Buddy Clubs

Each year a Squash Central Committee member is matched up with a club.  This is called the Buddy Club system and those committee members will be in touch with their buddy clubs and will attend a committee meeting or two throughout the year to offer advice and guidance as to how Squash Central can help the club to progress and grow.

Hosting Guidelines
If you opted to host a District event this year there are guidlines and assistance on offer specific to each event.  Please referance the event you are hosting for this year and if you have any questions at all contact the District Administrator.  It is expected that all guidelines abe met by the hosting club.  Failure to do this will affect future hosting selection.

Funding

Funding Opportunities

There are many organizations that supply funding for projects to sports clubs.  The Squash New Zealand website has some useful information as well as a spreadsheet of organizations and their contact details.  This spreadsheet is attached and has been editing to only list those that fund organizations in the Central District.

Advice on completing funding applications can be found at the following link.

Funding Applications

If you require further advice please don't hesitate to contact your District Secretary - Pauline Slovak.

It is very important to develop and maintain relationships with funders, particularly if you have been successful in receiving funding. There are some very simple things that we recommend you do, to ensure a positive ongoing relationship...

  • thank the funder, as many times as you can
  • keep your paperwork in order as the project goes so that the accountability report will be easy
  • be honest about spending (eg. if you want to change the donation slightly from the quotes, just ask them - they will usually be fine)
  • engage with the funders (eg. send them photos, letters, thank you cards etc)
  • complete the accountability report ON TIME (ask for an extension beforehand if necessary)

Referees

Referees are an integral part of our sport and anyone can become a squash referee. By doing so you'll develop observation, leadership, confidence and communication skills to be able to manage a squash game.  For more information check out the Squash NZ website or contact Central Refereeing Manager Mike Jack on mikejack@xtra.co.nz.
