Iconic "Glass Cube" Returns To San Francisco For NetSuite Open

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Having captivated squash fans at the great Pyramids in Egypt, New York's Grand Central Terminal, the Field Museum in Chicago, Boston's Symphony Hall and the Hong Kong Harbor, the "Glass Cube", with its two-way glass, will bring a new-if only temporary-architectural look to San Francisco's waterfront September 25-October 1 for the 2013 NetSuite Open Squash Championships, NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / Enterprise Resource Planning ( ERP) and omnichannel commerce software suites, and Event Engine jointly announced today.

The NetSuite Open became the first international professional squash event on the West Coast to use the iconic portable glass court when it made its Northern California debut for the 2012 tournament on the South Lawn at Justin Herman Plaza. The 18,000-pound, 32-by-21 foot court made by McWIL Courtwall has walls of half-inch tempered glass with a special ceramic frit dot fired into the interior surface that allows the players to see a colored, nearly opaque wall while spectators outside the court view through clear glass.

"I can't think of a better view: the best squash players in the world competing on San Francisco's beautiful waterfront," said Evan Goldberg , NetSuite's co-founder, Chief Technology Officer and Chairman of the Board.  "This year's view will be even more spectacular for our fans since we've repositioned the court to have the Bay Bridge and its amazing light show in the background."

"The McWIL Courtwall all-glass Show Court uses a patented one-way viewing system on three walls to provide perfect ball visibility to the players while enabling both the public and reserved seat ticket holders to experience world class squash from all angles," said David Carr , Founder and President of McWIL Courtwall.

The "Glass Cube" will become world renown if squash is selected for the 2020 Olympic Games, as it will allow the host city to create a unique venue quite easily. It has such fan amenities as an electronic scoreboard, a 42-inch TV, two 50-inch LCD screens and a six-speaker sound system.
