The Squash Pro Shoot Out is Back!

The Squash Pro Shoot Out returns to Surrey Sports Park next month!

Get ready for a night of high-speed, intense, scintillating squash as some of the world’s top professionals hit our courts.

We caught up with Director of Squash, Jesse Engelbrecht, ahead of the big night to give you an insight as to what you can expect.

What is the Squash Pro Shoot Out?

“The Pro Shoot Out brings high ranking world class players together and puts their skills to the test in an all action, all flair event.

“The rules for the event are not your traditional ones, and encourage an attacking and expressive style of play to entertain the crowd.”

What makes the night so special?

“Pro players are rarely able to put on the style of play you will see at the Pro Shoot Out. During the Pro Tour, players are fighting for ranking, here they are allowed to express themselves.

“The crowd becomes the referee for the night, with charisma and flair on the court becoming more important than just winning points.

“It’s the Twenty20 Cricket of the squash world, fast-paced and action packed.”

Q: Who will be competing on the night?

“We’ve got one of our best ever line ups for this year’s competition, with four of the world’s top 100 on show.

“Adrian Waller – Highest world ranking 24, and recent British Nationals semi-finalist.

“Tom Richard – Highest world ranking 12, recently bested a number of the world’s top 16.

“Nathan Lake – Highest world ranking 44, quarter-finalist at the British Nationals.

“Vini Rodrigues – Highest world ranking 132, 2017 South American Squash Games gold medalist.”

What are you most looking forward to on the night?

“I’ve got a brand new rule up my sleeve for this year which may just change the landscape of the event completely. I’m really looking forward to how the players adapt on the night, and it should provide even more wow-factor for the crowd.”
