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 junior program has made up the majority of the Provincial Junior Team over the past decade 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 their schooling abroad being able to play squash at Ivy League Universities. We’ve had athletes attend a number of Ivy League Universities including Dartmouth, Penn and Cornell.
Our Head Professional, Trevor Borland, has been the Manitoba Junior Provincial Team Head Coach for the past 18 years. Trevor has been the Head Coach of the last four Canada Games Teams in 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015.
Trevor was the assistant coach for the Canadian Junior Boys Team at the World Championships in 2006. He was also the Head coach of the boys team at the Pan Am Junior Championships in Peru 2008, Head coach of the Canadian Team at the 2010 World University Championships in Australia. Trevor was the assistant coach at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India for Team Canada.
Over the past 5 years we have hosted Canada’s biggest and longest running Professional Womens’ Tournament, The Winnipeg Winter Club Women’s Open. This tournament attracts players from all over the world who are playing professionally and gives our members and our own competitive players a chance to see this high level of squash and for some, a chance to compete with them as well.
We offer a once per month complimentary starter program, as well as new member enrollment lessons to help get you started and on your way in squash.
In our Programs we strive to help athletes reach their best as both an athlete and a person.
