Lincoln squash club nets funding boost!

Added 19 Nov 2019 by GFORCE

A group of squash players from Lincoln has netted a much-needed new kit from leading sportswear provider, GFORCE Sportswear.

Win Squash Coaching, who train at Dean Sport and Leisure, has received some fully bespoke kit worth £750 from the 2019 GFORCE Grassroots Campaign, which aims to provide support to help sports teams and clubs achieve their aspirations.

WIN was formed in 2008 to introduce people of all abilities across Lincolnshire to the sport of squash. The team initially started with three experienced coaches having played at county and international levels as well as within the military, and now the team has now grown to five.

Coaching is offered every Wednesday evening and Saturday morning, attracting on average one new junior a month. The club now has three weekend teams playing within the Lincolnshire leagues and two teams playing within the midweek league. WIN also an emphasis on developing the senior juniors into coaches so they can support the junior element which caters for children from just four years old.

The club applied to the Grassroots Campaign to provide 26 training bottoms for the five teams and the aspiring juniors within the coaching group.

Nigel Jubbs, from Win Squash Coaching, said: “As one of the founders of the group it has been wonderful to see it grow over the years and I’ve really enjoyed playing a part in helping people to take up the sport. Each group or individual brings their own challenges and we work hard with them to build their confidence, skill, and most importantly, their enjoyment of the game.

“The group is very active with a regular school session introducing 16 pupils into the sport every six weeks. We also have juniors ranked within the top 20 in the country with several representing the East Midlands in the national regional championships which is something we are very proud of.

“We were really pleased to be successful in the Grassroots Campaign as it has helped us provide some much-needed kit which will help us look the part too! The design process was really straightforward, and the end product is above what we expected - both the juniors and senior members of the group are really impressed. Thanks to GFORCE Sportswear for their support.”

After three successful years of the GFORCE Grassroots Campaign, a total of £15,000 has been donated to clubs and teams across the Midlands so far. For 2019, the company set aside an additional pot of £5,000 to help provide kit to clubs in this region and reinforcing the brands commitment to grassroots sport.

Simon Ward, sales director at GFORCE Sportswear, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be able to support Win Squash Coaching who are doing a fantastic job to help young people into the sport and ensure they have then have the skills to help coach younger members of the group to grow and develop. We wish them all the success for the future.

“Our company has a strong history of supporting the local community and we are looking forward to giving out more grants to help sports clubs over the coming months.”
