England Squash and Karakal team up for World Squash Day
England Squash have formed a collaborative new partnership with Karakal, one of the UK’s leading racket sports specialists, to support squash clubs in engaging new players on World Squash Day on October 12.
In what is set to be the most successful World Squash Day to date in England, Karakal will provide kit bags featuring 18 rackets to the first 100 England Squash affiliated clubs who sign up to become a delivery partner and stage a World Squash Day event.
At the time of writing, more than 70 clubs had already signed up to join the fun and promote the sport on World Squash Day.
Mark Williams, Director of Sport at England Squash said: “World Squash Day serves as a springboard to inspire the nation to pick up a racket and we are thrilled to have Karakal’s support to grow the game in England.”
“This year, we’ve set the ambitious target of engaging 5,000 players through World Squash Day events in England and we are encouraging clubs to sign up and help showcase our fantastic sport to their local communities. Delivery partners will receive a host of incentives including the Karakal kit bag and a £250 grant to grow their programmes.”
Steve Gallienne, Global Sales and Marketing Manager at Karakal said: “We are delighted to partner with England Squash for World Squash Day and encourage clubs to stage events. For Karakal to play a part in inspiring new players to get on court is extremely rewarding and aligned to our strategy to increase participation.”
