Fantastic News!!!

After over 2 years of negotiations, we are delighted to confirm that the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead (‘RBWM’) have approved stage 1 of our Schools Squash Programme and we will be building 2 new mini squash courts at Dedworth Middle School in 2024. We will then be launching a squash programme for the school, as well as delivering after-school coaching courses at local clubs. Whilst the end product will differ to the image below, this gives an overview of the product we have designed with Melior Sports.

On Friday 28th March 2024, we finally received £48,950 from RBWM to fund the courts and equipment and make a contribution towards our year-long coaching programme. We are really excited by this development and the plan is to launch at least 2 further sites in the borough, should the programme be deemed a success. We will then look for opportunites to roll out a similar programme across the county and work with other boroughs to replicate the plan.

We believe this strategy will really help to get children within Berkshire engaged with squash and help support court usage at local clubs. Initially, Braywick, Datchet & Windsor (TVAC), and Bisham Abbey will hopefully be the key beneficiaries from our community-based programmes, however other clubs should also benefit, as the programme rolls out.

Our plan is to also help the enthusisatic and talented juniors join our Academy and hopefully become future County Stars.
