Chinese Community Centre squash taster session


We recently held a “Squash Taster’ session for a group of juniors from the London Chinese Community Centre, organised by Centre Director Beverley Lin.

During the 80-minute session the group, aged from 11 to 16, most of whom had never played racket sports before, were shown:

  • Squash Specific warm ups (ie movement around the court)
  • Introduction to the court markings
  • Correct grip of the racket
  • Basic safety and playing rules
  • Correct racket swing
  • Serve and game play and tactics

We finished with a three-quarter court session to give the newcomers to squash an opportunity to test their skills on each other.

Beverley assures me that they all thoroughly enjoyed the session and sent a few pictures!
