The first of two Irish Squash Summer camps took place in Old Belvedere last week. Coach Deirdre Faul took 16 squash campers through their paces for the week in all aspects of mini squash. Brian McNally from Old Belvedere also called in to go through the squash rules and referee area of the game. Friday was pizza and prize giving and Cathy Quinn, Operations Manager with Irish Squash called in to assist. Well done to all and we look forward to welcoming the new junior members to Irish Squash.

We always need extra coaches with availability on weekdays during school hours. Please contact the squash office with details and qualifications on [email protected]
