UNIVERSALSPORTSCLUB CLASSIC PREVIEW
OWENS SET FOR
Although this tournament has Classic in the title, it is in fact a brand new tournament on the WISPA schedule. Universalsportsclub (all one word) is, as you've probably guessed, a new about-to-be-launched website which will soon service European followers and players of tennis, golf, badminton and squash. (So Ron Beck, Squashtalk's webmaster can heave a sigh of relief). They claim they will offer 'a whole new sports experience' which, in addition to covering 82 European events, will feature interactive teaching sections.Cassie Campion will be the featured player for squash.
Owens is top seed followed by Sarah Fitz-Gerald, Tania Bailey and Natalie Grainger. The 16 player qualification list was decimated by withdrawals which meant most of the reserves got into today's (Monday) qualifying round to decide which four players go through to the first round.
