Member's Needs


Member Engagement

When your existing members are motivated they play more often and stay longer. If you have happy, enthusiastic members they renew their memberships, refer their friends and as a result your club membership grows.

Casual Participants

Casual and occasional participants form a large part of the overall squash landscape. They are generally highly engaged and passionate about the game but are not full members - usually because of cost and time. Many casual participants were previously members but the fact was that they weren't playing often enough to see value for their membership. For clubs to (re)engage with casuals, the participant needs to see all the benefits that taking up a squash membership provides. The easiest way to do this is to grow participation by connecting them with others and delivering great experiences.
