Escorts Squash Rackets Club embraces community projects

28th September 17

One of the great amateur touring squash clubs, the Escorts, who since 1933 has provided a social environment in which to enjoy squash has been considering how they can support the development of the game and in particular make a contribution towards community projects. They invited James Sandwith to bring members up to speed with Spirit of Squash’s activities across London.

“It was great fun speaking at the Escorts Squash Rackets Club AGM last night raising awareness of Spirit of Squash’s projects that give London’s kids the chance to play, to learn and to lead. The room was full of fellow sportsmen with a passion for the game and who have benefitted physically, socially and professionally from squash. Some are now keen to see what they can give back to the sport,” explains James Sandwith. Individuals contributed within days and the club’s board are now discussing how a collective approach might be made to support Play & Learn projects.

James suggested that clubs participating in the Bath Cup may wish to fund a place on one of our inner city programmes so they can follow a child’s development through the leadership and squash opportunities. He suggested companies looking for a CSR project should also get in touch. Spirit of Squash offers a packaged solution of education and sport that can make a difference to young Londoners’ lives. It’s the perfect thing to sponsor for companies of any size.
