Squash enthusiasts across Victoria remain keen for a major Horsham tournament to go ahead – but later this year.
The latest COVID-19 lockdown forced officials to postpone the Horsham masters event last weekend and pencil in September 10 to 12 as an alternative.

Victorian Masters Squash Association is working with Horsham Squash Club on rescheduling.
Horsham club president Tim Hopper said there was a general determination for the event to go ahead, pending restrictions.
He said expectations were that 85 players from across Victoria would have taken part in the three-day event last weekend.
“We definitely want to make it happen. It is a big money-spinner for the club, especially in our efforts to recover from COVID-19,” he said.
“It also helps put Horsham on the map in the squash world and helps local businesses.”
Mr Hopper said event organisers had booked Horsham’s Sylvania Park function centre to a COVID-19 capacity before the lockdown announcement.
“Hopefully we go ahead in September to help them recover some of the losses,” he said.
