I offer individual Squash and Squash 57/Racketball lessons to any standard of player, including absolute beginners.
What we do in any individual session can vary from player to player. At the start of the lesson I would usually discuss with a player what they would like to achieve from a session. If they have a good idea of a particular element of their game that they need to work on then we can work in that area. If I am seeing a player for the first time I will suggest that we play a few competitive ralleys so that I can assess their style of play and identify any weaknesses and also any strengths that they have. After giving the player my assesment we will then decide what may be the best elements to work on. usually it will be working on a particular area of weakness but it is also important to work on areas of strength. The sessions may start off with some simple routines so that technique can be worked upon. The routines can then be made progressively more challenging. This may involve: adding extra shots; adding more pressure; adding more options; etc... At the end of the session we may finish with a conditioned game or a normal game. We will then discuss how the session has gone I will suggest what the player needs to work on in the future. If the player requires further lessons I will make suggestions upon the areas we could work on in future lessons.
A single individual lesson is 45 minutes in duration;
The cost for an adult is £25 (£22 for juniors);
I offer a discount for Blocks of Lessons (paid in advance);
A block of 5 lessons is £115 (£100 for juniors);
Important: The pupil also pays any guest fee and/or court fee which may be applicable. This varies from club to club. For example:

Normally: Court fee = £3 (off-peak); £4 (peak). At present there are NO Court fees
No Guest fee
Aldermaston Squash Club, Aldermaston
Court fee = £1.00
Guest fee = £1.00
Most Squash Courts are bookable for 45 minute sessions, hence the lessons are usually 45 minutes in duration. However, if a pupil would like a session for a longer time then this can be arranged.
For example, a 1 hour individual lesson the cost would be £32 (adult) or £29 (junior) plus any additional court fee.
Block Lessons must be used within a 6-month period (starting from the date of the first lesson).
Please give at least 24 hours notice if cancelling a lesson to avoid a full cancellation fee.
