By ALAN THATCHER – Squash Mad Editor

With World Squash Day six weeks away, England Squash are leading the way with their support for a massive global project designed to grow participation numbers.

At the time of writing, 120 clubs have signed up to take part in events design to attract new players to a sport renowned for its enormous health and fitness benefits.

World Squash Day takes place on Saturday October 12th and England Squash have teamed up with leading brand Karakal to offer clubs a massive equipment bag containing 18 rackets plus a £250 grant to be used for ongoing development projects.

In a statement, England Squash said: “We are thrilled to see so many clubs in England have signed up to host a World Squash Day event. We have set an ambitious target to engage 5,000 people on court on the day and those clubs involved will play a key role in achieving this.

“In the lead-up to the big day, we are supporting clubs with our enhanced World Squash Day toolkit which features a host of downloads and resources to support and promote their activities – from top tips on staging a successful event to downloadable social media images and proposed posts.

“We are also offering clubs the chance to apply for a £250 grant to kick-start new activities post their World Squash Day events.

“For any clubs who have not registered a World Squash Day event with us there’s still time, along with the opportunity to receive £400 worth of kit from our World Squash Day partner Karakal.”

To register a World Squash Day event in England, and to access the toolkit, clubs can visit englandsquash.com/worldsquashday

The ambitious Brackley club, in Northamptonshire, are planning a special campaign around World Squash Day.

They have launched a crowd-funding scheme to add at least two new courts and aim to raise £70,000 before World Squash Day via this link: https://www.gofundme.com/f/1q7sxwxt9c
