SSP supports World Squash Day - Back the Bid
18 October 2012
Surrey Sports Park is backing the bid for squash to be included in the 2020 Olympic Games as part of World Squash Day this Saturday.
The day coincides with young players from the London and South East region heading to The Park for elite training camps as part of the centre’s ongoing relationship with the sport’s national governing body, England Squash and Racketball.
World Squash Day this Saturday 21 October is designed to celebrate the popularity of squash and the great potential squash has to inspire young people to get involved in the game if it were to become an Olympic sport for the 2020 Games.
Iain Woodley, Surrey Sports Park Operations Director said, “As a regional centre of excellence SSP understands the true international attraction of squash as it reaches out beyond the traditional heartland of Olympic nations, offering the potential for others to reach for the medals.
“As a training venue for many of the national teams and coaches from junior to senior level, SSP recognises the strength of the game in the UK at the very highest level and we believe that Squash represented at the 2020 games would see Team GB reap the well deserved rewards from the superb progress the sport has been making.”
With a dedicated Squash Club and qualified coaches on site, Surrey Sports Park offers players of all abilities and ages a path into the game, with beginner courses, dedicated skills sessions, club nights, leagues and ladders available.
