Squash Mission Statement
The aspirations of the club are:
To support the growth of squash and racketball, by offering members an inclusive and friendly club, with excellent facilities. To promote participation in the sports, and provide support to players of all ages and abilities, in order that they can enjoy competitive and recreational squash at an affordable level.
Key words in the statement are explained herewith:
We must support the growth of squash and racketball (Squash 57) for the future of the sport. This word encapsulates the need to develop young players, invest in coaching, and encourage novices and beginners to take up the sport to ensure that those who can play do play. It also takes account of our obligation to ensure that the number of members is appropriate for our facilities.
This covers all abilities, ages, ethnicities, able or disabled; giving all members the same opportunity to participate in whichever way they prefer. This would include team squash, leagues, friendly games or just social engagement.
We should welcome members and guests, and fulfil a role that promotes a club culture and the social/community benefits of membership. We should engage with prospective and new members to ensure they join the club and remain as members.
We should aim to have excellent courts, a well stocked bar and a clean and safe environment. We cannot compete with multi-sport, private clubs with high membership regarding facilities, but we can ensure that we invest wisely to protect, maintain and invest in our facilities within the constraints of our funds.
This includes court usage for squash and racketball (Squash57). We should make it easy for members to book courts, encouraging them to book and use the facilities, including the bar and bar area. Team squash, leagues and any organised club nights or other events that promote participation will be carefully balanced against the need to protect social squash.
Members and guests should see membership as an essential annual expenditure and become ambassadors, promoting the club through their passion and the sport.
Membership costs, bar prices and team tariffs should be competitive and set at a level to allow investment that enables the club to meet its obligations set out in the mission statement.
