Improve your Club - Strategies for Excellence

Under "Improve Your Club," we publish Best Practice to enhance the profitability and utilization of facilities, create a socially attractive atmosphere, and enrich the community through innovative player acquisition programs and exciting events. The goal is to provide facilities with the tools and inspiration to diversify the offerings and turn the club into the "third place" of the local sports community.

Leadership Role: Squash Development Manager 

In the complex structure of squash facility management, coaches often play a key role. From the perspective of the SFN, they should not only act as trainers on the court but also significantly contribute to the operational success of the facilities by participating in a variety of activities aimed at bringing players onto the court. Frequently, coaches possess these ideal qualifications to assume the responsibilities of a Squash Development Manager.

Youth Engagement: Partnerships with Schools

In this section, we publish successful strategies and programs specifically aimed at exciting young people about squash. Experience has shown that attracting youth often leads to engaging their parents in the sport, thereby gaining new members for the club. We share insights into effective partnerships with educational institutions, the design of school squash programs, and events that not only enhance athletic skills but also highlight the social and health benefits of squash.

Strengthening Community: Squash Connects

The fascination of squash for many lies in its social aspect and the sense of community it fosters. We view squash as more than just a sport—it's a sportive basis for community building and social engagement. Outreach programs and community involvement have the potential not only to increase participation in squash but also to promote inclusivity, health, and social cohesion.

Program Diversity: The Right Fit for Every Player

Targeted communication is essential, yet equally important is offering specialized programs for all types of players. We champion a broad spectrum of options: from best practices that allow newcomers to jump right into the game without extensive introductions, to opportunities for ambitious players aiming to transition from recreational to competitive play, and inclusive programs for seniors and players with disabilities. Our best practices showcase successful programs designed to enable participation in squash for everyone, while simultaneously promoting an inclusive and diverse environment that ignites a passion for squash in all participants.

Tournaments and Events: The Heart of the Community 

By hosting tournaments and events, squash facilities can establish themselves as vibrant community hubs that celebrate the sport in all its forms. These gatherings not only promote squash but also strengthen community bonds and create a lively, inclusive atmosphere that attracts more people into the world of squash.
