Super Series Finals 2008

The Super Series Finals bring together some of the world's top squash players, pitting the top eight qualifiers from the annual PSA Super Series World Tour against each other in a five-day championship. 2008 saw this prestigious event return to its home for eight years, the Broadgate Arena in the City of London. Sponsored by ATCO, the Finals took place between the 19th and 23rd May 2008. Among the finalists were world number one player Amr Shabana and the main challenger to this title, the 2006 and 2007 Finals champion Ramy Ashour. In the end, though, it was the Frenchman Gregory Gaultier who won the 2008 Super Series Finals, beating Egypt's Shabana 11/9, 11/08, 11/8. The winners trophy was commissioned specially for the event from Uppermost and is a superb silver plated trophy cup with double plinth base. The runners-up trophy was a magnificent silver plated trophy bowl with fluted decoration set on a solid mahogany plinth. Uppermost also supplied a curved glass frame with a photograph of the Finals contestants and engraved with event details.
