Give Squash a Try on International Women’s Day

10 February 2020

As members will know, we love Squash and are always keen to get new players involved in this brilliant sport. We know that once members try it, they will get hooked – just like the rest of us! So, when coaches Jen and Juliet approached us about doing a series of activities for International Women’s Day, on 8th March we didn’t hesitate in saying yes.

They’ve put together a great programme with details as follows:

9.30 – 11am –Women’s Coaching – racquets and non-racquets members are welcome to this session. We will have two coaches on hand, and it is suitable for all playing standards.

11.45 – 12.30 – Women’s Matches – this is for those ladies looking for some competitive match play.

1.15 – 2.45pm – Women’s Squash Taster – as the name suggests an opportunity to try Squash for the first time.  Any ladies aged 14 and over.

3.30 – 5pm – Girls Junior Coaching – this session is for girls aged 7+ of all playing abilities including beginners.

All the sessions are free, but please do sign up at Reception so that we get an idea of numbers. For the ladies Squash taster, we are welcoming non-members so if you would like to bring a friend or family member please do (but please book them in also). Don’t worry if you don’t have a racquet, we have plenty you can borrow. Please do wear non-marking, indoor shoes though to protect our courts.

If you can’t make it on the 8th March, we now run monthly Ladies Squash & Prosecco evenings. The next dates are 11th March, 29th April and 20th May, 7.15 – 8.45pm. These are suitable for all abilities and are a great way to try Squash or improve your playing standard and then have a relax in the Club Lounge over a glass of Prosecco. These sessions are free and available to racquets members but again please do book at Reception.

And if you would like to start Squash but are not sure where to begin, you can book in for a squash welcome with Ed. He will hit some balls with you and assess the best available options for you moving forward, be it further coaching, social squash or joining us competitively. This can be arranged at a time that suits you and Ed – please ask at Reception for details.
