Memorial Squash Program Gives Kids a Chance to Play 

Rob LeNoury’s passing in April 2020 left a hole in the hearts of his family, friends and the squash community. But his passion for squash and youth development lives on through his legacy with The Roster Sports Club’s newest initiative – The Rob LeNoury Memorial Squash Program.

The program, offered through family-raised funds and a partnership with North Okanagan Youth & Family Services Society (NOYFSS) (where Rob worked for 14 years), introduces eight kids between the ages of eight and 14 to the game of squash – something Rob would be thrilled about. A gentle giant with a big smile, Rob was a regular at the club since moving to Vernon in 2003. A former competitive squash player, he was passionate about all sports — as a player, fan and father.

To date, funds for the memorial program have been provided by family, who hope to run the program annually. If anyone is interested in contributing to this program in Rob´s memory, they may do so by contacting Katrina LeNoury at 250.260.5946.
