Interactive Squash is really flying high. The pop-art techno start-up, whose mission is to make squash fun with moving murals and coloured targets on the front wall, is teaming up with ASB to install a glass show court at Munich Airport for a two-week period in April 2017.
The glass court, usually reserved for professional tournaments, will be accessible to regular players and beginners, no matter what their age or skill level.
A statement claims: “InteractiveSQUASH is transforming existing courts into technologically-advanced training facilities. Utilising a projector and several cameras, InteractiveSQUASH is a platform that consists of over 20 games and training modules.
“The goal is to introduce the game to a brand new generation of players and help improve the way seasoned veterans train. Our main objective is to help grow the sport. By integrating technology into the traditional squash court, we’re adapting squash for the 21st century.”
The court at Munich Airport can be booked hourly from April 19-28 between 9am and 10pm. There will be free slots between 11am-2pm and 7pm to 9pm.
The court will be located in the Munich Airport Center between Terminals 1 and 2. Interactive Squash will be hosting a variety of events including appearances from professional squash players, mini-tournaments, and game and training tutorials.
ASB courts have been installed in many exciting locations for major tournaments, most famously at the Pyramids of Giza.

Rackets, courtesy of Unsquashable, will be provided free of charge, and the standard white squash ball specially designed for glass courts will also be provided.
