Latest Bounce Back initiatives
Team Laura vs Team Nick
On World Squash Day (10th October), we launched Team Laura vs Team Nick with players from around the country picking a side, getting on court and recording their scores via SquashLevels in the greatest team squash battle. The initiative aimed to provide clubs with a competitive opportunity to encourage their players back on court safely, Leamington Squash Club recorded 60 matches and said,
'Great idea that certainly helped Leamington with getting people back on court. A bit of competition always helps'.
Unfortunately the contest was brought to a premature end by the national lockdown imposed on 5th November. However, despite the restrictions, 459 matches were played during the competition’s final week, bringing the total to an impressive 1,165 matches.
Team Laura claimed victory over Team Nick, triumphing 667-498.
Look out for similar initiatives in future.
