Members of the Bay Area Squash Community celebrated Women’s Squash Week 2019 by attending the second annual Bay Area Women’s Leadership Luncheon Friday afternoon at the University Club of San Francisco.
The luncheon featured two guest speakers, Dr. Joan Steidinger, author of “Sisterhood in Sports: How Female Athletes Collaborate and Compete”, and Diana Kapp, author of “Girls Who Run the World.”
Facilitated by Squash Zone’s Aisling Blake and SquashDrive’s Lauren Patrizio Xaba, Steidinger and Kapp led a discussion centered around equality and empowerment in the world of sports.
Women’s professionals including two-time Oracle NetSuite Open champion Sarah-Jane Perry and Team USA’s Olivia Blatchford Clyne and members of the WSDA pro tour attended the discussion.
Proceeds supported a scholarship fund for young girls in the SquashDrive and Squash on Track programs to attend female enrichment camps during the summer.
