The PSA World Series Squash Finals was the end of season championship of the PSA World Tour of male professional squash players and of the WSA World Tour (since 2012) of female professional squash players. The 2018 PSA World Series Squash Finals is currently being held in Dubai at the Emirates Golf Club (5 - 9 June 2018). The top eight players in the PSA World Series and WSA World Series qualified for the event.

The eight players compete in two groups of four and play a round robin[1] to determine the semi-finalists. The competition then becomes a knock-out competition to determine the World Series Finals champions. The event has been staged since 1993 in Zurich, Hatfield, London and Manchester and then London again before switching to Dubai in 2016. The Queen's Club in Palliser Road, London, is known for its racket sports events and in tennis also hosts the pre-Wimbledon Aegon Championships each June.[2] The event has prize money of $160,000. In 2012 the event added a women's section 2011 and 2013 has seen the women compete again during the day session, with the men competing in the evening session.[3] The first edition of the women's competition was won by Nicol David.[4]

After 2017-18 PSA World Tour season, it was replaced by PSA World Tour Finals.
