Here come the girls. Special court treatment in between games of the ROWE British Grand Prix. Sell-out crowds and online chat rooms covering the event showed their enthusiasm for a new internationalSPORTgroup initiative – the introduction of female models to help with the onsite presentation of the championship. As well as introducing the players, the girls also acted as attendants on the ASB all-glass court between games. Event compere Sue Wright, the former England international and world No3, enthused: “The crowd loved it – and at the end of the day it’s all about providing entertainment around the squash.
“It’s all the trimmings that make the difference between it being an average event – and a world-class event. It’s all about upping the profile,” said the Commonwealth Games gold medallist and four-time British champion.
