Squash Canada is pleased to announce Oxford Properties as a 2021-2022 Platinum Corporate Partner whose support will help lead our sport out of the pandemic and into a new era of unprecedented growth, exposure and development of squash in Canada. The partnership will feature bringing a brand-new Squash Canada all-glass exhibition court to the public via Oxford’s world class properties including Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto, ON and Bow Valley Square in Calgary, AB.
