New Giza, in Egypt, has been awarded the 2022 World University Squash Championships - the normally biennial International University Sports Federation (FISU) event is scheduled for June 27 to July 3.
Shanghai was due to host the event last year but it was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
At the last hosting in Birmingham in 2018, the team title went to hosts Britain, while English duo Joshua Masters and Lily Taylor won the respective individual men’s and women’s titles.
Egypt also has an impressive record in the event, with past FISU champions Karim Darwish, Ramy Ashour and Raneem El Welily subsequently progressing to the world number one ranking.
"University sport is an important asset of our sport, and we have seen many talented players make their way from University sport into the professional game and this is a pathway we intend to reinforce in the future," said World Squash Federation President Zena Wooldridge.
"We are confident that the FISU World University Championship Squash in Egypt will attract a record number of the best up-and-coming squash players to demonstrate their talents in a country which is currently leading the way for our sport."
