If you live in, or will be visiting New York, between January 7th and 14th, you might want to stop by Grand Central Terminal to watch the world’s best squash players compete in the J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions.
The only world-class sporting event held annually in Grand Central Terminal, the ToC is played on a specially constructed four-walled glass court under the chandeliers in Vanderbilt Hall. With stadium seating for 500 and a free standing-room area for commuters and passersby tempted to catch a later train, the ToC is the largest squash spectator event in the world, drawing more than 200,000 viewers annually. More information and tickets can be found http://www.tocsquash.com.

I checked out the ticket prices, and they begin at $8 for initial matches, and go all the way to $400 for the finals.
I really like these events at Grand Central. A few months ago, I took a Yoga class also at Vanderbilt Hall – when Grand Central was transformed to Zen Central! (see, A Yoga Class at Grand Central – How Cool is That? #ZenCentral).
