The Professional Squash Association (PSA) are delighted to announce that they are supporting Women’s Squash Week, which takes place between Friday September 16 – Sunday September 25, and are inviting women across the world to jump on court.
A worldwide celebration of women who play squash, Women’s Squash Week began in 2008 as a US Squash-backed initiative, and aims to motivate women to get on court in order to reap both the fitness and social benefits of the sport.
After starting out as a ‘Women’s Squash Night’ in the United States, the initiative has developed into an international celebration, with dedicated events being held throughout the week, inviting more women to get involved with the sport.
In addition to US Squash, Women’s Squash Week is partnered with England Squash’s ‘Squash Girls Can’ programme and the Ireland-based Women Who Squash programme.
Over 100 clubs will host women of all ages and skill levels in social round robins, doubles and ‘queen of the court’-style events in far-reaching locations such as Baltimore, Connecticut, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle Washington D.C, Canada, the Caribbean, Ireland and England.
