The options and opportunity for squash in schools is growing bigger and bigger! There are programmes and events for all ages and levels. If you are interested in having squash in your school or are interested in playing squash contact Di McCoy, our Junior Squash Development Officer (Christchurch).

The Secondary Schools Interschool Programme is run by Canterbury Secondary School Sport http://www.canterbury.schoolsport.org.nz/school-sport-canterbury/.
The interschool competition is a team event and takes place on Wednesday afternoon. It started on the 16th May and will go through to 22nd August (break during school holidays). This year 23 teams from 7 secondary schools have entered the interschool competition. For the first three weeks of the Girl’s mixed grade competition, we have run a Coaching Clinic at Squash HQ to develop their skills, prior to the interschools competition commencing.
The 2018 Championships took place at Squash City at the end of June. Click here to see how the Canterbury Schools got on.
