Army Squash Partners
AS is very fortunate to work with several partners who are extremely generous with their time, energy and expertise in helping us achieve our aims.
England Squash are the national governing body for squash in England and lead on the development and delivery of the sport on both a national and local level. England Squash have been a major partner since December 2017, following the signing of an MOU at the World Squash Championships in Manchester.
Amongst other projects, England Squash support the Army Squash Academy by funding coach days, hosting Army training events and supporting our coach and referee development initiatives. In return, Army Squash delivers an annual player development package for England Squash; the first event, Exercise IRON RACKET, took place in June 2018 and was attended by thirteen members of the elite England Squash Academy and their coaches.
United Kingdom Armed Forces (UKAF) Squash oversee squash across the Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force. Their primary responsibility is to deliver the annual UKAF Individual Championships and UKAF Inter-Services. Each Service take the lead for UKAF Squash on a rotational basis; in 2017 the lead is once again with the Army.
