Over on the West Coast, Vancouver Racquets Club are getting in the mood for World Squash Day with some development projects followed by singles and doubles competitions.
Squash Canada Executive Director Dan Wolfenden said: “Squash Canada is pleased to be part of the World Squash Day initiative and to help further the sport of squash in Canada and globally.
“Squash needs to shine a bright light on itself as one of the healthiest sports that can provide a pathway for lifelong fun, fitness and achievement.
“We applaud the many clubs in Canada for shining that light by hosting events in honour of World Squash Day 2019.”
