At Grove Park, we see our growing Junior squash section as vital to the development of our club.
From September 2022 we have teamed up with squash coaching providers - Squash+ to run all our junior development programmes.
We have Junior squash coaching sessions on both Wednesdays and Saturdays every week during term time.
All sessions will be paid for termly but everyone will be entitled to a free taster session if they have never attended before.
If you wish to book onto a course or your free taster session please contact Squash+ coaching on -
All you need to get started are appropriate sportswear and a pair of clean trainers (preferably with non-marking soles).
Rackets are available to borrow.
SQUASH+ through it’s squash player pathway programme has seen the development of junior players from beginners to fully capped international juniors. The SQUASH + 1.2.3 Programme allows pupils to transition through the fundamentals of the game building all the key skills to see them transition into the SQUASH+ Academy Programme.
This SQUASH+ 1.2.3. pathway will be the starting point for most of our young aspiring junior squash players. It is open to all young players, each level will have a mid week session and weekend session so hopefully everyone can attend either one or both. Please have a look at the programme below.
INTRODUCTORY / BEGINNER / IMPROVER 5 to 9 years old.*
This level is all about introducing the FUNdamentals of movement and sport in a fun squash environment.
IMPROVER / INTERMEDIATE 9 to 12 years old*
This level is focused on starting to lay the foundations of the game, learning all the required skills and how to implement them into a game structure.
INTERMEDIATE / TALENT 12 to 16 years old*
Once the young performer reaches the SQUASH+ level 3 they have a good grasp of all the basic skills and how to execute them in a game situation. These skills will be honed throughout this level whilst adding the final more difficult skills. A focus will also be paid to the tactical aspects of the game and development as a match player.
*Please note the ages are a rough guide, it will be at the discretion of the coaching staff which level your son/daughter should be in.
The final phase of the SQUASH+ Squash Development Pathway is the SQUASH+ Academy Programme. This invite only programme is for those young performers showing real dedication and talent for Squash. It is a weekly smaller group session, allowing more contact time with the expert coaching staff. Players will work through the programme from Aspire to Transitional to Elite SQUASH+ Academy.
Academy sessions are on Saturdays from 3pm.
