New York offers many unusual sports venues, and this is one of our favorites: a full squash court in the middle of Grand Central during the Tournament of Champions. All the action is in full view of passersby along with arena seating for 500. Squash is an international sport with more than 15 million players in 120 countries, including 400,000 in the U.S. It’s estimated that last year 200,000 New York commuters thrilled to the game as balls zoomed at speeds up to 175 mph. This is the 17th year for the tournament, which showcases the top squash players in the world.
