England Squash launches national programmes to diversify the sport

Sport England research highlights that 2 in 5 people from ethnically diverse communities feel they have fewer opportunities to participate in sport and physical activity than people from a white background. Similarly, disabled adults are almost twice as likely to be inactive compared to non-disabled adults.

Squash from the Mosque and Mixed Ability Squash will help overcome these challenges by taking the game into the heart of local communities and connecting clubs with community groups and faith centres to co-create and deliver relevant and regular activity.

In a bid to drive meaningful change across the sport, England Squash has collaborated with Calder Community Squash and International Mixed Ability Sport (IMAS) to design the programmes and provide educational resources, best practice and promotional assets to support clubs nationwide to deliver them.
