Your gift to Squash in BC really does have an impact.

With your generous support, the game will continue to flourish.

“I really liked the opportunity to referee some games – it helped me learn the game better and I found it fun. It was a challenge but a good challenge. What I didn’t like so much was that the players were so much better. I wish there were more kids at my level to play so the games could be a bit more even”.  Adam Kostiw (9 year old participant in first Junior Pathways event at VRC)

Remember the first time you picked up a racquet? Or entered your first tournament? And the gut wrench you felt when you had to ref your first tournament and you didn’t know a let from a stroke?

We’ve all been there and we keep coming back.

If you play squash, or used to, you know how much it impacted your life, in a very positive way. 45 minutes of heart beating exercise, great comradery on and off the court, reffing and coaching skills and an incredible community of friends, who eventually become family. We are healthier, happier people because we play squash. We have a broad, tight group of friends who play squash (or watch and think they play!) We mentor the young ones, we help the injured ones, we show up to volunteer and we love every single minute.

Our lives are enriched. Our bodies are strong. Our families are healthier through the power of the sport.

We are striving to build capacity to grow squash in BC. You can help. Share your passion for the sport through a financial contribution. Your donation to Squash in British Columbia will assist in increasing participation in squash, provide access to courts and coaching and create memories as we continue to play, compete, coach, ref or simply hang out and enjoy the game.
