Birmingham New Street station to host all-glass squash court

An all-glass squash show-court is to be constructed inside Birmingham’s New Street train station.

The court will be in the station’s main concourse, which sees a daily footfall of 170,000 people, between April 4 and 9.

The Professional Squash Association (PSA), as part of the Squash United by Birmingham 2022 project, said it will play a major role in the lasting legacy of squash at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

England Squash CEO Mark Williams said: “The glass court event, combined with all the other projects and ideas Squash United are leading on, will have a big impact on promoting the sport to new and diverse audiences.

“Squash United has shown us the blueprint for how we can have a big impact in a short space of time. The really exciting question therefore, is what else can we achieve across the game by working together?”
