OTTAWA, ON (June 5, 2020) — Squash Canada is pleased to announce a new partnership with the UK based, worldwide known, Squash Player Magazine.

The partnership will provide squash players across Canada, who are members of their respective Provincial/Territorial squash association with complimentary access to the latest electronic issue of Squash Player Magazine.

“We are pleased to bring one of the world’s leading squash magazines to the Canadian squash membership”, said Dan Wolfenden, Squash Canada Executive Director.  “We think Canadian squashers will enjoy the cover-to-cover read of each issue and appreciate yet another benefit of being a member of their provincial or territorial squash association.”

The digital circulation of the magazine will allow members to read about exciting developments and results, improve their game by learning from some of the top players in the world, and stay updated on current issues facing the squash community.

“At Squash Player we are thrilled to be working with Squash Canada to provide the world’s squash magazine to Canadian readers,” said long-time Squash Player editor Ian Mckenzie, from London. “These are difficult times for the sport and if you cannot get on court right now you can still read about the game and get ready for when you can do battle again,”.

“Squash Player magazine endeavours to connect to players about their games as well as the wider game. We are lucky in our sport to have access to the best players in the world, meet and write about them, learn from them and include them in a publication that is still relevant to the sports enthusiasts. I hope you enjoy this publication.”

Moving forward, Canadian members will be able to access the magazine on their provincial/territorial squash association web page or at http://squash.ca.

Today it is still the sports leading magazine, issued four times a year, with top writers and experts commenting on squash. It has an extensive Workshop section with the latest advice on how players at all levels can improve their games. It is available in both print and digital formats.
