Dan Lindsay receives Sport BC award

Squash club president recognized for countless hours promoting sport

Dan Lindsay, president of the Comox Valley Squash Club, was awarded one of Sport BC’s President’s Awards at a ceremony in Vancouver.

Each year Sport BC honours volunteers from member organizations who represent the spirit of volunteerism, and whose dedication, energy and commitment contribute to development of their sport or organization. This year Lindsay, of Assante Capital Management, was recognized for his commitment and contribution to the sport of squash in the Comox Valley.

As club president he has put in countless hours towards building membership and increasing the vibrancy of squash in the community. Lindsay co-ordinates the local squash league, helps manage tournaments and plans social events. He was instrumental a few years ago in establishing a junior squash program run through the three local high schools. Most recently, he has worked closely with city planners and architects to ensure the new Lewis Centre continues to meet the needs of this growing sport. Lindsay’s understated approach encourages others to volunteer, and fosters a fun and engaged membership.

The Comox Valley Squash Club is a non-profit organization comprised of approximately 100 players and volunteers throughout the Comox Valley. A regular Wednesday night league runs from October to April each year at the CRA Lewis Centre.  The club organizes local tournaments throughout the year open to all local squash players, and culminates in an annual BC sanctioned Easter Bunny Tournament which has been drawing players from all over the province for more than 30 years. This year the tournament will run March 21-24.

To encourage the development of squash in  the club has organized a junior development program, purchasing equipment, renting courts and providing instruction to interested students at the three local high schools.  Interest has been growing each year as students become more aware of the program and the fun they can have learning a new and exciting life sport.

For more information on any squash-related activities contact the Courtenay Recreation Lewis Centre, or call Lindsay.

“Congratulations Dan and thanks!” a squash club spokesperson said.
