11.00 - 12.00: Racketball Beginners
This session is for complete beginners aged 4 – 9. The session involves a lot of the ABC’s (Agility, Balance, Coordination) and an introduction to squash. The main focus is on the juniors having fun whilst being active and learning lots of generic transferable skills that can be applied to all sports. The children also get the opportunity practice rackets skills helping their hand-eye coordination.
This session is aimed at juniors that are 10+ years and have had some squash experience or have played similar sports that are likely to help them consistently hit the ball. There is a big range within the group and abilities range from those that can hit the ball but with little control over where the ball goes to players that are close to becoming part of our elite section. The minimum requirement is that they can hit both forehands and backhands as well as serve relatively consistently.
This session is for players that are of a county level or above. Again, there can be a big range within this group as an elite U13 player is not of the same standard of an elite U19 player. So in order for this to work the Head Coach picks which players will be suitable for these sessions and therefore is invitation only.
Squash Training Box 1-10
If you have not tried it out yet, please come down have fun and improve your game with players of a similar standard. This session involves drills with advice on technique, movement and general tactics.
Squash Training Box 10+
This session is exactly the same as above but for those that are in the boxes 10 and above. These sessions are designed to give players useful tips and hints to help them improve their game whilst practising their skills with players of a similar standard at a fraction of the price of an individual lesson.
This is an established session that has been running for a while but we would always welcome a new face. So, if you are female and interested, please pop down!
Adult Racketball (Beginners and Advanced)
Racketball is proving more and more popular both at BLTSRC and nationwide and proves an alternative to squash that is gives you a real cardio workout and is slightly less pressure on your joints. Racketball seems to be bridging the gap between squash and tennis so why not try it out. This session is for all standards including those that have never played before!
The advanced session is more for the team and box league players and the beginners session is aimed at those who are just starting out with racketball. The beginners racketball session on a Friday morning will work in the same way as the ladies session in that you need to book in advance and there needs to be a minimum of 4 players.
With the exception of the Elites (see blow), all junior sessions will continue to be £4 for a member and £5 for a non-member. The up-front payment scheme this term will last 7 weeks to take you up to the October half term and will only be available to members. The payment up-front option will cost £24 and this will give you a free session. The same price will apply for the second half term leading up to Christmas.
Finally, the elite sessions have been extended from an hour to 75 minutes and will cost proportionately more at £5 per session to reflect the additional 15 mins training.
For all adult sessions there is no up-front payment scheme and the cost is £5 for members and £7 for non-members.
