New Zealand's Community Squash Plan

New Zealand's Community Squash Plan 2016-2021 (PDF) provides a roadmap for how Squash New Zealand, the 11 regional District Association and local clubs will achieve the desired community-related outcomes from the strategic plan by focusing on 6 key areas:

  • Participation and Membership - more people active and committed for life.
  • Events - more people playing and engaged.
  • Coaching - more quality people supporting our players.
  • Facilities - greater utilisation of courts in the community.
  • Capability - more capable people and organisations.
