All you need to get started are loose fitting clothing and a pair of clean trainers (preferably with non-marking soles). Parents are welcome to watch or help (just bring your trainers).

Rackets are available to borrow.


INTERNAL COMPETITIONS

To help chart the progress of all the players we have just launched a junior ladder.
The season is rounded off in June with the annual club junior tournament. With lots of trophies, t-shirts for all and even a speed gun to measure how hard everybody can hit it, this is a fun event to end the year.

TEAMS

Grove Park has junior teams (under 12, 15 & 17) entered in the Greater Manchester Junior Squash League. Played against other local clubs,
matches start in October and are played once a month on Sunday mornings.

MINI SQUASH
The FUN way to learn and play





Mini Squash sessions were added so children from as young as five can join the fun.

Mini Squash is an exciting game that encourages children aged 5 to 11 to get on court and have fun. Using specialised equipment designed to help children learn the basic skills as well as develop coordination and balance, Mini Squash provides the ideal introduction to squash.
