Women’s Squash Week 2017

Women’s Squash Week 2017

posted in: BLOG, Women's Squash Week | 0

Women’s Squash Week is coming back to Vancouver and British Columbia!

DATES: September 23 – October 1

Women’s Squash Week is an initiative spearheaded by “NY: Squash” and originally supported in Vancouver by Squash Republic and the Vancouver Squash League with a goal of introducing women to the sport of squash and increasing their involvement in the sport. This FREE sporting event has been running in Vancouver since 2013 which was the first year that Canadian cities and clubs were first encouraged to participate. The event now takes place in Ireland, Hong Kong, Bermuda and England.

This year Squash BC has taken over the organization of the event and we encourage anyone who is interested in participating to visit their website.

Where can I learn how to play squash during Women’s Squash Week?
