Children of all ages can benefit enormously from playing squash and racketball. It provides an excellent outlet for their boundless energy and enables them to appreciate the discipline of learning a sport and to understand the social demands of the game.
Junior squash coaching takes place on Sunday afternoons between 3.00pm and 5.00pm during term time and operates a pay and play system, with no booking necessary. The session caters for children between the ages of 7 and 18 and of all abilities. The club's team of coaches work on a rota so there is always one coach ensuring the children are fully engaged and actively involved for the whole period.
The cost is £7 for the 2 hours (£5 for members).
Our aim is to develop junior squash players technique and skills and let them experience competitive sport; many of the children go on to play in the club's junior teams. The children are guided through a proper warm-up by participating in a range of fun, non-racket based activities before embarking on more formal drills that aim to develop the full range of shots. Practice matches then allow the children to apply their newly acquired techniques and skills in a competitive environment.

TWSRC's juniors are encouraged to play competitive squash in the West Kent Junior Box Leagues which are held monthly at one of the participating clubs, Limpsfield, Knole Park, Poult Wood, St John's and TWSRC. This allows the juniors to play all of their box matches in one session against players of a similar standard to themselves. See http://www.squashlevels.com/boxes.php?action=show_boxes&boxid=204. This was started in March 2015 and has been a roaring success and has allowed players of all abilities, from county standard to complete beginner to compete.
