As January almost comes to an end, we were very happy to be part of the 2015 Squash Tournament. We have heard great news about this event in the past, however, nothing beats watching it live. From January 16-23, we had the pleasure to attend an watch the tournament at Grand Central Station.
It was kind of weird to watch a sports event in the middle of a train station hub, however, we expect nothing less from New York City.
For those who are not familiar with the sport, it’s a racquet sport played by either two players which are considered a single match or four players – otherwise known as doubles. Think Tennis, but with a lighter racquet and a hollow ball rather than a circular ball.
Furthermore, the players must alternate hitting the ball into the four corners of the Squash court perimeter.
We had an amazing time getting acquainted with visitors and other participants during the Squash Tournament at Grand Central and definitely learned a lot more about the sport.
Next time we have any issues, perhaps it’s better to meet at the court and squash them out.
Lastly, we want to offer a huge round of applause to Raneem El Welily and Mohamed Welshobagy – both from Egypt for taking the title of this year’s JP Morgan Squash Tournament victories.
