Squashworld Hilton along with “Smarter than Smoking” and “City of Fremantle” are holding an open day to introduce Squash to new juniors. For full details see:
WA Squash have decided to reschedule the Academy Launch and Squad Trials due to be held this Sunday 15th March, based on concerns of the COVID-19 Virus.
All other WA Squash sanctioned competitions will continue until further notice.
We understand that whilst not everyone will fully agree with our course of action, we do hope people understand that our decision is based in prioritising the heath and well-being of our members and families.
WA Squash is excited to announce after many months of planning and negotiating we have finally formed the WA Squash Academy (WASA). WASA is to be fully funded by a wonderful benefactor through the Australian Sports Foundation. The soft launch will occur this Sunday which will include trials for Development and Talent Squads and participants for WASA.
Participants have already been invited through their clubs as the WASA will be catering for 16 years of age and upwards. For far too long our players have had no structure after juniors and WASA will provide a pathway for U19 and above. The dream is to establish U23 events and in the future be able to represent WA in U23 and Open events. WASA will also be for coaches and referees to gain experience.
Should you be interested in WASA please advise Dean Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org by 2pm Friday 13th March.
Open Days at Squashworld Mirrabooka give children the opportunity to have a go at a new sport in a fun and safe environment.Even if your child has never even picked up a racket before, by the end of the session they will have acquired some basic skills and will be hungry for more!
4-7 year olds: 9am to 11am (includes healthy morning tea)
8-15 year olds: 9am to 12pm, then free time on court until 1pm (includes healthy morning tea and lunch)
Run by Tim Cowell – professional squash player and junior development coach, along with Working with Children checked volunteers.
