Why Play Squash?

With four recently renovated courts and enviable facilities, squash is going from strength to strength at Kings. Whether players have 30 minutes or two hours to play, squash will provide them with a burst of energy that is both invigorating and rewarding.

Squash is played all year round, but is most popular in the Autumn and Spring terms. Pupils can choose it as a full time sporting activity or just play socially once a week. From engagement and development right through to high performance, Kings provides the opportunity for all.

The sport is played full time in games sessions on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, as well as an activity session on Wednesdays. For higher performance players the squad train on Tuesday lunchtimes and there are individual sessions organised throughout the week where specialist coaches help with any specific requirements the players have.
