COACHINGSOCIAL, TEAM, CLUBJUNIOR

Squash is an exciting part of the St George’s Hill Lawn Tennis Club’s present and future. We have had significant recent success with several home-grown players reaching world acclaim on the professional tour as well as our Premier Squash League team finishing runners up in 2015. This, with the hosting of international events, such as the 9Telecom Legends tournament, the Channel VAS Championships, the British Open qualifying and Surrey Junior Open has meant that the Club is very much making its mark on the squash world.

Members are able to enjoy the same facilities as some of the world’s best with the opportunity to play on our all glass exhibition show court, which converts to act as a doubles court, as well as three other glass backed courts.

Squash Coaching

The squash coaching programme at St George’s Hill offers something fantastic for everyone, whether you are a junior or adult, a novice or professional. Our squash programme is led by our Head Squash Professional, Danny Lee. He is supported by an experienced team of England Squash and Racquetball qualified coaches with many ex-professionals on the team.

All new members are welcomed to Club with a complimentary one-to-one lesson with one of experienced professionals. After hitting some balls and playing some points, our coach will be able to guide any new member on the best starting point for their squash journey at St George’s Hill.

To support the performance of our teams, coaching is on hand from Danny Lee (pictured on the left), to ensure the highest league results. Coaching includes one to one advice on game tactics as well as team support and strategy.

Our junior coaching programme has had significant success in recent years with several players including Tom Richards, current world top 12, Joe Lee current world top 29, Charles Sharpes no 50 and Alex Ingham 118. We have had 10 National Junior Number Ones in the last 20 years , several of whom are competing on the PSA World Tour, including Charlie Lee who won 6 of his 7 matches at Number 1 for England in the 2016 World Junior Championships. Tristan Eysele, Stuart Hadden and Matthew Broadberry are all former St George’s Junior Champions also playing in the PSA World Tour. Further to this Matthew Broadberry represented England Under 19’s in the European Junior Championships 2016 and British Universities in The World University Championships 2016.

Lessons follow the England Squash and Racquetball guidelines ensuring players are given a firm foundation in squash and enjoy themselves at the same time.

FUN, ENGAGING & CHALLENGING

Social, Team & Club Competitons

Social Squash

We hold two structured social sessions a week. On Thursday evenings we hold Club Night, open to everyone, and on Wednesday there is a Ladies Squash Morning. There is no need to sign up for either of our weekly social sessions and there is no charge. Members simply come along, meet new people and hopefully have an enjoyable game of squash. There are also informal groups running on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10.30am.

Team Squash

For those members who may wish to compete for the Club we have five men’s and two ladies teams in various divisions as well as two very competitive veteran teams. Many of our teams have regular social gatherings and are always on the lookout for new players.

Club Competitions

Whilst some squash clubs have experienced a plateau in popularity in recent years, St George’s has gone from strength to strength, mainly due to our competitive success. Our squash honours boards show the history of competition at the Club with competitions such as the Edwardes Cup, Webber Cup, Roddick Cup and Chairman’s Challenge going back many years. Each of these competitions is open to all members with the Club Champions crowned at the Squash Dinner Dance.

To keep you match tight in between the main Club tournaments members are able to enter squash boxes each month. The boxes are a great way to meet new people and with over 15 leagues available, there will be a game that suits whatever your level.

FOR ALL AGES

Junior Squash

Junior classes are run on Tuesday afternoons between 4.15pm – 6pm and on Thursdays from 5.15pm – 6.30pm, for all standards from beginner up to performance players. Details can be found at Reception.
