Why try squash?

  • Squash is all about enjoying your time on court, regardless of your age or ability
  • You'll be given some beginner-friendly activities to help you get used to hitting the ball. And if you miss, laugh it off and try again!
  • It's played indoors which means you'll stay dry
  • Squash provides a relaxed setting to make new friends
  • You can rock up solo or bring a friend to the session
  • It's a great activity to relieve stress. There's nothing like hitting a ball against a wall to forget about your worries
  • Most squash sessions are around 40-45 minutes, making it a quick, but fun, workout
  • It's a really enjoyable way to exercise, so if the gym or running isn't for you, squash is a great way to move your body
