County squash captain urges Wisbech public to pick up their rackets
THE LADIES county squash captain has urged the people of Wisbech to get involved with the sport.
Cambridgeshire captain, Faye Kowalewsky, who has lived in Wisbech all her life, has recently become a regional standard level three coach.
Now she wants to encourage all age groups to get involved in squash and racketball, one of the fastest growing sports in the UK, which she also coaches.
“You can’t get a much better work out than having a game of squash or racketball,” she said. “They are great sports that you can play all year round.
“It’s great exercise and a great opportunity to meet different people at your local club.”

Faye, a former county champion, has been playing squash for more than twenty years, first picking up a racket at the age of just seven.
“I’m targeting all age groups of Wisbech, there really is something in the sport for everyone,” she said. “The real highlight for me is getting the sport into the schools and introducing it to the kids.”

As a Cambridgeshire Development Coach, Faye currently coaches in primary schools and squash clubs across the county.
She leads a racketball session on Monday nights at Wisbech Squash Club, from 8-9pm, where everyone is welcome. Junior sessions are held in Outwell on Mondays and Fridays.
Faye also has intentions of starting a Wisbech session specifically for over fifties.
She said: “Racketball is a good alternative to squash as it uses bouncier balls and is not as fast paced,” she said. “Although it can be fast and furious at times, it is very beginner friendly.
“The courts at Wisbech are very underused. If people aren’t aware that it’s there then they aren’t going to use the facility. I’m trying to promote the sport and bring it to people’s attention.”
