Five Lucky Amateur Squash Players Will Win Chance of a Lifetime Against Former World #1 in Glass Court Challenge at Grand Central

NEW YORK CITY – December 19, 2013— Calling all squash players— Red Bull athlete Karim Darwish, world #6 ranked squash champion and one of the greatest Egyptian players of all time, wants you to take your best shot against him at Grand Central Terminal on Thursday, January 16, 2014.

It is the dream of every professional squash player to play on the iconic glass court in Grand Central Terminal in the sport’s Super Bowl – the J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions.  Now NYC squash players have the opportunity to test their prowess on that very court against one of the sport’s toughest players.

Kicking off the 17th annual J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions one day before the world’s best male and female athletes descend on Grand Central, Karim Darwish will compete against 10 amateur squash players on the four-walled glass squash court in Vanderbilt Hall, each to play a 5-point match. The task is daunting, the goal is simple: score points for pride and prizes against the indomitable Darwish, who has maintained an unbroken presence in the world top ten since October 2007.

Five players will be chosen at random to win the opportunity to join five additional pre-selected contenders for the chance of a lifetime to play on the ToC glass court against the Egyptian champion, each vying to see who can rack up the most points against Darwish. A grand prize will be awarded to any player who can earn three points and defeat Darwish; bragging rights and secondary prizes will be earned by any player who scores any points against the former world #1.

Players can enter online here for a chance to compete against Red Bull athlete Karim Darwish on the Tournament of Champions glass court.
