What is it?
The Boston Open began in 1997 to celebrate the opening of the club's new rainbow courts, which made it the first club in the UK to have National Lottery funded rainbow courts. The club more than succeeded in its goal of attracting some nationally ranked players, and the event has continued ever since.
From 2000-2017, it linked in with the BSPA Tour, which was a huge success. The Boston Open became the longest running event on the tour, although the BSPA announced it would discontinue after the 2017/18 season.
Despite this, the club continues to run the tournament as a PSA Satellite event.
Over the years, the club has welcomed many players who have gone on to become some of the world's top professionals. James Willstrop, Nick Matthew and Peter Barker have all entered the event in years gone by, and Mohamed El Shorbagy reached the quarter-finals of the 2006 Open. 2019's edition of the tournament featured seven of the top 50 women players in the world.
The Boston Open offers thousands of pounds in prize money every year, and relies on sponsorship to fund the event. Whether you would like to advertise in the popular 28-page programme, or have your business' name incorporated into the event title, there are many different sponsorship packages available. It is a chance for local businesses to associate themselves with a tournament that attracts nationally and internationally ranked players, and naturally the event receives the attention of the local press.
