The iconic J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions returns to Grand Central Station, bringing the best squash players on the planet to New York City to vie for the coveted title of the world’s largest squash spectator event. Event being held January 17th-24th. Playing on the four-walled glass court under the Terminal’s spectacular chandeliers is the dream of every professional squash player. John Nimick, President of Squash Engine, Inc., the tournament promoter, “For the first time in the tournament’s prestigious history dating back to 1930, and with resounding support from the NYC squash community, the ToC will offer top level world ranking draws for both men and women.” The combination of the perennial sold-out stadium seating, and the public viewing available on the front wall makes the J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions the largest squash spectator event in the world.
For what to wear on the court, we put together a collection of versatile squash attire and equipment, then asked Greg Reiss, our great friend and most excellent coach at Millbrook School, for advice in choosing a racquet. “Lightweight racquets are still the rage, even at the top pro level of the game. One excellent choice is the Biomimetic Evolution 120, the first ever racket developed by Dunlop to specifically complement the ladies squash game. The 120 benefits from the power enhancing tear drop head geometry and reduced torsional twist as a result of the small throat bridge. The weight and balance have been fine tuned by leading female pro players to deliver the specific playability demanded by women at the top of their game.”
