Squash & Racketball Coaching in Solihull
Solihull Arden has a great team of Squash and Racketball coaches, which consists of one full time coach and two assistant coaches. Together they offer adult and junior Squash and Racketball coaching programmes for both members and non-members, as well as doing induction sessions with new and potential members.
The junior squash coaching at Solihull Arden club is made up of a comprehensive programme of group sessions, combine these with Squash and Racketball private coaching and it is safe to say Solihull Arden offers rounded tuition. All our coaches have clearance to work with children and the club has a child protection officer.
As part of the Club Mark charter the club offers community programs e.g. free taster sessions and coaching to non-members and schools. Squash for Schools in Solihull make up a large part of this and local schools that benefits from this are: Sharman’s Cross Junior School and Ruckleigh School. We also work with other schools, either by visiting them at their facilities or by the school bringing students to the club. Currently, these schools are: Tudor Grange Academy, Smith’s Wood School and Coleshill Heath School. All of this was a big contributing factor to England Squash and Racketball awarding Solihull Arden Club the accolade of “Club of the Year” in 2012.
