Open Play Weekend Round Robin

 

Young players need time to be on court with each other without instruction. Do you know that this is why many people believe that the Egyptians produce the best players? They do plenty of unstructured squash play.

We believe it is very beneficial too.

So get your kids into our round robins on the coming winter weekends and let them accrue all the great benefits of uncoached play.

 

Timing: Saturday 2pm-4pm / Courts 4&5

2pm-3pm Green

3pm-4pm Blue
