About Us


The Canadian Jesters are organized along geographic lines into five regions – Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario, Western and Pacific, each managed by its own committee, with the national committee coordinating the whole. Members play games amongstĀ  themselves and promote their sport through games with schools, universities and other clubs. In Canada, squash is the primary game played. As well as playing matches, the Canadian arm of the Jesters Club works to develop the squash skills and sportsmanship habits of young men and women, which it does in various ways. In British Columbia and Ontario, this currently takes the form of sponsoring various junior tournaments and activities through Squash Ontario and by the efforts of individual Jesters on behalf of worthy juniors.

A branch of the Jesters Club was formed in British Columbia in 1956. At that time there were only two members, E.R. (Ned) Larsen, Headmaster of Shawnigan Lake School, and Dr. Kemble Greenwood of Victoria. Today the BC Jesters number 70+.

The BC jesters meet socially on a regular basis. They are actively involved with promoting junior squash, university play and they host an annual doubles tournament.
