Tournament of Champions. Grand Central Station.


If you get the chance pop down to Grand Central Station in Manhattan’s midtown this week for a sneaky peep at the top professional squash players of the whole world. If you have not already seen a match played at world-class pace you NEED to see this. A entirely glass court has been constructed in Vanderbilt Hall, just off the main hallway (you know the one. The big clock bit where people do flash mobs like ALL the time).

Tournament of Champions 2012. I think you will see why squash absolutely deserves to be an Olympic Sport. Wait…. it isn’t an Olympic Sport? What? You are kidding me right? No seriously. Why is that?
