One of the ways that the Foundation hopes to carry out its work is by building up a membership base consisting of a group of like-minded squash and racquetball enthusiasts. Life-time members are dedicated to squash and racquetball; ambassadors who are a voice to the community and are as equally passionate about increasing participation, building awareness and enriching the experience for all.
Donors will be provided recognition of life membership if their tax deductible donation is $1,000 or more, and will receive invitations to attend events such as the upcoming 2019 Annual Dinner.
To become a member, please complete the membership form and post or email it to the Foundation.
As a not-for-profit association with the aim to support squash and racquetball in South Australia from grassroots participation to elite level competition; from juniors to masters; from players to coaches and referees; to facilities, infrastructure and equipment, we rely heavily on the generosity of like-minded individuals and families who contribute via a donation to help fund our vital work.
Squash and Racquetball Foundation SA is registered with the Australian Sports Foundation. Donations of $2 and over made to the Australian Sports Foundation in support of the Squash and Racquetball Foundation South Australia are tax deductible. Donations may be made at any time during the year.
As a Foundation partner you will be contributing to the growth and development of the game in South Australia, as well as supporting juniors and adults alike to compete and achieve their best. We are committed to working with like-minded businesses and organisations, and their staff, to build meaningful and sustainable partnerships across all of Squash and Racquetball Foundation SA initiatives.
Foundation Annual Dinner
Our annual dinner is a highly anticipated event which brings together like minded squash and racquetball enthusiasts and business leaders who as ambassadors with a voice to the community and are passionate about increasing participation, building awareness and enriching the experience for all. The dinner offers sponsors a strong social, community and networking opportunity.
Foundation Annual Golf Day

An Ambrose competition, held on an impressive course, with high quality service and cuisine throughout the day, this event provides a wide range of opportunities to be involved. From naming rights to individual holes, cart, beverage, closest to pin, longest drive, golf ball, on course activities, prize and dinner sponsorship.

Other sponsorship opportunities include events such as the South Australian Open, South Australian Racquetball Championships and the Adelaide Premier League competition.
The Foundation would like to offer an annual scholarship designed to nurture and assist a participant, coach or referee who show dedication and passion for the sport. The recipients aren’t necessarily those who show the most potential rather, these year-long programs are awarded based on the applicant’s current financial situation, commitment to their development and reinvestment in the squash and racquetball community. With comprehensive support from the board and sponsor, the scholarship allows participants to develop their sporting abilities and reach their goals.
Bequests provide a simple yet incredibly powerful way for all past, present and future players and supporters of squash and racquetball in South Australia to make a valuable contribution to support the growth and long-term future of the sport and ensure future generations also have the privilege to enjoy a lifetime of recreational or competitive participation.
