SQUASH & RACKETBALL
England Squash (SRA) is the National Governing Body for Squash and Racketball.
The Kent Squash and Racketball Association
(Kent SRA) represents the National Governing Body and acts on its
behalf within the County of Kent which includes the London Boroughs of
Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lewisham and the Unitary Authority of Medway.
Its objects are to promote and encourage the games of Squash and
Racketball and to further their growth and development at all levels in
Kent, reflecting Equal Opportunities for all.
The Association has no facilities of its own and is reliant totally on
the goodwill of clubs to host County Championships, Inter-County ties
and coaching and training of its junior squads.
There are many clubs and centres in Kent but the majority of
representative players graduate to clubs within the Kent London
The Kent SRA appreciates the importance of owning its own courts and is
keen to establish such a facility attached to an existing club. The
Association would negotiate with the club to use the club’s
existing facilities in return for the club using the County courts,
other than for some weekend use for County events and coaching. Ideally
any County courts, added to existing club facilities, would have glass
backs to the courts.
Any such facility would be termed the Kent County Centre of Excellence and would be strategically located if possible.
EXISTING and POTENTIAL SATELLITE FACILITIES
The Mote Club, in Maidstone, has upgraded its facilities, following a lottery grant, and has become a satellite centre and the Kent SRA would like a club in the East of the County and one in the Tunbridge Wells area to become satellite centres.
