On the 1st of September the coaches of the Northants Junior Squash section are organising an ambitious fundraiser, by playing a match in every club in Northants.
We need your help to raise funds.
For those of you who want a short communcation - we need cash donate here. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/northantsjuniorsquash?utm_term=PdYpp3g2K
The longer version is as follows:-
Come 1st September 2018 we are planning to play a match on EVERY squash club in Northamptonshire.
The core group are Squash Coaches who work with the juniors in Northants but everyone is welcome to join.
Just to add a greater challenge we’re cycling between each venue. The plan is to start in Kettering at 9am and finish in Brackley late into the evening.
So that’s 70 miles of cycling and 14 games of squash, all in one day.
Why are we doing this?
A very good question which I keep asking myself!!
We are doing this to promote the squash clubs in Northamptonshire and to raise some money for the Junior section of Northants Squash Association.
Just to give you a picture
Junior squash at the county level was non-existent until very recently. Last year we organised;
8 Grand Prix events
8 County Training session
The closed county Junior championships
95 children have taken part in these events
That’s good but….
Whilst we are very proud of what we have achieved we want more and have a 10-year plan to be competitive at the Junior level at the intercounty level.
This coming year we are stepping up the game with Junior Team squash, getting 9 Junior teams in internal leagues
We are also aiming to expand the base of Juniors so that we can grow the Junior section and find the children who can coach towards the inter county standard.
How can you help?
