Squash Academy

GHS has 3 courts which are open to learners and team players Monday to Friday afternoons and exclusively to the Academy boys on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings before school. Squash is a sport in which you and your opponent are enclosed within these four walls. Our goal during this time is to allow these boys as much on court exposure and experience as possible and in doing so aiming to simulate the intensity of a real match.

It is amazing how this sport sparks interest for 1st timers as they realise the deafening sound the squash ball produces as it strikes the front wall and it is this sound that drives the boys towards improving themselves. At the Academy we facilitate this development, providing each player with advice and sport specific training to meet the fitness and skills levels required to compete at provincial level. It is part of the programme to identify strengths and weaknesses of each player and make them aware of areas where they can improve. We encourage both on and off court training as well on court solo sessions focused on fine-tuning favourite shots and technique.
