As a not-for-profit organization, we always operate with our mission in mind. If you care about the sport of squash and want to see it grow and thrive, supporting a Squash BC program or event can be a way to feel good about where your sponsorship budget is allocated.

Squash BC builds Legacy Programs into all our championship budgets, so we can help host communities and facilities carry through the event momentum to deliver grassroots programs and engage new participants.

Mutual Benefit

We strive to design and deliver mutually beneficial relationships with our partners. Ensuring that your business and our community benefit from our partnership is paramount to its success.

As a Squash BC Partner, you get access to our province-wide community of squash players, supporters, facilities, and fans. Depending on your industry or offerings, customizing a partnership that caters to a specific subset of our community can increase engagement with your brand. We want to work together to form long-lasting relationships that benefit our community and your company for years to come.

Why Squash?

Squash is one of the fastest growing sports in the world, with over 20 million players across 185 countries and territories. With its inclusion in the LA2028 Summer Olympics, squash will finally be on display at the world’s biggest stage, increasing global awareness of the sport.

A 2003 Forbes magazine study indicated that squash was the healthiest sport in the world. In just one hour of squash, a player can expend between 600-1000 calories. It is accessible, affordable, easy to play, builds muscular strength and endurance, and is an excellent cardiovascular workout.

Why Squash BC?
