2022 "Squash Dementia" Charity Singles Tournament!

Squash has famously been dubbed ‘the world’s healthiest sport’ and is noted for pushing players’ strength, endurance, flexibility, balance and agility to the limit. Saturday, May 7th, 2022, marks the 8th Annual "Squash Dementia" singles squash tournament, where 64 players take to the singles courts at the Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club and compete for the coveted title and trophy. The momentum we’ve built together over the first seven years will make the 8th annual “Squash Dementia” an even more memorable first-class event and experience.

Who Benefits?

Participating players will not only have a great time, they will be raising funds for the The Gerry & Nancy Pencer Brain Tumor Centre at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, where patients can feel at home while receiving state-of-the-art treatment and support, and where leading edge research is encouraged.
