Cairo to host free World Squash Coaching course for women

Next month, Cairoʼs Black Ball Sporting Club will host a subsidised women-only World Squash Coaching course.

The course, which will be led by World Squash Tutor Ashraf Hanafi and World Squash Level 2 Coach and Level 1 Tutor Trainee Omneya Abdel Kawy, and funded by the PSA Foundation, will see 20 women complete the World Squash Coaching Level One, the first of three World Squash Coaching qualifications.

Sarah Fitz-Gerald, chair of the WSF Coaching Commission, said:

“Itʼs fantastic to see another free coaching course for women being delivered after last yearʼs successful free course in Malaysia.

“Courses such as these are a key part of our strategy to achieve gender equality in squash by increasing the number of opportunities, and weʼre looking forward to offering even more in the future.

“My thanks to our hosts Black Ball Sporting Club and the Egyptian Squash Federation, our coaching tutors, and the PSA Foundation for their close collaboration in delivering this course.

“Good luck to all the women who will be beginning their coaching journey!”
