Backing equal prize money on International Women’s Day

A host of the world’s top female squash players took the opportunity of International Women’s Day last Sunday to get behind Dr Allam’s initiative to bring equal prize money to the British Open, showing their support  with the powerful message of #MakeItHappen for equal prize money in sport.

The Allam British Open has raised the women’s prize fund year on year,  and has committed to a fully equal prize fund in 2017.

Dr. Allam, who also owns Hull City Football Club, also backed the initiative by posting a photo (centre of the collage) with his grandson Yousef, who is also talented young squash player.
