The NetSuite Open Squash Championships returns to San Francisco September 27–October 1 for its fifth year, and we’re thrilled to bring back the annual Corporate Squash Challenge to benefit SquashDrive, a Bay Area urban squash and academic program for at-risk children. Last year’s challenge was a huge success, raising more than $30,000 for the kids.
Our goal is to raise $50,000 once again to help fund our emerging SquashDrive College Prep Program. We’ve been in operation since 2010 and our oldest students, recruited back in 4th grade, are now in 10th grade and looking ahead to college. These high schoolers hope to follow in the footsteps of students from other national urban squash and education programs who’ve seen a 97% college matriculation rate.
And you can help. For $5,000, your company can join several of the top companies in the Bay Area for a friendly squash competition on the glass court in Justin Herman Plaza on September 30 and October1. You—or someone from your company—will compete against three or four other players in a round robin-style tournament in the glass show court on Friday, September 30 from 2:00 to 6:00 PM. The top two players will then face off in a championship match on Saturday, October 1 at 7:00 PM.
Not only will someone from your company have the chance to play on the new state-of-the-art NetSuite Challenge glass court (with plenty of press), but you also will receive one ticket to the Open semifinals and an invitation to be a part of the check presentation ceremony. Want more tickets? $7,500 will get you a playing spot, a four-seat VIP package for the semifinals and finals, and an ad in the Open program.
All money will go directly to SquashDrive, and contributions are tax deductible, except for the value of the goods and services provided.
