Record Ticket Sales

Reports indicate that the 2022 Commonwealth Games will achieve record ticket sales, according to British Sports Minister Nigel Huddleston.

An article on the superb Inside The Games website revealed that more more than 1.3 million tickets have been sold for Birmingham 2022, making it the best attended edition of the Commonwealth Games ever to take place in Britain.

Glasgow 2014 had previously held the British record, but Birmingham 2022 has now moved ahead of them following a surge in demand for tickets.

According to Birmingham 2022, more than 500,000 tickets have been snapped up by people living in the West Midlands.

TV Scandal

With so many top matches on the schedule today, let’s hope that squash features more prominently on the BBC coverage after being ignored for almost three days.

Rod Gilmour’s article on the BBC’s response to complaints from the squash community drew a lot of traffic to the site yesterday, so thanks to all those who popped in to see us. We hope you will stick around for the best coverage of the Games.

Party time in Amsterdam

Good luck to all those squash players staggering home from a massive party weekend in Amsterdam as the Junkies Festival celebrated its 25th anniversary.

The winners were the Dutch team Casanovas, led by Tessa ter Sluis, who beat Scots team AirTight1 in yesterday’s final. The winning squad included: Marc ter Sluis (PSA), Frank Goossens, Roel Zwagerman, Tom Lucas (SBN director), Bjarni Kemperman, Bart Hostman and Tessa Ter Sluis (PSA).

Must get a Squash Mad team together for next year!
