Your guides to doing it right

Sports organisations are constantly trying to encourage participation, grow memberships, raise funds, attract and retain volunteers, develop coaches, exercise good governance and maintain their facilities. On top of this there are laws and requirements to meet around health and safety, the supply and sale of alcohol and food. Unfortunately research shows few clubs have taken the time to create a planned approach to tackle these areas. Take a look at the new club resources to help you ensure your club is on top of things here.

Squash NZ Case Studies

Squash NZ is continuing the initiative to create a greater community through the sharing of information in Case Studies and is encouraging squash clubs all around the country to share their own success stories. The Squash New Zealand case studies celebrate innovative thinking and success in clubs. It is hoped that other clubs can learn and use the information to implement positive change within their own environment. To view the range of case studies, click here.
