Squash from the Mosque

Friday 7th June 2024

Calder Community Squash is a community-based not-for-profit company, committed to making positive changes through health and well-being. As part of their work in Park Ward, an area of Halifax faced with high levels of social deprivation, they identified a lack of culturally sensitive sporting opportunities. This was particularly evident for South Asian girls and women of the Muslim faith. To address this, the 'Squash from the Mosque' program was born!

We've been working with partners across Calderdale to showcase the great work that's already going on to tackle inactivity, explore our playlist and take a look for yourself.

Do you think you could help further? We're on the lookout for physical activity providers, community organisations and other system leaders to partner with us. Email: activecalderdale@calderdale.gov.uk.
