National Squash Centre
Costing approximately £3.5m, the facilities include six courts and one glass-walled show court (this alone cost £110,000). The show court is moveable: it floats on air like a hovercraft and can be positioned in the athletics hall for all major tournaments. The show court has a maximum capacity of 1,200.
All of the courts are 'state of the art', with the ability to convert into either singles or doubles courts at the touch of a button.
The Centre has hosted the British National Squash Championships since 2003, the Men's World Open 2008, the Women's World Open 2008 and hosts the annual British Grand Prix, a PSA World Series event.
