Lymm Squash Club is launching a new coaching and development program for children aged 5-17 in Warrington and surrounding areas, aiming to introduce children to the popular sport of Squash.
The Lymm Squash Academy, which has already benefited from advice and support from England Squash and Racketball and a generous donation of equipment by Lymm and District Round Table, will feature rolling six week squash coaching programs on Saturday mornings led by coach Darren McCann. Sessions are tailored to suit children of any age and ability with each program concluding with a competition and prizes for participants.
“Squash is a fun, healthy and competitive sport that is easy for children to pick up and enjoy,” said Rob Spurr, Chairman of Lymm Squash Club. “We are very thankful to Lymm Round Table for their donation of Junior Squash equipment. With it we can offer the opportunity for children to try squash without parents needing to dip into their pockets.”
Under a new management committee, the entire club is undergoing a big development push and developing junior squash is one of its main aims. This year its first team, competing in the North West Counties Squash league, achieved promotion to the next division after completing an impressive unbeaten season. The club is hoping to introduce juniors who progress through its Academy into county and national competitions in the future.
