PSA launch TV review system

The big screen at Canary Wharf relays the TMO decision
PSA introduces TV Referee at Canary Wharf
A major squash initiative is launched by the PSA this evening at the ISS Canary Wharf Squash Classic with the introduction of a TV referee.

The TMO (Television Match Official) will be able to watch replays of any incidents from a variety of angles before making his or her decision.

Players can ask for a review of decisions which are made for lets, no lets and strokes.

Players will have the opportunity of two reviews per game to the TV official and the decision will be flashed up on the big screen above the glass court at the East Wintergarden venue.

During a tiebreak, each player will have one TV appeal.

In a new move for the game, the non-striker can also request a review.

Alex Gough, Chief Executive Officer of the PSA, said: “This is an exciting new development for the professional game. With the latest enhancements made to the TV coverage, we are able to bring in the technology that will assist referees in one of the fastest games on the planet.

“We will be constantly reviewing the process and other changes may be introduced at a later date.”
