We run school tryouts and after-school clubs in Northants – principally at the clubs with four or more courts so that we can accommodate a number of school parties in one session; however we have successfully run smaller events at Brackley Squash Club which has two courts.
At Daventry Squash club we will put on two sessions with six schools at each: 13:00 – 15:00 and 16:00 – 18:00. The groups move between courts on an activity “carousel” (with one group resting) which includes agility exercises, ball games, and an introduction to hitting a squash ball.
These school festivals are organised in conjunction with Northamptonshire Sport, who facilitate the school’s attendance whilst we in the county squash setup deliver the activities.
These events are very popular with the primary schools in the area, as it gives them an opportunity to try out a sport that isn’t a part of the normal curriculum and the comments from the teachers are always positive and encouraging.
If you would like your school to have a tryout session, please contact us to arrange a meeting.
