Women's Squash Week toolkit

Women’s Squash Week is an international celebration of squash and an opportunity to engage women in our sport across the world.


Our 2019 campaign aims to address the gender gap in squash by encouraging more women and girls to get on court where only 13% of weekly squash players in England are female.

Check out our toolkit below for event ideas and inspiration, and download videos and photos to support your activities.


Make some noise at your club

Check out our ideas on staging a successful event or providing an offer to members:

Record your activities using the England Squash app which will help measure the impact of the campaign and the difference it makes to the current weekly female participation figure of 13%. Log into the app using your England Squash coach / leader membership details, add your Women's Squash Week sessions and finally add the participants to those sessions. Access the app.
