Lilleshall Squash and Racketball club run regular junior squash coaching sessions for 5 to 17 year olds on Saturday afternoons.

Session Times:

  • Under 12s: Saturdays – 2.15 – 3.00pm
  • 12 – 17 year olds: Saturdays – 3.00 – 3.45pm

Coaching Objectives:

The primary objective of the junior sessions is that the children have fun. Along the way they will learn the skills required to play squash (or racketball) and also the rules of the game. Upper-most in the mind of the coach is that this is all done in a safe environment.

  • Level 4 – Professional Coach
  • Former England under 40s international squash player
  • 10 x Shropshire county squash champion

Our coach is CRB checked and has attended child protection courses.

Your First Session is FREE:

The club will be offering all junior players (aged 17 years old and under) their first coaching session completely free-of-charge, with the fee then reverting to the standard prices (see below).

Standard Fees:

The fees are:

  • £3.00 per child per session
  • £5.00 for two children attending a session together

All monies received will go towards equipment costs, payment of court lights etc.

Rackets, balls and safety goggles can be provided at no extra charge, so your child just needs to come dressed appropriately for squash (i.e. T-shirt, shorts and non-marking sole trainers) and be ready for fun.

Squash provides an excellent cardiovascular workout, allowing players to keep fit all year round. In one hour of squash, a player may expend between 600 to 1000 calories, while receiving an extensive upper and lower body workout. Played in 188 countries across the globe, squash has previously been rated by Forbes as the number one healthiest sport to play.

If you have a child or children between 5 and 17 years of age and would like them to learn this wonderful game, then just pop down to the courts on Saturday afternoons (at the appropriate times (see above) or email Club Chairman, Paul Evans (+44 (01952) 812655) for further details.
