Squash is likely to get widespread promotion among juniors, following a study visit to Australia by Hong Kong Squash Rackets Association (HKSRA) development officer, Jane Li. Ms Li is currently in Australia to study how squash clubs there are managed on a community level. She will also be looking at the development of modified squash, mini-squash in schools, and ways to promote squash among juniors. 'In order to promote the sport on a broader basis, it is essential to strengthen the relationship between the HKSRA and its affiliated squash clubs,' Ms Li says. Ms Li is the second sports administrator selected under the Overseas Study Trip Programme to visit Australia to widen her knowledge of the development of the sport through sports clubs. Meanwhile, Matt Richardson, development director of the Hong Kong Amateur Rowing Association, was on a similar mission in Japan recently. Mr Richardson was there to study the structure of Japan's community rowing clubs. Using the experience gained, Richardson will focus on strengthening the structure of Hong Kong's affiliated rowing clubs by helping them to define their goals, develop a coaching structure, and organise long-term programmes for club members. 'There are over 900 rowing clubs in Japan, and in Hong Kong we have less than 10. Long-term and organised activities are needed to maintain the interest of existing club members and attract new members,' Richardson said.
