England Squash support for Exeter

Apr 27, 2020 | Jenni Ashford

While squash and racketball across the world has been stalled by the Covid 19 situation, Exeter Golf and Country Club is planning ahead by working with England Squash to get the game back in action as soon as clubs are able to reopen.

Through a generous series of financial grants, England Squash is supporting clubs across the country to help them kickstart their squash programmes once again when lockdown is lifted. Exeter Golf and Country Club squash has been granted this financial assistance which will fund a ‘get back to squash’ event at the club following this period of government lockdown.

Mike Harris, Head of Squash and Racketball at Exeter Golf and Country Club submitted the application to England Squash on behalf of the club and is delighted to have been successful.

Mike said, “An exciting afternoon and evening of squash is just what we need to get the ball rolling again, so to speak!  I have planned an action-packed squash event – obviously date to be confirmed – for when the situation eases, to welcome back juniors and adults.  We will also host a pro-exhibition match on the same day, which offer some pretty sensational squash as kickback from the frustration of not playing for some time!”

The squash event will feature a junior and adult group coaching clinic, followed by the four player pro exhibition shootout event. All four of the squash professionals will take part in the the coaching in the adult and junior clinics. The event will offer a rare chance to get on court with so many quality players.

The event will take place on a Saturday or Sunday with plenty of spaces on both coaching sessions and also in the crowd for the exhibition event. There will also be a raffle draw for everyone attending the exhibition evening with some top prizes from Karakal UK, as well as free 1-2-1 lessons up for grabs.

More information will be made available once a date can be announced, but keep an eye out for the opportunity to get involved soon.

Mike continued, “Thank you to England Squash for their support of clubs across the country in this very difficult time. We hope to see as many players as possible back on court when the restrictions are lifted and in the meantime, practice drills at home – and most importantly keep active!”
