Squash for the 2016 Olympics

The Squash Open Day at Nunholm takes place this Saturday, the 23rd May, from 12 noon to 5pm.

This takes place on World Squash Day and marks the world-wide campaign to get squash included in the 2016 Olympics.

It is free squash and racketball for all and exhibition matches involving the club’s Scottish Masters Internationalists start at 2pm.

A 3 man team competition will run throughout the afternoon. Registration is at the club at 12 noon. Entry is free.

The aim for the day is to give those who have not tried squash an opportunity to have a go. Specifically it is open to non Sports Club members! Eye protection for junior players and rackets will be available along with some refreshments.

May the 23rd is World Squash Day and for this year is rebranded as Squash 2016 Day to support the Olympic bid. More information is available on the official website squash2016.info and there is an opportunity for squash players to get involved on www.worldsquashday.com.

The Olympic initiative is backed by Scot Peter Nicol, former World no 1, “If I’d been given the opportunity, I would have been there. My four Commonwealth Games gold medals were my best achievements as a squash player. So I can only imagine what it would be like to be an Olympian, it would be the highest honour in the squash world.”
