Squash Para Todos have developed a new and innovative way of introducing squash to the communities of El Salvador. The PSA Foundation partners are transforming inner city disused spaces into squash courts!
The Squash Para Todos project seeks to grant the opportunity for the communities of San Salvador to experience squash for free. They’re encouraging kids to go play squash the same way you might go for a ‘kickabout’ in football, or use the local public tennis or basketball courts.
Squash Para Todos will be engaging with these facilities, leading sessions on the courts to introduce new juniors to the sport. They intend to also expand on the number of courts over the next few years, with a focus on engaging with more junior schools and the next generation of players.
The video below is of one of the courts that has been built behind the cafeteria of a local junior school. It’s only half a court, but for those age groups its more than enough for an enjoyable introduction to the sport.
Squash Para Todos is a relatively new programme now working with the PSA Foundation.
The Foundation sends large donations of squash equipment, provides online coaching resources, exposure to the professional tour and support around promotion and networking with other key squash organisations.
