Help People Fall In Love With Squash So They Choose To Play It

Before someone else can love squash they need to know more about it. The hardest part can be getting started. There are the rules, the different types of ball and then there's the lingo - boast, drop, volley, lob... All of this can be intimidating for prospective players. Share our new simple approach with a family member, friend or colleague to guarantee that their first squash steps are not their last.

The Try It. Play It. Love It. Promotional Platform Is Growing

Evidence suggests the Try It. Play It. Love It. marketing materials have been a success so far. To date, more than 1,400 people have visited the website page and are now helping people fall in love with squash so they choose to play it. A huge thank you to all participating clubs, other facilities and their people for the support and effort towards breaking down the barriers that new people face, whilst positively promoting the game of squash in a fun and welcoming manner for both existing and lapsed members.
