Scottish Squash have announced today that children and students will be able to attend the Springfield Scottish Squash Open free of charge during rounds one and two, which take place on Wednesday and Thursday (3rd & 4th April) at Oriam; Scotland’s Sports Performance Centre.
The decision comes as the sport moves into its new strategic plan and shares the aims of Springfield Properties, the headline event sponsor, to inspire the next generation into the sport of squash.
Scottish Squash Chief Executive, Maggie Still, said:
“Scottish Squash is thrilled to have formed a partnership with Springfield Properties. The Springfield Scottish Squash Open will help to deliver our vision to inspire the next generation of players into our fun, exciting and fitness promoting sport.
Sandy Adam, Chairman of Springfield Properties, added:
“The Springfield Scottish Squash Open will act as a catalyst to revive the game across Scotland. It is an inspiring sport for young people; there is more to the sport than being physically fit and athletic, you must be as sharp mentally as you are physically to thrive.”
Any child or student wishing to attend on Wednesday or Thursday (3rd & 4th April) is encouraged to turn up at any point when play gets underway at 12noon.
