RapidEyeMovers are happy to announce a brand-new video, featuring Commonwealth Gold Medallist and Professional Squash Player, Gina Kennedy using her squash skills in the virtual world of C-Smash VRS.
Gina Kennedy, an accomplished squash player from England, recently teamed up with Open Squash, a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting the sport and making it accessible to all. In a recent video, Kennedy discussed her career highlights, including her gold medal win at the Commonwealth Games and her charity work with Open Squash.
During the video, Kennedy tried out C-Smash VRS, an upcoming game that combines the sport of squash with virtual reality technology. Donning the PSVR2 headset, Kennedy entered a new realm of racket sports and was impressed with the realistic feel of the game. She described C-Smash VRS as “amazing” and said that it provides players with a genuine feel of the real-life sport.
Kennedy, who has been playing squash since she was 9 years old, said that she had never come across anything quite like C-Smash VRS before. She found the game to be fun, entertaining, and exhausting and praised it for its ability to develop hand-eye coordination. Despite not being a gamer at heart, Kennedy said that C-Smash VRS has definitely made her a convert, and she can’t wait to play again. You can check the video out here.
