Women’s Squash Week 2019 got off to an early start this year with the first-ever Women’s Squash Week: Pop Up Edition, bringing female squash players together on and off court, May 10-19.
More than 150 players organized and took part in twelve events held in seven states and women of all ages and skill levels participated in organized play and social events.
MSquash in Port Chester, New York, held a special Mother’s Day event as their Pop Up. Massachusetts Squash attracted more than forty women to Harvard’s Murr Squash Center, and more than thirty women participated at Squash on Fire in the nation’s capital.
“The US Squash Women’s Committee had been looking to develop events in the spring time frame to build momentum throughout the year,” said Jen Gabler, US Squash Women’s Committee Co-Chair. “Many traditional squash strongholds responded positively, and we look forward to more regions and cities joining the movement as we host this new event annually.”
Held during the end of the traditional squash season, the local pop ups were inspired by the growing success and participation in women’s squash week, which is held at the beginning of the season every September.
