You are part of the Squash Community
We can happily talk about the benefits of having a Squash BC membership.

Official ranking, eligibility to play in leagues and tournaments, liability insurance, membership with Squash Canada, and a newsletter that captures all the up-to-the-minute news about squash in BC.

We can expand on how you can save money on home and car insurance through our Belair Direct affinity program or through member discounts in coaching and officiating courses and Squash TV.
But the biggest benefit is the value the sport brings to your life.

Think about it. The friends you have made, the matches and tournaments you have played and the health, fitness, competition and social benefits that come from squash participation is the value of membership.
I have played squash for over 42 years. I don't play tournaments or league anymore. But at 82 years old and for twice-a-week I step on to the courts for cardio and upper body strength benefits through squash drills. That is the value that BC squash gives me and why I continue to be part of this great sport community as a member.

Anne Paris,
Please renew your membership and continue to be a part of the squash community.
The reality is the cost of an adult membership with Squash BC translates to 13 cents per day.

Your 13 cents per day helps us to ensure the sport benefits you receive and the great experiences you have continue and thrive through our program and service delivery and advocacy of our great game at the municipal, provincial and national levels.
