We believe in order to grow Squash, both partners and collaborations are the way forward to help the sport become more appealing for young people of all backgrounds.
As an organisation with a team from a variety of different industries, along with a passion for Squash, we have the expertise to help your existing provision in your local community.
In recent years, Squash provision in local communities has declined due to funding issues or a lack of local interest.
However, the most common is seeing a Squash court being converted into a new fitness studio or making way for an extension of an existing fitness suite.
What this means, is young people from particular communities could miss out on taking up Squash and learning about the benefits of the sport, when it comes to community cohesion and most importantly health & wellbeing of everybody in the local community.
