Premier League Squash Comes back to Wales
Premier league squash is coming back to Wales and coming back to Cardiff, the latest team to enter the Premier Squash League is the Welsh Wizards and will play their home matches at the Sport Wales National Centre in Cardiff.
Red Squirrel Marketing are pleased to announce that we are sponsoring the team but we have also been asked to manage the teams marketing going in to the new season as well as branding the team and creating an online presence.
An exciting new season of squash has been boosted by the news that Squash Wales will be one of the new teams added to the Premier Squash League (PSL) for 2018/19 in an updated format.
Split into north and south divisions, the 12-team competition will see teams from across the UK complete 10 league rounds consisting of home and away fixtures; before the top two teams from each division progress to end-of-season play-offs.
Kicking off on September 25, Squash Wales will make their PSL debut against Coolhurst, before taking on the likes of Bexley, Chichester, St George’s Hill and Tradition @ RAC.
League matches will comprise five-player teams (four men, one woman). A provisional squad of 10 male and female players has been announced by Squash Wales – including Wales number ones Tesni Evans and Peter Creed – with the competition also planned as a development platform to introduce Welsh transition and youth players into the arena of competitive, international-standard squash across the season.
Squash Wales High Performance Coach David Evanssaid “It’s superb to have top level squash back in Wales after so long being out of the league. It will be superb for our players to compete against other World ranked opponents in front of a vocal home crowd.”
Squash Wales Director of Coaching, Mike Workman, said: “After the recent success of our senior players at a series of prestigious international events, the time is right to expose a greater number of Welsh players to this higher playing standard. With the current resurgence in both playing and spectator participation, it is our job to generate increased publicity and coverage for Welsh squash – at home and further afield.”
