open are the two biggest events on the Australian squash calendar for 2023 and it’s incredibly exciting that anyone who cannot make it to the tournaments can see the action live and free on 7plus,” said Donaghue. 

“Many of the sport’s greatest players including our own Rachael Grinham and Sarah Fitz-Gerald have won the World Junior Championships before dominating the senior ranks, so this month’s tournament in Melbourne provides a window to the world class players of tomorrow.

“We’re getting even further down the road to Victoria 2026 and together with the World Squash Federation and Professional Squash Association, Squash Australia continues to reinvigorate the sport in this country and providing access for everyone to watch our most prestigious events forms an important part of our strategy.”

The 2023 World Junior Championships take place from 18 to 29 July in Melbourne.

The 2023 City Tattersalls Group Australian Open takes place from 8 to 12 November in Sydney.
