Junior Squash Club

We're excited to launch a refreshed and exciting Junior Squash Club that will replace the CaTTS club, running on a Saturday morning. 

Delivered by our exceptionally talented coaches, small groups of up to 16 players can learn the rules and techniques of the brillaint game we all love, Squash! 

The sessions will include FUN games and skills with rewards (certificates and stripes on their rackets). 

The Junior Squash Club will focus on individual progress and enjoying sport, rewards/badges are a good way of giving your child;-

  • An indication of progress made.
  • Motivation to achieve targets.
  • A sense of pride and confidence.
  • An incentive to pursue Squash.
