This October, we’re celebrating all things squash (the sport that is!) at Edgbaston Priory Club with a series of events to introduce all ages to this fantastic sport.
Any new Member joining the Club as a Racquets Member this month will be entitled to a free Give it a Go course in Squash. If you’ve never tried it before, here are five good reasons to give it a go!
Work Every Muscle Group
Squash can help to build strong, shapely leg and bum muscles – the sports require lots of dynamic lunging to give you that toned look! Moving to and hitting a ball that is also moving also helps strengthen the back and shape the abdominals.
Squash is a great alternative to visiting the gym. You can burn around 650 calories per hour on court and not even realise you are doing so.
You only need thirty minutes to get a great all-round workout, so even the busiest people can fit it in around work, family and other commitments. Every Wednesday we host a Squash n’ Business lunchtime event for Members and their colleagues to squeeze in a game of squash and a business lunch in between their busy work hours.
As well as developing your fitness levels, you’ll meet lots of new people through the leagues and social events. Held on Tuesday (squash) and Thursday (racketball) evenings, our club nights are a great opportunity to meet and play with other members and then enjoy a drink and bite to eat in the bar afterwards.
For All Ages & Abilities
Squash can be played by all ages and abilities, from junior to adult, beginner to professional.
Alongside our Squash courses for new Members, we’re hosting events for Juniors this month too. These include:
Junior Open Silver | 6th – 8th October
Come and watch the brightest and best young squash players compete in the Open Silver Event.
World Squash Day | 14th October
Saturday 14th October is World Squash Day. To celebrate this national day we are giving Juniors the opportunity to bring a friend along to their squash session, this gives a perfect opportunity for them to share their love for squash and show off their skills!
Mini-Series Squash Event | Starting 14th October
Beginning on World Squash day, Edgbaston Priory Club is hosting a series of squash events for all junior squash players who are new to squash and ready to play matches against other players of a similar standard. All players will get at least three matches. Prices are £15 per event, or £55 for all four events, plus a T-shirt. To find out more, contact Deon Saffery on 07947 989 776.
