2021 European Team Championships in Finland to be held inside one of the largest malls in Europe

The Finnish Squash Association will organise the European Team Championships next spring at the end of April-May. The main stage of the competitions, a full-glass squash court, will be build inside the Mall of Tripla cultural square, which is located in connection with Pasila railway station. The rest of the matches will be played in Talihalli in Pitäjänmäki.

Satisfaction shines from the face of Mika Monto, Executive Director of the Finnish Squash Association.

One of Squash’s great opportunities has always been to take the glass court to the finest places possible. There have been courts in Egypt with the pyramids, New York’s Grand Central Station, and several malls around the world. Now we get to play squash at a venue, which is like made for our event and where we are able to present our sport to the general public better than before. Our goal is to make the games memorable for both players and the public".

Kati Kivimäki, Mall of Tripla's shopping center director, is also pleased to have the European Team Championships in the shopping center.

 “It’s great to have the European Championships in squash at the Mall of Tripla and build a unique entity in an urban setting. We look forward to squash professionals and the public enjoying the tournament atmosphere at Tripla.”

36 teams (20 men’s and 16 women’s) from 22 countries will participate in the European Team Championships. There will be a total of about 200 players in the event, including the best players of the continent. The best players expected in Finland are Camille Serme from France (WR 4.) and Sarah-Jane Perry from England (WR 6.). On the men’s side, the highest world rankings are currently held by Simon Rösner of Germany (WR 8.) and Joel Makin of Wales (WR 10.).

Finnish men's and women's teams play in the top division. The women’s goal from the home event is a medal, on the men’s side the goal is among the top six. Tickets for the European Championships will be on sale at the end of the year.
