Lexden hit the road to support World Squash Day

REPORT BY ALAN THATCHER (World Squash Day Co-ordinator)
Squash clubs across the country are opening their doors this Saturday to promote the sport on World Squash Day.

As well as staging open days to showcase the fun and health benefits that squash offers, many clubs are engaging with their local communities.

Members of the Lexden Squash Club in Colchester will take to their bikes to play squash at four neighbouring clubs in the English county of Suffolk, aiming to cover 90 miles in around 12 hours.

The intrepid riders will set off at 6am and visit Ipswich, Stowmarket, Moreton Hall and the Officers Club in Colchester before completing the journey back at Lexden.

They will be raising money for a charity called Florence’s Heroes, which has been set up to support specialist care for premature babies and sick children.
