Women In Coaching Fund

PSA Foundation’s Women in Coaching Fund, launched in 2023 as a legacy of the Women’s Squash Leadership program, with the aim of encouraging more women to participate in the game at a coaching and mentoring level. 

The first round of this pioneering fun commenced in US in partnership with US Squash in 2023, with the second phase taking place in Malaysia. 

29 women have now completed coaching qualifications through this fund. 

The fund is now extending to Egypt, with a further 20 places being provided on a WSF Level One Course, taking place from the 13-16th April 2024 alongside the Black Ball Open.

Women’s Squash Week is an international campaign that aims to celebrate and raise the profile of female squash.   

PSA Foundation are proud to champion this key awareness week, and a core part of our work is empowering women and girls to participate in squash.   

The theme in 2023 was #YouBelong: highlighting how women and girls belong in all aspects of the game.  

This can be from playing recreationally to on becoming a professional tour, as well as in other areas of the game such as coaching and refereeing.
