Come down to our friendly squash club, play sport with women of all ages and abilities and have a hit with six of Britain’s top squash players before they show off their skills in an exciting all-female exhibition at our Squash Girls Can Festival. We can’t wait to welcome you!
Global squash stars including World No.7 Sarah-Jane Perry and four-time British National champion Alison Waters will be inspiring the next generation of female players, together with two-time British Junior Open champion Emily Whitlock, World No.15 Victoria Lust, Wales No.1 Tesni Evans and two-time British National champion Jenny Duncalf.
Secondary school girls from years 7 to 12 are welcome on to court for a free taster session before women and girls in the Warwickshire area try their hand at match play. Then it will be the turn of the pros to light up the court with their finest displays of exhibition squash.
Warwickshire’s own National Squash Champion and Allam British Open finalist Sarah-Jane Perry, 27, said: “It’s a fantastic event which I’m thrilled to be a part of. It will be great to get on court with some of the female players from the area.
“It’s imperative that girls see positive female role models from as young as possible and hopefully we can inspire some to think about playing professionally, but equally just to enjoy playing.”
Baxi Heating has sponsored the event, with the proceeds of the raffle going to Myton Hospice.
Jason Pike, Leamington Tennis and Squash Club’s Head Squash Coach, said: “We want to make this event truly memorable and energise female squash in our area.
“We have an awesome line-up for our evening exhibition. We are so lucky to have such talented players performing right on our doorstep. This part of the day is open to all – men and women, boys and girls.”
The event will begin at 10am with a secondary schools free taster session, which will run until noon. This will be followed by three hours of frantic squash from 1pm to 4pm. Frantic squash is a team game based on five-minute matches where each player’s goal is to win as many points as possible for their team. Exhibition matches are scheduled to take place from 6pm to 8pm.
