A safe environment: Our affiliation, for your assurance
Through our affiliation with England Squash and our Gold Club Charter Award, all of our coaches are CRB checked and first aid qualified. In addition, we also have a Safeguarding, Welfare and Equalities Policy in place, so you can be assured that your child is in a safe environment.
Safety and equipment
As with all sports, there is an element of danger involved when playing squash, particularly as the sport is played in a confined area with a fast moving small ball. However, to minimise the risk of injury we have adopted the recommendations of England Squash and Racketball for juniors to wear eye protection.
It is mandatory for juniors to wear eye protection for all sessions and competitions, whether playing at the clubhouse or away at other clubs during competition. Goggles can be provided to juniors on request and will be available at all junior sessions.
Appropriate footwear should always be worn when on court, and this should be non-marking in order to protect the courts.
Juniors can be provided with rackets and balls, if required.
