Our junior programme focuses on bringing in juniors of all ages and levels from beginners to national level. At Sandown our main aim is to ensure that the juniors are having fun on the squash court whilst developing their skills. From beginner level, basic hand-eye coordination and ball/racket skills will be taught moving onto technical and tactical skills at improvers and advanced level.

Our Junior Squash programme works in line with England Squash’s pathway and development. We start our programmes at mini-squash level, and progress our programmes through to national level. We welcome all ages and standards of juniors, from complete beginner to County level.

Through participation in our Junior Squash Academy, juniors can learn and improve on hand-eye, ball and racket skills, as well as agility, balance and coordination skills.

The junior sessions we run are split into 3 levels of play to ensure the juniors can see and understand an easy and clear progression through the programme. Currently, the weekly sessions are as follows:

SATURDAY
 
9.30-10.15am – Beginners – Aimed at juniors aged 5-10 years old taking their first steps on a squash court learning basic skills needed to advance in a fun environment.
 
10.15-11am – Improvers – Open to juniors who can hit a squash ball consistently and already have the basics skill set for a 3+ shot rally.
 
11.11.45am – Advanced – For juniors who can hit the majority of shots needed in a match consistently and understand the basic technical and tactical aspects of squash.

Please note that these age groups are guidelines only, and each individual will be assessed on their level and ability, and placed accordingly. Our in-house squash coach will help encourage juniors to take their next steps into a County development programme as and when they reach the appropriate ability.
