On Saturday 13th October members at Lexden Squash Club in Colchester are participating in World Squash Day with a frankly massive challenge. They plan to cycle to FIVE different clubs in the region and play a game of squash at each, all in aid of charity.
They have planned a slow-paced route to allow for breakdowns, getting lost and refreshment stops.

World Squash Day began on 11th September 2001 when squash player Derek Sword tragically lost his life in the 9/11 World Trade Centre disaster. Legendary Lexden MC Alan Thatcher, alongside Peter Nicol, Martin Heath and other professionals began World Squash Day in Derek’s honour and now it serves to unite squash enthusiasts around the world in raising the profile of the sport as well as much needed money for good causes.
