The pinnacle of the squash calendar returned to the Queen's Club from 2nd - 6th January 2013 for the fourth consecutive year and once again, Corporate Events were on hand to ensure that the sound, lighting and video relay was perfect.
Played on the spectacular 'Z-Court', which has been designed to ensure uninterrupted 360 degree views of the high-octane action through use of the latest technology in glass construction, the challenge for Corporate Events was to create an exciting and dynamic lighting and audio support service to the main event. We designed, created and installed a production solution that allowed for the players to be introduced to the crowd in a manner befitting a heavyweight boxing fight, with high energy music and lights setting the scene for the battle ahead, adding to a charged atmosphere generated by an attentive audience and live TV crews.
Eight of the greatest male and female players in the squash World went head to head to decide who would be crowned champions after five days of action. The squash elite were split into two pools of four with all male eight players competing on each of the first three days of the tournament. Currently those heading the PSA World Series and almost certain to qualify for Queen's include current World No. 1 James Willstrop.
Corporate Events technical production manager Adam Harris comments "While working over Christmas is unfortunate, Queens Club is a globally recognized destination venue, so making a production work here, under the gaze of a global TV audience adds a degree of challenge."
Managing Director Andrew Ashley concludes: "It's that challenge we like at Corporate Events - how we design and create unique experiences for our clients keeps our proposition fresh and exciting every time, and to be back at Queens again in 2013 is a great testimonial to the service levels our technical crew provide".
