VSL History

The History of the VSL (A work in progress)

The Vancouver Squash League has been active in British Columbia since the 1960’s when it was a part of the BC Squash Racquets Association (now known simply as Squash BC).

At that time the game was hardball. In 1977 a summer softball league was started and in 1978 a winter softball league was added. Tim Bale was both the President and Treasurer at the time of the “historic Evergreen meeting” that spawned the new league.

Today the VSL is still a non-profit organization run by volunteers. The VSL Board is voted in during their annual general meeting which is usually held between March and June. If you wish to serve on the board please inform the League Coordinator prior to the AGM.

Our league functions under the auspices of Squash BC which is a registered non-profit society dedicated to the “Promotion, Growth, and Organization” of squash in British Columbia. All players in the Vancouver Squash League are required to be members of Squash BC. (Why should I join Squash BC?)

The VSL thanks Greg Longster for suggesting the idea of having the finals of the Open and Women’s division playoffs played the night of the Wrap Party.
