COACHING / COURSES
A number of different coaching options are on offer for adults and juniors, from beginners to advanced performance group sessions. Individual, pairs or groups are all catered for. Adult squash & racketball courses also run throughout the year. They are a great way to improve your game.
Both internal and external tournaments are held throughout the year. These are generally held at weekends so as not to impact on member activity & court bookings. This also gives members a chance to come and watch.
There are also the annual Club Championships which are usually held in the spring months. All Rackets members are encouraged to participate as there are a number of categories to enter.
ADULT BOX LEAGUES
The Club operates squash & racketball box leagues which give members the opportunity to engage in regular competitive play with varying opponents.
The leagues are on the main squash notice board and run on a monthly cycle. Leagues can also be seen on the Club website in the member’s area.
If you would like to join these leagues there is a sign-up sheet on the squash notice board for the next run of leagues. Alternatively speak to Robbie directly if you need advice on which league you should be placed in.
