WWC Squash Programs
Over the past decade our program has trained 3 different National Champions, 4 different Canadian Junior Open Champions, a US Junior Open Champion and a Pan Am Games Champion. Other accomplishments and opportunities that alum from our program have taken part in over the past decade include: Junior World Championships, Junior Pan Am Championships, The Commonwealth Games, The Canada Games, British, Scottish, US and Canadian Junior Opens and the Canadian Nationals. Our program has made up the majority of our Provincial Junior Team which travels to junior tournaments in Canada. 6 of our athletes have been part of the Canadian Junior Squad.
Several of our athletes through squash have had the opportunity to take both their squash and schooling abroad and play squash at Ivy League Universities. We’ve had athletes attend a number of the Ivy league schools including Dartmouth, Penn and Cornell.
Our Head Professional, Trevor Borland, has been the Manitoba Junior Provincial Team Head Coach for the past 15 years. Trevor has been the Head Coach of our last three Canada Games Teams in 2003, 2007 and 2011. and is the head coach for the upcoming 2015 Games.

In our programs we strive to help athletes reach their best as both an athlete and a person.
This is our most popular league! Players sign up individually and are arranged matches each week with players of a similar level... Each week an email is sent out on the Friday to those in the league asking whether or not you are able to play on the Monday night coming. The lineup of matches is then sent out on the Sunday evening so people are aware on Monday morning of whom and when they play. Matches start as early as 5:00 pm so please indicate any restrictions.
To sign up for the league please contact Trevor. Players of all levels are welcome and needed.
|When:||Mondays starting at 5:00 pm|

Our Online Squash Ladder gives a little more competitiveness to your weekly games if that is what you are looking for. Each participant is given a rank within the ladder. Participants challenge one another around them in the ladder by clicking on the opponent they would like to challenge. An email, with which you can send a note, is then sent to the player to let them know you would like to play. A great way to find new and challenging games.
