Who are Off The Wall Squash?

 

Off The Wall Squash CIC was formed in 2014 by a group of enthusiastic and dedicated people with vast experience in organising, coaching and playing squash.

Whilst developing the Academy in Colchester we will also work in a variety of areas including; Coach Education and mentoring, teacher training, school squash, tournaments and exhibitions, player support and development.

We have chosen to register Off The Wall Squash as a ‘CIC’ – Community Interest Company, this means that any profits made will be used for the development of squash. CIC’s are a relatively new Government initiative that allow companies to be formed and registered with Companies House and operate to benefit the community without the strict rules that are applied to charities.
