It’s more than a hobby – more than a game – more than a sport. I am WILSON. I love WILSON. Almost as much as you love WILSON. Squash is my life. This is WILSON vs THE WORLD.

Ricocheting off all four walls for one spectacular night only, SQUASH! is a grand tournament like no other – a series of exhibition(ist) squash matches between the athlete and her public challengers. Fast-paced and unapologetically violent, SQUASH! smashes egos, conflicts and rivalries around the court, as contestants struggle in a bizarre cavort of politeness, tension and aggression.

SQUASH! is a fiery showdown that lays all bare for public consumption. Think bright lights, glitter cannons, cheer squads and pure EXCESS!! Don’t miss this epic opportunity to be there when it all goes down.
