Bayside Squash Club is joining 25 other BC clubs and facilities in hosting a Women’s Squash Week event for newcomers and players of-all-levels from Sept. 14-22.

The club, located at 240 Dogwood St. in Parksville, is going to provide women in the Parksville Qualicum Beach area an opportunity to try squash for free on Sept. 14 from 1-4 p.m.

Helping to drive squash in the community is Rhonda Coleman, who is this year’s ambassador for Bayside Racquets Club. She aims to help girls and women to try out this very healthy sport.

“Squash is a great work out and offers a great social circle” said Coleman.

Coleman is the perfect fit to promote the sport for those who have never picked up a squash racket as she started in mid-life and never picked up a racquet before.

“The motivation was to stay active and fit but the club’s friendly and welcoming spirit was instrumental in our staying in the game,” said Coleman, who starting playing along with her husband” .

The free drop this weekend will feature demo match, game play opportunity, learn the basics and also free refreshments.
