Event Name


Fall Sqwish

Double, double, toil and trouble; sink it, bump it, bounce that bubble.

Outdoor basketball at Open Hearth Park! Make your way down Stable Drive to find the court!


Non-competitive, friendly, non-judgemental, drop-in basketball for anyone in Sydney. Sqwish is a place where queer people, trans people, two-spirited people and women are the first round draft picks.

Sqwish is open to anyone who wants to have fun in a safe and supportive sports environment. All skill levels are welcome. We promise lots of smiling, high 5s and deadly music.

Sqwish accepts "pay what you can" donations or a non-perishable food donation for the Ally Centre of Cape Breton.
