To celebrate WORLD SQUASH DAY on OCTOBER 13th and help promote both your club and our great game of Squash, IRISH SQUASH urge you to organise a day of activity in your squash club. We encourage you to also fundraise for a local charity during your event to engage the event with your local community.
This is an opportunity to bring your club together and also to promote the club and Squash to the community in your area.
So please organise play in your club on Saturday the 13th of October.
Irish Squash particularly encourage you to organise play for juniors in your club/community, even if they have never played before. Visitors are especially welcome and should be encouraged to come along.
World Squash Day founder Alan Thatcher, a tournament organiser and author from England, is keen to promote the health benefits of playing squash.
He said: “Squash is rated one of the healthiest sports for players of all ages. At a time when many governments are spending a fortune on treating the effects of childhood obesity and a lack of physical activity among middle-aged people, squash can provide the ideal solution.
“Squash burns around 900 calories per hour and the health benefits can last a lifetime for those who continue playing into their 40s, 50s and 60s.
