US SQUASH

Get Involved in Women’s Squash Week 2016

Womens squash week_2016-03

Join women around the United States, Canada and Europe for the fifth annual Women’s Squash Week. Use this experience as a time to promote the game of squash and get to know other women squash players in your surrounding area. Beginners–also use this as a time to learn more about the game!

Women’s squash nights help to dramatically increase local tournament and league play along with the number of women seen on court at the clubs on a daily basis. They provide a welcoming and social introduction for those beginner players which in turn helps to build a strong community of women’s players.

Last year’s Women’s Squash Week saw record numbers with more than 1, 500 women participating twenty-seven cities across eighteen states within the U.S. as well as five cities in Canada and two in England, and the event’s fifth year aims to continue the upward trend.

Last year also saw the introduction of social media with a US Squash Women’s group Facebook page and #WSW2015 being used to build a national supportive women’s squash community. Reports came in from all over the country on Women’s Squash Week activities and successful events are now being shared nationwide.

All WSW events will be listed daily on the Women’s Squash facebook page so stay tuned!

And remember it is not too late to register. You can enter on-site or register here.
