A Matter of Community
The goal of the Community Initiative is to provide access and lifelong engagement in squash to people spanning the entire socio-economic spectrum, fostering lasting relationships across generations, genders, races and religions and building a lasting and diverse community rooted in shared values.
Building off a strong foundation of traditional club and school-based models, squash communities of the future will be built around multi-purpose facilities which integrate a full range of programming. These community squash centers, featuring both indoor and outdoor courts, will dramatically increase access to the sport and bring a growing and diverse community together.
This evolution of the sport requires investments in infrastructure to support the efforts of squash leaders nationwide, and to make gains in access sustainable. The US Squash Community Initiative, anchored by the Community Affiliate Network, will stimulate and support the establishment of centers nationwide.
