Air-IT is proud to unveil our latest community support initiative – sponsoring the team kit for the Nottingham Squash Academy.
The Academy is part of Nottingham Squash Rackets Club, the premier club of its kind in the East Midlands. Based in the prestigious Park area near the city centre, the Club offers superb facilities for squash and racketball players of all ages and abilities.
Nottingham Squash Academy Team Members
The Nottingham Squash Academy aims to develop the playing skills of Nottingham’s up and coming squash players through a grass roots to elite level squash programme. Talented youngsters will enjoy regular, first class training sessions and opportunities to compete at club, county and national levels. As well as learning from the Academy’s own experienced coaches, junior players will also benefit from guest coaching sessions run by world-ranking squash professionals.
Our new sponsorship deal means that the Air-IT logo and web address will feature prominently on Academy players’ shirts and hooded tops. It’s the latest development in our long-term association with squash and racketball in the Midlands area, which has been growing for many years.
Many of our staff and management team are hugely keen on Racket Sports, including our Directors James Healey and Todd McQuilkin, who play in the Men’s 1st Premier league Squash and Men’s 1st Racketball teams at Ilkeston’s Manor Health and Racquets Club. And in August last year, four Air-IT employees entered the UK-Racketball Series Tournament, held at the Nottingham Squash Rackets Club, resulting in a Grade B win for James.
Previous Air-IT sponsorship deals have included the Manor Squash and Racketball 1st Teams and the unprecedented treble winning David Lloyd (Aspley) Premier Squash team, numerous UK-Racketball series events, as well as a three year deal with the Nottinghamshire Squash Rackets Association.
Commenting on Air-IT’s sponsorship of Nottingham Squash Academy, General Manager, Alistair Gorrie, had this to say. ‘As one of the UK’s leading squash academies, it’s only right that we should be sponsored by a leading local firm. As an established provider of IT support to companies across the East Midlands, Air-IT fits the bill perfectly. We’re delighted with the sponsorship deal and look forward to developing this mutually beneficial relationship in the future.’
