Women’s Squash Week (WSW) is a province-wide special event for girls and women to try the #1 healthiest sport in the world, and to encourage those who have taken a break to get back on court!
This year Squash BC is presenting a 10 week challenge to help females get mentally and physically prepared to return to court and playing squash! We hope you find the below Videos and Resources helpful to get you back on the court!
“Building a Safe and Welcoming Environment to Attract and Retain Females in Squash” Panel Discussion

“How to Avoid Injury” Squash Physio Tips with Jamie Sonego
A proper warm up before getting on court is so important! A dynamic warm-up can help to improve your athletic performance and also prevent injury. The purpose of a dynamic warm up is to increase blood flow to the areas which will be working and to wake up the nervous system. It should mimic movements that you will use consistently throughout the course of your upcoming activity. In the videos, Jamie Sonego, a squash player and physiotherapist in Vancouver, demonstrates some examples of different dynamic movements to help warm up the hips, the thoracic spine (upper back), and shoulders prior to getting on court! They will help get you warmed up so you can get into those deep lunges! If you have any questions for Jamie feel free to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
