Meadow Park Sports Centre and the Whistler Squash Club team up to offer  FREE Women’s Squash Week event on September 19th

Squash B.C. is hosting the 3rd annual Women’s Squash Week across the province with events geared toward providing women an opportunity to try the game of squash. Carol and Sage Eberhard will be Whistler’s 2019 ambassadors and hosts of the Women’s Squash Week event here in Whistler.  Meadow Park Sports Centre and the Whistler Squash Club will join 25 other B.C. clubs and facilities hosting a Women’s Squash Week event. These events are about encouraging women and girls of all ages and skill levels to participate in squash in a fun, non-competitive, social environment.

“The idea is to inspire women to try a new sport or get back on court after an extended absence,” says Eberhard.

Whistler and Pemberton women are invited to step out onto the court for free on Thursday, September 19th from 6:00-8:00 pm at Meadow Park Sports Centre.

Squash racquets and goggles will be available to borrow, so all that is needed is athletic wear and non-marking shoes.
