England set for biggest celebration of squash in more than a decade

England is gearing up for the largest celebration of squash since 2009 as more than 150 squash clubs open their doors to their communities for World Squash Day this Saturday.

Clubs as far as Falmouth and Sunderland will be staging free taster sessions for beginners throughout the day and encouraging their communities, whatever their age, to get involved.

In Kent, Biddenden Squash Club are inviting kids as young as two from the local nursery to attend a tots session.

Meanwhile, St Peters Club in Lancashire is demonstrating walking squash to encourage older members of the community to get involved and keep fit.

Keir Worth, CEO at England Squash said:

World Squash Day serves as a fantastic springboard for inspiring the nation to step on court and showcase the benefits of squash. We have been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of our clubs to get involved and are expecting thousands of newcomers to the sport this weekend. We would like to thank our partners Karakal and SquashSkills for supporting this year’s campaign.”
