ACCESS TO COACHING FOR TEAM PLAYERS
Team players will have access to weekly coaching with one of our coaches as well as weekly squad trainings. To cover some of the costs, the club may ask that all team players pay a small sum of £25 on top of the regular membership, which can be paid online on the left side of this page. Considering a single session with a coach can cost from £15-£35 an hour this is a brilliant deal! For more information regarding coaching structure and team training, please contact Owain Taylor (email@example.com) or Lauren West (firstname.lastname@example.org)
IMS BOX LEAGUES - Please email Hannah Bishop (email@example.com) stating your ability and contact details. You will be put into a group with 5 or 6 other players of similar ability and you arrange to play them in your own time and send the result to Hannah. If you win most of your games then you'll be promoted and the challenge is to work your way to the top of the tree! Box leagues are for IMS squash members only.
CLUB DAY – 1pm - 3pm every Sunday (starting 16th October) at DRSV. Coaching will be available. The sessions on the 9th will run as a taster session - if you are thinking of joining the squash club then this session is for you! See our website for more details. Club day is for social members only.
