The French Squash Federation and ASB created a spectacular – and unique – vision of three all-glass squash courts at the Palais Des Sports in the city of Mulhouse for the 24th staging of the WSF Men’s World Team Squash Championship, held in France for the first time in its 46-year history.
31 nations from all five continents competed over the week-long championship – the matches were played simultaneously on three ASB ShowGlassCourts lined up side-by-side.
“This is the best set-up I have ever seen – wow!” said Scotland’s national coach Roger Flynn, while England’s world No3James Willstrop exclaimed: “The set-up here is almost revolutionary – I’ve never seen anything like it before, with three glass courts side-by-side. It’s squash moving forward, proving that it can do things in different ways – something other sports can’t do.”
World Squash Federation President N Ramachandran, who presented the trophy to England after the final, said: “The value of all initiatives and innovations introduced into squash over the past few years were brilliantly demonstrated in the presentation of the Championship in Mulhouse.
