Court Innovation for EuroClubs

In the course of the championship a brand new Courtwall Innovation Professional Tournament Glass Court will be installed in the Top Hotel Congress Hall, where some pool matches will be played and the finals of the championship will be played.

Since 2003 Courtwall has offered the ProView Professional dot system, a special decal treatment incorporating a ceramic double-dot system (usually blue/blue shade over black, but other colours are available) that provides optimal vision for players and spectators.

The technology works best if 70% of light density is focused on court area, and outside of court is less light. The ceramic decal dots are fused/burned to the glass during the hardening process, creating a proper play wall surface with tension and a surface that cannot be degraded by racquets, sweat, glass cleaner, etc.

It is necessary to have such a treatment applied to the glass, for players to have an accurate view of the ball while spectators are able to enjoy watching play on the court, getting a “clear glass effect”.

This all glass court is available both as permanent installed and portable model. The portable Courtwall Innovation tournament glass court is designed with the minimum number of unique glass panels; this allows cost-effective maintenance of spares, an important factor in a court that is to be erected and demounted regularly.

The Courtwall professional tournament glass court has been successfully used for many squash tournaments around the globe within the last decade, such as Saudi Arabia Open, Kuwait Open, Tournament of Champions New York Grand Central Station (2006-2012), US Open (2006-2012), Canary Wharf London Open (2005-2012), Women Team World Championship 2003, Bermuda Squash Open, Australian Squash Open (Canberra 2011-2012), and many others.

During the European Clubteam Championship in Prague Courtwall Innovation will present an improved 2012 version of the court. The main new features is a new back wall/door construction to improve visibility for spectators, new installation fittings for front/sidewall made out of clear hi-tech plastic polyamid improving visibility for spectators and complete new colour layout from glass front and side wall in two blue shades, for best possible contrast of white ball.
