Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Squash

Oxenford, Gold Coast Area

5 – 15 April 2018 - 

Indicative Rate * AU$10 to AU$40

Watch intently as the small rubber ball travels at speeds of up to 280 kilometres per hour. The players use their speed, agility and reflexes to hit the ball and outmanoeuvre their opponent. Squash is a fast paced racket sport played on a four walled court where concentration, acceleration and anticipation can prove the difference.

Oxenford Studios will host the Squash competition at GC2018 and provide fans with thrill-a-minute viewing. All four walls of the show court are all-glass, giving spectators the opportunity to see the action from all angles. Both singles and doubles events will be showcased, with the rare doubles event a feature of the GC2018 format. Nothing will be missed as the ball flies around the court, ricocheting off walls at high speed. Players change direction with amazing agility. Just as quickly they strike the ball with their racket using a lightning snap of their wrists. In April 2018 you will see why these players are regarded as some of the fittest athletes in the world.
