Programmes We support

CALDER COMMUNITY SQUASH

A Community Interest Company based in the UK, Calder Community Squash (CSS) is committed to breaking down the barriers people face when trying to access sport whilst also growing the game of squash.

Working with populations from local mosques, refugees, young people on free school meals and people with disabilities, CCS believes squash is a sport that for a long time has been difficult to gain access to, and they’re committed to changing that. CSS predominantly works in the community with portable squash gear, offering a clear pathway to the more traditional courts.

Fundación SQUASH SIN LIMITES

Squash Sin Limites (which translates as Squash Unlimited) is based in Cordoba, Argentina, and is a brand new charity launched late 2020.

They use squash, education and personal development to improve quality of life for local underserved children.

Squash Sin Limites presents a slightly different and new angle. Instead of focusing on one particular hub of operation, they seek to establish a strong network of coaches that can operate at various centres for sport. Sports facilities are ‘adapted’ where necessary for innovative court creations to ensure its inclusion with other well known sports.

Through English, we support their in-school academics and prepare them for future opportunities including scholarships to private schools. We want to see every girl succeed and we work hard to create a space of mutual empowerment in which they can thrive and grow, then going out into the world as talented, strong, well equipped women, able to command lasting change in their own communities.
