Junior coaching

The club has been running junior coaching at Poult Wood for over 15 years and it is a real success both from a playing and social perspective.

Coaching is provided by licensed, qualified coaches and time is also allocated to playing games.

Each group is based on age and ability with a maximum of 4 players per court and with a coach on each court.

Junior sessions include all the fundamental skills for squash; ball skills, racket skills, agility, balance and speed through fun and age-appropriate squash games. It is all about teamwork and having fun!

Parents are welcome to stay and watch from the viewing gallery if they wish.

Saturday mornings

We run  sessions for for 8 – 18-year-olds from 9.30 and 12.30pm on Saturday mornings throughout term time.

As players progress they can take part in the West Kent Junior Leagues which are suitable for players from age 7 upwards and absolutely all abilities.

Thursdays after school

We also run an after-school club for 4 -11 year olds from 4:00 – 5:00pm during term time.

Pre-school Squash is a parent and pre-schooler class where children can develop the fundamental ball and racket skills; balance, strength, and agility through rolling, throwing, jumping, and coordination activities.

Parents/carers will work with their children – there will be lots of teamwork games and lots of fun!
