Keeping players active and engaged
We conducted a survey in June 2020 to understand how the squash community feel about stepping back on court once the UK Government restrictions are lifted and squash clubs can reopen. This report highlights key findings and makes some recommendations for clubs and venues around re-engaging players.

Keeping in touch with your membership base is important during this time. We've seen lots of great examples of ways in which clubs and players are keeping active - from trickshot challenges to live workouts.
