Time to take the court outdoors!

8598128294?profile=original

Lockdown has caused squash major problems, which is an understatement! In the last 10 months, the courts have been closed most of the time but that does not mean our Kent Juniors have to stop playing!!

Kent coaches have been taking their juniors outside, putting up the mini squash nets, and keeping squash alive for them. It has allowed the juniors to keep their fitness levels up along with their passion for our great sport.

The sessions are just as challenging as playing inside as they are cardio intensive. It does allow the coach to focus on the junior’s movement and overall technique with positive feedback from juniors and parents alike.

If you’re a coach, when restrictions are lifted try this at your club or a location near to you! you will be amazed at the outcome!

If you need any support please contact our Kent SDO Steve Franks, elsteveo969@hotmail.co.uk who will be pleased to help…
