From a mixed exhibition format, it has become the Necker Mauritius Open presented by Beachcomber, a men’s PSA Gold tournament with a $100,000 endowment, which makes it one of the largest in the world squash tournament.
The tournament was scheduled to take place from August 18th to 22nd 2020 at the Cote d’Or Multisports Complex, which was inaugurated during the summer of 2019 to host the Indian Ocean Island Games.
It has been rescheduled to June 2021 next year due to Covid 19 restrictions.

In line with the tournament, the RM Club Mauritius Squash Open, a free leisure tournament open to all, will take place with players from Reunion Island, Madagascar, France and of course Mauritius.
A Women’s Squash Challenge is also planned, with 4 players from the international circuit who will compete against each other to raise money for charity.

The Professional Squash Association has confirmed that the Necker Mauritius Open 2020 Presented by Beachcomber has been cancelled due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
The PSA World Tour Gold tournament - which was rescheduled to take place between August 18-22 following the suspension of the PSA World Tour due to the pandemic - would have been the first PSA event to take place on the picturesque island.
The PSA has been working closely with the tournament promoters in order to hold the tournament following the disruption to the PSA World Tour, but border restrictions in place in Mauritius mean that a decision has been made to cancel the tournament, with the intention of holding the inaugural Mauritius Open in June 2021 instead.
