MANILA, Philippines - The Celebrity Squash Cup 2009 will be held April 18 with a mix of players vying for top honors at the Manila Polo Club in Makati.

Squash, originating in France, is a two-player, high-impact racquet sport game which takes place in a four-walled court. Although more popular in countries such as the United Kingdom and America, the Philippines also has a private local organization, the Squash Rackets Association of the Philippines (SRAP). Established in 1975 and accredited by the World Squash Federation, the SRAP is the national sports association (NSA) for squash in the country.

SRAP is the organizer of Celebrity Squash Cup, through board member Tweetie de Leon-Gonzales.

Celebrity Squash Cup 2009 is sponsored by Nike Philippines, Crocs, Speedo, C2, Collezione, New Balance, Folded & Hung, Supply Oilfield Services, Procter & Gamble, Nestle Philippines and Randy Ortiz.
