This is the first time this event has been held and it will be played at Mayfair Lakeshore one of the premier fitness and racquet facilities in Canada boasting 13 glass backed squash courts and a doubles court. This location close to downtown Toronto as well as the famous Beaches area of Toronto make it a fun place to host an event of this caliber where players can enjoy great amenities both on and off the court.

 
This inaugural event is boasted by the offering of prize money for the top finishers! 
 
 
 
 
DRAW FORMAT
The Championships will use a single elimination main draw format, a playoff for 3rd/4th, and a full feed-in consolation, where draw size dictates, a quarter finalist consolation, and with all competitors guaranteed a minimum of three matches. Two possible exception exist:
  • If there are 16 to 7 entries, the format will be a 16-player draw featuring a top and bottom bracket with playoffs that will play down to all places, 1 through to 16. As a condition of entry, players must commit to playing all matches for placement.
  • If there are 4 to 6 entries, the format will be round-robin.
