New 4-Week Beginner Squash Course Starting 23rd April

6 April 2022

Are you a racquets member looking to learn the basics of Squash and how to progress your game to the next level?

Our new four-week course will 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 and early learners. It’s also a great opportunity to meet other players. You will cover 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. Most 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 8 members on the course so you will have lots of tailored support from the coach.

The course runs every Saturday afternoon from the 23rd April through to the 14th May from 2pm to 2.45pm. It is great value at just £20 and spaces can be booked at Reception now. Payment is required up-front and covers all four weeks.

We have racquets available to borrow but please do wear clean, non-marking, indoor shoes.

A similar beginners’ Racketball course will follow in June.  Register interest on this course at Reception now or email Steve Adams (see below). Steve will be in touch once the course details are confirmed.

Equally if you are interested in this Beginner Squash Course but can’t make the dates, please do let Reception or Steve know so we can get your name down on a waiting list as soon as possible.

Finally, we have other opportunities to get involved with squash and racketball at the Club. You can

request a free one-off taster from coach Ed Norris to whet your appetite in either squash or racketball. This offer applies to non-racquets members also.

Or the ladies might like to try one of our regular Ladies Prosecco nights. The next date is Thursday 21st April from 5.45pm to 7.15pm.
