Everards continue to support Leicester Squash Club

 

Everards are pleased to announce their continued sponsorship of the Leicester Squash Club for the 2014/2015 season.

 

Following last season’s success, the club takes team squash in Leicester to the highest level in the country – the Premier Squash League (PSL). They recently completed a £400,000 investment in two new Everards branded courts and were granted admission to the PSL by the sports governing body and organiser of the PSL, England Squash & Racketball.

 

After a monumentally busy summer a full squad has been signed up to participate in the PSL, including top world ranked players and the very best of Leicester’s local talent.  Star players include world number 10 Daryl Selby, a recent Commonwealth Games medallist and Tania Bailey who reached 4 in the women’s world rankings. Closer to home, George and Luke Parker together with Lily and Mari Taylor are also signed up.   The club is busy preparing for the first fixture, at home to Pontefract Squash Club on October 21st.

 

Nick Clark, Chairman of Leicester Squash Club said, “It’s fantastically exciting to think that the world’s best squash players will be coming to Leicester and we are very grateful for the help and support that Everards have provided to the club.  Leicester really is turning into a great city of sport and we’re pleased to be able to contribute to that”.

 

Erika Hardy, Head of Marketing at Everards said “We’re delighted to be continuing our partnership with Leicester Squash Club. We’re excited for the upcoming season and look forward to seeing some of the most talented Squash players in the world”.
