Squash4Schools introduces primary school children (yrs 3 - 6) to “Mini Squash” using inflatable rebound nets (Numacourts) which can be set up in a school hall, playground or classroom.
Numacourts are lightweight self-standing rebound nets against which the players hit the ball and try to return it before it bounces twice.
Squash4Schools organises inter-school mini-squash tournaments on behalf of a group of schools.
Mixed teams of 10 from the same year group represent each school at a tournament which takes place in one of the schools’ main hall.
4 portable courts are used and the event lasts approximately 1 hour.
We supply coaches, courts, rackets and balls and help children of all abilities learn the basics during sessions which are typically 45-60 mins long.
The frame is 2m high x 2m wide and can be inflated in less than 30 seconds. The ball is soft rubber, similar in size to a tennis ball.

PE lessons or after-school sessions today!
Key Skills Delivered
This mini-version of the real game of squash is a fun way to develop the 5Cs: Coordination, Concentration, Communication, Confidence and Cooperative Play.
After a few minutes of practice, we usually find that most children can keep a rally going with their playing partners and then play for points.
We show them the basic techniques to improve their shot selection, accuracy, and connection with the ball. We also provide information as to where they can play squash in the local area.
