The 11th Canary Wharf Squash Classic will be staged on a stunning Courtwall all glass court situated in the spectacular East Wintergarden.

This state of the art venue was designed by Cesar Pelli and was based on the Wintergardens in New York. It opened in October 2003 and has hosted the Classic ever since.

The event attracts people from many of the Canary Wharf tenants, who enjoy the convenience and impact of having a world-class sporting event staged literally on their doorstep.

The event is designed to provide a corporate vehicle for sponsors, attracting spectators to Canary Wharf and generating media coverage that will present positive images of the venue and the sponsors to regional, national and international audiences.

Spectators get a great view of the action from all around the spectacular glass court, which incorporates highly visible event branding.

Using the very latest all-glass court, with its innovative “contra-dot” system, the event gives the spectators the chance to see the world's best squash players battle it out from all four sides of the court.

Reserved seating is erected on three sides of the court, behind the back wall and the two sidewalls.
