Junior squash club every Saturday morning at Carlton Forum Leisure Centre.
This fun morning is designed for children and is based on Mini-Squash and Development player awards dependant on age group and level being taught. They will learn all the basics of playing squash and play competitive games within the sessions. The lessons are designed to be fun and rewarding with certificates awarded for reaching key stages of learning.
As they gain more experience and advance in levels, there will be chances to play in inter club competitions, graded tournaments and even county and national competitions.
All equipment, rackets and balls provided.
The morning at Carlton Forum is split into three sessions:
- Tots club age 3 to 6 years 09.00 - 9.45am £2.00
- Intermediate 7 to 10 years & Beginers 09.45 - 10.45am £3.60 (New children to squash would start in this session)
- Advanced 11+ years, 10.00 -12.00pm £3.60
Tots is where they will have fun playing games designed to develop the ABC's of movement. Agility - Balance - Coordination. They will develop ball skills such as throwing and catching, and begin to learn how to hold and use a racket. It will give them the skills to move up into the mini club
Intermediate is based on mini squash and they will learn all the basic shots, rules and play squash games. It is still based on having fun games and learning further movement skills. Beginners above age 6 would start here.
Advanced takes them to competition level learning more technical skills and game tactics. Developing their skill level to lead them up to senior squash level. Whilst the sessions are still built around having fun there is a greater element of carrying out the squash drills required to get to squad level.
