The event wasn’t just an on-court experience! In between thrilling matches, participants were also treated to some fantastic social events. The event kicked off on the Thursday with Community Engagement Programming.  Giselle Delgado led women’s programming with 8 participants as well as junior programming. On the Friday, Nanaimo’s Club Pro Josh Struthers, along with several local assistants, led junior programming for 2 elementary schools with 70 kids trying the sport. 

Players enjoyed a Player Party on Saturday evening at The Old City Station Pub; everyone was able to relax, socialize and enjoy a great selection of food and drinks. We thank The Old City Station Pub staff for their work throughout the social. Participants also enjoyed Nanaimo Squash Club’s Courtside Bar during the event. 

Throughout the weekend, Squash BC ran a 50/50 Draw to raise funds for our Squash Barriers Campaign in support of our Squash in Schools program. This year, Squash BC piloted Squash in Schools and we’re on track to introduce the sport to thousands of students before the end of the school year. The Squash Barriers Campaign aims to keep delivering this program at no charge to schools again in September 2024. The draw raised hundreds of dollars for the campaign and a big congratulations again to Andrew Lynn, who won the prize! Thanks to all that supported!
