We are proud to announce that BLTSRC has been selected by England squash to become a National Performance hub. We will become the focus for all the South of England’s best squash talent.
England Squash will help us to promote the club with a case study on their website, via press releases and by working alongside us to help promote our wonderful sport to all. We believe this relationship will be a very good thing for the future of the club.
The club will host England’s most talented southern based juniors for 8 weekend training camps over the course of the year. At no point will they be using all 6 courts simultaneously and a study of court usage over these times has given us the confidence that disruption to our members playing habits should be minimal. We will create a new zone of super off peak courts (to be charged at just £2 for 45 minutes) around these times to help incentivise our members to play as the camps start, finish and break for lunch as we want as many members as possible to see how these elite athletes train. Details of this are given in the courts schedule section below.
Under the tutelage of our head coach Adam Fuller and other Elite coaches from around the area we will also become a full-time base for professional players to train including Adrian Waller (WR 40), Alison Waters (WR8) and may other of the sports Elite stars. These sessions will happen during regular working hours and we don’t envisage any potential issues with court bookings. We will become only the 4th such base around the country to be recognised by England Squash and it puts us in the company of the other 3 bases which are Nick Mathews academy in Sheffield, the Pontefract academy headed by Malcolm Willstrop and Rob Owens Edgbaston academy. For those of you that follow the professional game you will know that these 3 camps have produced many of the world’s top pros over the last 10 years and we are proud to be associated with them.
