European Club Championship 13-16 September ,Paderborn, Germany
With the European Club Championship of the Squasher (ECC) the Paderborner SC will write a new chapter in the book of his glorious history.
This much should already be established, a few days before the opening. Whether or not it will ultimately become a sporting success is, of course, not yet decided by the strong competition. Although the PSC's rivals are the German top-flight players Simon Rösner and Raphael Kandra, PSC President Andreas Preising and manager Norman Farthing are talking about their "sport". "We want to offer the top athletes in squash the appropriate stage to present themselves," says Norman Farthing. And that the PSC can do that, he has often proved impressively enough in the past. It is therefore no wonder that 22 women and men's teams from 14 countries have registered for the ECC 2017. A resonance, which can also be attributed, of course, to the Glascourt, which will once again be built in the middle of the Ahorn Sportpark after the 2011 World Championship. 600 spectators will be found in the grandstands around the Glascourtplatz. Of course, the tickets for the four-day event (Wednesday 13th to Saturday 16th September) can already be bought or reserved. "The demand is gratifyingly very large," says Farthing, who expects an almost sold-out house on all days. That's why he advises all squash fans to get tickets as soon as possible if you want to track the games on the centercourt. Day passes are available (reduced) from as little as four euros; VIP cards including catering are available from 80 euros. It will be played in the preliminary round from Wednesday, also in the other places of the PSC facility. The four sporting days are framed by a sports and fitness fair and various stands with culinary delights.
