  1. I am a beginner and I am asking for squash lessons. How much does it cost and time available?

  2. Great to see the Friday sessions starting up again at Finsbury leisure centre. Coming with a friend. Looking forward it!

  3. Hi Martin,
    Are the Friday night club nights continuing now the trial period is over?

  4. Hi i just booked and paid for the session on Friday, but when the payment went through it said see you Sunday? Please help

  5. Hi there. Am a member and league player at a club in North London, but am hoping to play some social games near where I work in the city centre. Would I be able to join some of the Friday sessions, or perhaps arrange a friendly on other days of the week?

    1. Hi Matthew,
      Yes, all are welcome on Fridays, 6 – 8pm.
      I’ll let the relevant divisions of the leagues know that you’re looking for mid-week games as well.

  6. Hi Martin,
    I’d love to start the Friday sessions, and have played a few times but would like some private sessions as I haven’t played in a whole. How do I go about arranging these?
    Thank you!

    1. Hi, recently moved to Islington area and looking for a squash club with coaching. Is that something you can help with?

  7. Hi Martin, I would love to join the Saturday ladies session. I’ve been playing squash for over a year and had a coach before so not a beginner. May I know when the next session would be? Thank you! 🙂

    1. Hi Alice,
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      You’re very welcome to join the next ladies session at Finsbury Leisure Centre – the first of 2023 – on Saturday 7th January 2023

  8. Hi Martin,
    I would love to join the Saturday ladies session this coming week. How do I sign up? Am I ok to turn up on the day and bring money? I have my own racquet and shoes.
    Many thanks,

    1. Hi Ottilie,
      Yes, if you already have playing experience you’re very welcome – just go to reception and ask for a Ladies’ Squash ticket.
