Drive to 2020

Campbell Riverites took part in World Squash Day last Saturday as part of an effort to get the sport into the Summer Olympics

Last Saturday squash clubs around the world hosted matches all day long to prove to the International Olympic Committee that squash should be an Olympic sport.

In Campbell River, 20 people participated in two-on-two match ups at the Sportsplex to generate interest and take part in the international effort.

World Squash Day was part of Squash 2020, a campaign to have squash included in the 2020 Summer Olympics which are still being bid on by Istanbul, Turkey; Tokyo, Japan; and Madrid, Spain.
