Get involved in Women's Squash Week 2018

England Squash is proud and excited to support Women’s Squash Week from 22-30 September. This week-long international celebration of women's squash is a great opportunity to raise the profile of squash, engage more females and shine a spotlight on the successes and challenges the sport faces.

Our campaign aims to address the gender gap in squash by encouraging more women and girls on court. According to the Active Lives Survey, only 13% of weekly players are female and just 22% of our coach members are women.

Throughout the week, we’ll be highlighting five key themes that embody Women’s Squash Week which are: Empowering, Fun, Sociable, Inclusive and Lifelong. We believe these themes reflect the squash community at all levels and can inspire more women and girls to start their squash journey or take their squash to another level.

We will be working alongside clubs to deliver a week that provides an annual platform to empower players, coaches, referees and volunteers to engage more females.

Whether you play, volunteer, coach, referee or work in squash, you can play your part and help increase women and girl’s participation by organising your own event or sharing your inspirational stories. Make some noise using hashtag #WSWeek18!

Our Women's Squash Week toolkit has all the ideas and resources you need to join the campaign - from event ideas to downloadable logos, images and videos.
