The Squash BC Post-Secondary Program is in full swing at the University of British Columbia Okanagan this season. Through a strong partnership between UBCO Heat Athletics & Recreation, Global Fitness & Racquets Centre, and Squash BC, this program has grown to have 58 new squash players engaged actively in week-to-week lessons. This season alone, the program needed to triple its estimated number of groups to service the demand from students!
This program is made possible due to the incredible sponsorship from the BC Jesters. Their support of squash – particularly at the post-secondary level – is incredibly beneficial to the goals of our Growth Initiative. As well, this season’s sessions received increased funding from viaSport’s Rally Together – Sport Participation Grant. This allowed for increased delivery and provided each participant with a racquet so they could play outside of lessons as well.
Squash BC thanks UBCO, Global Fitness & Racquets, Coach Tom van Unen, the BC Jesters, our Growth Initiative Donors, and viaSport. We look forward to sharing more Post-Secondary Program successes soon!
