Details: In a unique development for world squash the Women’s World Team Championship is to be held on three new state-of-the-art glass show courts.
The initiative by Federation Francaise de Squash will ensure that, for the first time in the events 33-year history, all the teams participating in the event should experience the opportunity of playing on ASB-manufactured all-glass courts.
In previous world team championships, most of the action has taken place on club courts, with only a few teams playing on a single four-glass-walled court leading up to its use for the event’s final rounds.
On the completion of the championship, the all-glass courts will be dismantled and re-erected in the country’s three national training centres.
N Ramachandran, President of the World Squash Federation, said: “This will be a landmark championship. Three state-of-art show courts, so that spectators and broadcast have an even greater opportunity to revel in the atmosphere and competitiveness of our Women’s World Team Championship, mean that November inNimeswill be very special.”
