In a unique legacy of last year’s Pan American Games in Toronto, a pioneering new ASB squash court concept has been installed in the city of Moncton in the Canadian province of New Brunswick.
The ASB EventGameCourt features three ASB System100 courts equipped with two movable side walls which can easily be moved either to extend singles squash courts into doubles courts, or convert a dedicated squash facility into an open arena for multi-sport usage.
Its unique feature, however, is that the ASB EventGameCourt is designed to be installed, dismantled and re-installed numerous times. The court is aimed at clients that require a temporary installation (e.g. for an event with a large crowd) before placing the court in a new location for permanent use.
The new Moncton courts were originally installed at the Toronto Exhibition Centre for the Pan Am Games (pictured above) in July last year.
“The world-class ASB modular glass back convertible 3-court unit has created ‘squash-a-mania’ in Eastern Canada,” said Lolly Gillen, President of Squash Canada. “A legacy from the 2015 PanAm Games in Toronto, these courts have generated tremendous awareness of squash not only within the Moncton Squash Club and the city of Moncton but throughout New Brunswick and the Atlantic provinces.
“Squash Canada is incredibly grateful for the Government of Canada’s foresight and investment in squash. What a golden opportunity to grow and market squash by offering an opportunity to play on the same courts as did our triumphant Men and Women’s Teams, the World Junior Champion Diego Elias, Colombia’s world No.5 Miguel Angel Rodriguez and USA’s world No.8 Amanda Sobhy.”
The Squash Moncton club was selected by Squash Canada ahead of several other clubs across Canada to win the “Pan Am Legacy Courts”. Jan Prieditis, Squash Moncton’s manager and pro, says the new courts will help the club attract some of the country’s top talent.
