I - Squash Squared Charity Overview
Squash Squared is the UK's first sports and education program for disadvantaged children across South London and Surrey. The initiative works with children from deprived areas, focusing on improving classroom achievement and
learning a new sporting skill (squash). Nearly 100 children from 4 schools receive weekly sports and educational support sessions, along with a meal and transport to and from their school.
Every week, students are escorted from their school to a nearby squash club, where they receive an hour and a half of squash coaching, combined with academic tutoring, helping them with the topics they struggle with the most,
and a healthy meal.
The tutoring helps grow confidence in the classroom, which drives better academic achievement. During their squash session, the children are given the opportunity to have fun on the court through coaching and games, and also to
engage in competitive matches against one another. This improves fitness, coordination, agility and provides a new skill, giving each child greater confidence.
At the completion of the Squash Squared sessions, the children return home well fed and well exercised, and also have their homework completed and are fully prepared for the next school day.
