Duration:
Weekend courses run from 7pm Friday to 5.30 pm Sunday, with a bit of spare time in between. All programmes are carefully ‘paced’, so survival is not a problem.

Venue:
Courses now usually take place at the splendid Bluecoat Leisure Centre, at Christs Hospital School, near Horsham, Sussex.  This warm and airy venue has proved to be excellent for staging all manner of Squash events, and is ideal for the Adult Courses.

Directions:
Christs Hospital is to be found just off the A-24, south of Horsham.  It is signed from the Hop Oast roundabout.  For those with sat.nav., the postcode is RH13 0YB.  Simply follow signs for 'Sports Centre' once on the School campus.  For those travelling by train, 'Christs Hospital' Station is on the mainline out of London Victoria to Bognor Regis, and is only a 5 minute walk from the Leisure Centre.

Each course is tailored to those who apply but is designed to be suitable for a wide range of standards and experience, from ‘improver’ through to club team player. If you are interested but anxious about your playing level, call Graham for reassurance!

Age:
Players should be over 18, but there is no upper limit!

Format:
Weekend courses comprise 15 hours of coaching.
Players are arranged in groups of no more than four to a court and the programme emphasises:
 

bulletrefining racket skills,
bulletimproving shot selection and
bulletreducing error

so there is both a technical and a tactical content; there may well be time for a little fitness work too!

All players receive a course folder of notes, and the whole approach can best be described as ‘fun with hard work’.

Improvement is difficult to avoid!

Cost:
£225.00 per person.
Price include lunches and supper on the Friday but exclude accommodation.
