Ladies Club Night Launch!

28th April 2022

We’d like to introduce our plans to increase women and girls participation in PWSRC, with the launch of a new Ladies Club night on the first Weds of each month – starting from June 1st.

We’re keen to promote women’s participation in squash and racket ball in the club, from juniors to seniors. We want to make sure that the Club appeals to the whole community – whether that is girls at school or college, those who want to try out the sport for the first time, or mums who are returning to the sport after bringing up children. We both know from our own experience that it can be a bit daunting picking up a new sport, or returning after a break – and whilst the PWSRC Club Nights are brilliant, not all of us may have the confidence to turn up to play.

The new Ladies Club nights aim to provide a supportive, non-judgemental and fun way for women and girls to pick up the sport. So whether you want to develop a new skill, get fit and feel good, or have just have fun and a develop a new social activity, we think that there’s something for everyone at PWSRC.

 

Our monthly PWSRC Ladies Club nights will:

• Run from 7.30 – 9pm on the 1st Weds of the month (initially starting with two courts)

• Have coaching available if there is a demand for it, whether you are a beginner or just looking to build your skills

• Provide an opportunity to play racket ball as well as squash

• Use a WhatsApp group to help new players at the club to make their own contacts and arrange additional games

• Sessions will be FREE for the first 3 months (after that we will review – but by then we hope that you’ll all be ready to join the Club!)

 

We’ll make sure that we have a few spare rackets for those who might be new and don’t yet have their own.

 

In addition we will offer a Squash Buddy system to support women who want to try out the club. Existing members Katie Bennett and Rachel Lambert will be available for up to 2 sessions to those women or girls who are interested in joining the club, but want to try it out first. We hope to add other squash buddies in due course!

 

Finally, for those who want a more structured opportunity to improve their squash skills, Katie Bennett will be available for individual coaching sessions.

 

We will have our own email address at the club, squashgirlscan@poultwood.com this ties into the England Squash incentive, any queries please email us here.

So please spread the word amongst your family and friends and we look forward to seeing a great turn out on June 1st.
