Frequently asked questions

What do I need to bring?
All you need is comfortable workout clothes, supportive shoes, a drink bottle and a sweat towel.

How often should I play squash?
For the best results we suggest you get on court at least twice a week. Take a look at our videos to help you learn the basics, or chat to a fellow club member for some tips.

How experienced do I need to be?
The great news is that squash can be for people who have never played before, those who have received some basic coaching or participants returning after a long absence. It only takes a few sessions before you will start to feel comfortable on the court so don’t give up!

What if I can’t do the moves?
The technique for squash is super simple so even the most inexperienced player will pick it up in no time. Your coach is there to work with you and provide you with challenges that meet your needs. You’ll find your skills and fitness will improve over a number of sessions.
