After the fun of Banksy Week, we are enjoying some more creative input from 305 Squash.
We are sharing images every day this week showing the World Squash Day logo in some imaginative locations. All the work is by the hugely talented Joel Shields, founder of 305 Squash.
The idea is to encourage squash players across the world to take to the streets to support World Squash Day.
Covid-19 restrictions are in force in numerous countries, and the UK this week introduced new legislation forbidding gatherings of more than six people.
This makes it impossible to invite large groups of newcomers into poorly ventilated courts.
Our World Squash Day Toolkit was designed with these restrictions in mind. Our whole focus this year is to create the biggest social media campaign in the history of the sport.
That means inviting small, Covid-compliant groups of players from every club on the planet to hit a few balls in front of some iconic locations and share the footage on social media.
So, the message is simple. Have some fun, don’t do anything dangerous, don’t get arrested but DO make sure you are helping to spread the word about our fantastic sport.
Our friends at @MyyrSquash in Finland were quick to respond to the 305 Squash images with a brilliant video from the 1952 Olympics, brought up to date with some timely squash references … so we hope to see more offerings from around the world as we count down the clock to World Squash Day on October 10th.
In the meantime, clubs are urged to purchase the special World Squash Day T-shirts designed by 305 Squash.
In red, black or white, the shirts will help to raise money for professional players who are experiencing financial hardship.
Every penny of profit will go to the We Are One campaign, launched by the PSA Foundation.

Players who have not earned a penny since March will be over the moon to see some money coming in at last.
