Beginners and Improvers Squash and Racketball Courses at Club Towers

2 December 2022

We have a great team of Squash and Racketball coaches here at the Club and have in 2022 started running a series of beginner courses which we are pleased to say we are continuing and building upon in 2023.

We will now be offering three-week beginner/improver courses which provide an introduction to the game, the basic rules and techniques. Led by one of our England Squash qualified coaches, the course is perfect for beginners,  early learners and improver players.   They also offer a great opportunity to meet other players. You will cover as a minimum the following aspects of the game:

  • Correct grip
  • Foundations for a sound swing on forehand and backhand (balance, racquet preparation, swing path, contact point, follow-through, etc.)
  • Basic movement patterns around the court
  • Game plans
  • Rules of the game

The coach will tailor the sessions to the needs of the participants. Equally importantly, they will help you to identify your next steps: the playing opportunities we have at the Club, including social club sessions, box leagues and follow-up private coaching options. There will be no more than 6 members on the course so you will have lots of tailored support from the coach.

The next Beginner Squash Course will run on Saturday 21st , 28th January and 4th February, 2 – 3.30pm.

The next Beginner Racketball Course will run on Saturday 25th Feb, 4th and 11th March, 2 – 3.30pm.

All courses are £40 and spaces can be booked at Reception now. We have racquets available to borrow but please do wear clean, non-marking, indoor shoes.

If you can’t make the above dates but are interested in a future course, please ask the Reception team for future dates. If you would prefer a free one-off taster from coach Ed Norris to whet your appetite in either game, again please contact Ed directly to arrange on [email protected].
