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 more advanced improvers (those that play for the Club) are encouraged to come to the Tuesday session so that we have similar ability. The minimum requirement is to be able to hit both forehands and backhands as well as serve relatively consistently and we would encourage these players to come along on a Thursday.
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.
This is a brand new session that will start on 18th January and will be free of charge for juniors to come and play box matches, ladder matches, friendlies and general practice. This time will also be used for when we have inter-club matches. The session will have a coach on hand to ensure its smooth runnng and handy tips when required.
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!
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.
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 6 weeks to take you up to the February half term and will only be available to members. The payment up-front option will cost £20 and this will give you one free session. The same price will apply for the second half term leading up to Easter.
Finally, the elite session will only occur once a week for 2 hours and will cost proportionatly more at £10 per session.
For all adult sessions there is no up-front payment scheme and the cost is £5 for members and £7 for non-members.
