Squash Serves Up New Player Initiative

Empty retail spaces across the UK are being converted into temporary squash courts. The report, featured on the US SQUASH website, reflects the worldwide effort, called BACK THE BID, which has the goal of making squash an Olympic sport.

The “pop-up” squash court is part of a campaign being launched this week in the UK, called the Big Hit. It will offer shoppers a chance to try their hand at squash and racket ball with a qualified coach giving free lessons.
