New home for SquashTV and combined men’s and women’s pro tour
By Squash Mad Reporter
The Professional Squash Association (PSA), the global governing body responsible for the administration of both men’s and women’s professional squash, have unveiled a new state of the art website (www.psaworldtour.com) which will serve as the home of professional squash on the internet and the new home of their online television channel, SquashTV.
The new site, designed by leading web-agency Parallax, has been built using the latest responsive web design technology with improved functionality, design, and navigation and has been optimised for use on all devices to keep squash fans up to date with all the latest information from across the PSA World Tour – including event results, latest news, PSA rankings, image galleries and more.
As part of the ‘Phase One’ launch, the PSA have invested in a brand new platform for SquashTV, the organisation’s online television channel which streams over 300 live matches a year, and will use a brand new player system provided by Ooyala (www.psaworldtour.com/tv).
Further developments are planned for ‘Phase Two’ later in 2015, including complete integration of the Women’s World Tour, following the sport’s announced merger in December 2014.
“We are delighted to see the new PSA World Tour and SquashTV platforms launched this week and are excited about how these two key elements can play a part in the future success of the PSA World Tour,” said PSA Chief Executive Alex Gough.
“We have been working closely with the team at Parallax for the past six months with the aim of improving the user experience across all devices, especially on smartphones and tablets, and creating the most comprehensive and easy-to-use website for squash fans all over the world.
“We have also invested considerably in improving the level of production and service associated with SquashTV and feel that the latest developments regarding this branch of our business will play a pivotal role in ensuring the sport continues to grow in popularity around the world.”
