Beginner programme

Overview

Spencer Club are very proud of our range of players across the club which means that everybody gets to enjoy their squash, regardless of their standard.  A number of our members discovered squash at Spencer Club or re-discovered their passion for the game when they walked through our doors.  Many people are keen to start playing squash either to improve their fitness, participate in a highly competitive individual sport or to meet other like-minded people.  Whatever your reason for wanting to play squash, Spencer Club have a fantastic beginner Programme designed to help you discover your love for the game.

Beginner squash lessons

George Greene, a member of our Spencer Club coaching team, has coached squash for a number of years and is responsible for our beginners squash programme.  George also takes some of our junior squash sessions and runs key elements of our Wandsworth community squash participation programme.  You can meet George and a number of other beginner squash players at our weekly beginner squash sessions taking place from 1.45pm to 3.15pm on Sundayafternoons.  The lessons are designed to introduce you to the game, help you to learn the basics and to provide you with the correct techniques in order to help you move onto the next level.

Improving your game

Once you have learnt the basics, why not get involved in our regular group coaching sessions to help move you up the ladder.  Our philosophy is to focus on all four aspects of the game to cover technical, tactical, physical and mental.  Most of our participants have learnt to focus on areas of their game that they didn’t previously realise even existed and have significantly improved their performance as a result.  See our Adult Programme for further details!

Spencer Club internal leagues – practice makes perfect!

As you build up your confidence, you will want to start playing regular semi-competitive matches against other players in order to experience valuable playing time and to develop your game strategy.  Our Spencer Club internal leagues span across all levels and will match you up against other players of similar ability.  Each month, you will get the chance to compete against a handful of other similar players and you will be able to progress through the divisions by earning promotions as your game continues to improve.  Don’t worry though – our members enjoy a good mixture of competition and social interaction so there is plenty of fun to be had!

Informal matches

If you are unable to commit to playing squash on a regular basis, then you may prefer to either contact other members to organise the occasional ad hoc match, or alternatively to attend our weekly Clubnights on a Tuesday evening from7pm onwards at a cost of only £5.  Our Clubnights are run by Roshan Mawar, our head coach, and offer players a combination of group coaching and match practice.  These are perfect for individuals with busy or unpredictable schedules as there is no need to register or commit in advance – simply turn up whenever it suits you to!

Wandsworth community squash participation programme

In addition to our beginner squash lessons, we are proud to organise regular squash participation programmes for people who live in the nearby area, for example: Earlsfield, Wandsworth, Wimbledon, Clapham, Tooting and Putney.  These provide people with the opportunity to start playing squash or to pick up from where they previously left off.
