England Squash Corona Virus Statement

We are pleased to share with you the following from our NGB:

Coronavirus Statement:

Following the formal announcement by the UK Government last week, we have cancelled all sanctioned competition activity up to the end of March.

For further information & updates please visit www.englandsquash.com to find our latest coronavirus statement. Our website is continually updated as we hear more information about how UK Government advice continues to affect the squash community.

2020-21 Season:

Following last week’s announcement by the UK Government we now know restrictions on indoor sport are only likely to begin to be lifted from the 12th April. As with previous lockdowns we will receive details of the easing of restrictions at the same time as the general public, and will require some time to adapt our plans and guidelines accordingly. Our communications will focus upon what we know, when we hear officially, and we will continue to avoid speculation, which creates confusion.

PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS

As the President of Army Squash, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Army Squash website.   As an organisation we have gone from strength to strength over the last few years, and I hope we will enable to continue this progress and turn ‘very good’ into ‘even better’. All of us, from me as President, through the Chairman and Committee, down to the players, coaches, referees, and supporters have a vital part to play in achieving that goal. We are all busy; our day jobs and our families quite rightly must take priority but, within capacity, I would ask each and every one of you to continue to commit your time and energy to support AS aims, and each other. Very well done and thank you.

Lieutenant General Tyrone R Urch CBE President of Army Squash

FREE SQUASHLEVELS MEMBERSHIP & MONTHLY CHALLENGE

Army Squash is delighted to announce a new partnership with SquashLevels and the introduction of our new Monthly Challenge.  You will need to be registered on SquashLevels to take advantage of this new initiative.

We want to encourage players of all standards to keep training and improving, so are now running a ‘test of the month’ challenge facilitated by SquashLevels.  All the tests will be squash specific, but suitable to do anywhere – you don’t need a squash court!

We will be offering a monthly prize for the player who achieves the highest score, and you can take the test as many times as you want, so there is every incentive to get practising.  You will also be able to see how your scores compare to the rest of the Army players, your Corps players and the players at your Army base location with live ‘leaderboards’.  Note that video evidence will be required should you wish to claim the top spot and the prize.  Over the next couple of months the challenges will include technical squash challenges as well as traditional strength and conditioning tests.

To join SquashLevels with free platimum membership and take the monthly challenge, click here
