Spon­sor­ship gives young­sters a taste of squash

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITIES -

YOUNG­STERS are get­ting a taste of squash thanks to a do­na­tion that has al­lowed a ju­nior pro­gramme to be rolled out.

Bolling­ton Squash Club, based at reg­is­tered char­ity Bolling­ton Health and Leisure, on Heath Road, has been a firm favourite with play­ers of all ages and abil­i­ties for some time.

Now it has re­ceived a spon­sor­ship grant from Mac­cles­field busi­ness Di­rect Food In­gre­di­ents to ex­tend its work with young­sters.

The ju­nior squash pro­gramme has now gone to visit key stage two pupils at Dean Val­ley Com­mu­nity Pri­mary School, Bolling­ton St John’s Pri­mary School and Bolling­ton Cross Pri­mary School.

Coaches have spo­ken to young­sters about the game and the im­por­tance of stay­ing ac­tive.

Chris Og­den, head coach at Bolling­ton Health and Leisure, said: “Thanks to the gen­eros­ity of Di­rect Food In­gre­di­ents, we have been able to ex­tend our reach and raise aware­ness of the sport amongst chil­dren in the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“In­tro­duc­ing chil­dren to squash through our ju­nior pro­gramme pro­vides them with a new and ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity, which could be­come a life-long pas­sion.

“We hope to see some new faces on the court soon.”

Cath Hough, from Di­rect Food In­gre­di­ents, on Wa­ters Green, said: “Get­ting in­volved with the lo­cal com­mu­nity has al­ways been im­por­tant to us here at Di­rect Food In­gre­di­ents.

“The op­por­tu­nity to spon­sor a club that is fo­cused on grow­ing and help­ing oth­ers has been fan­tas­tic.”

Any groups wish­ing to take part in the ju­nior squash pro­gramme can visit the Bolling­ton Health and Leisure web­site.
