The Professional Squash Association (PSA) has updated its provisional calendar for the remainder of the 2020-2021 World Tour season, pushing back two competitions in Britain.

One of these is the Manchester Open, which is now scheduled to take place from June 7 to 13, having been initially scheduled for April 19 to 25 before it was postponed.

The Allam British Open in Hull - a Platinum event - was set to take place from June 14 to 20, but has now been pushed back until August 16 to 22.

These events were both delayed to allow the chance for more spectators to attend, if coronavirus restrictions are eased as is planned.

Due to the changing nature of the pandemic and limits on international travel, the dates remain subject to change, the PSA stressed.

The PSA World Championships in Chicago have been moved forward by a few days in the latest update also - now set for July 10 to 17, instead of July 14 to 22.

"Scheduling and managing a thriving professional squash circuit against the backdrop of the unprecedented global COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging, so I'd like to thank all of our players and tournament promoters for their support and understanding over the past 12 months and beyond," said PSA chief executive Alex Gough.

"While the remainder of the 2020-2021 season will look slightly different to the one that we envisaged when we initially released our provisional schedule in March of this year, we are extremely pleased that we have been able to postpone the tournaments to later in the year in the hope of enabling our loyal spectators to watch our world-class athletes first-hand."

The El Gouna International Squash Open in Egypt, another Platinum tournament, is still set to take place from May 20 to 28, while the PSA World Tour Finals in Cairo remain timetabled for June 22 to 27.
