Squash & Racketball Coaching

At hallamshire we run both Squash and Racketball coaching courses for Juniors of all ages ranging from 4 year olds up to 18 year olds. There are various sessions run during the week and at weekends to suit all abilities, for those who are beginners or for those who wish to develop their racket skills.

With our team of qualified and experienced coaches all our sessions are run professionally. One of our main aims is to ensure Juniors have fun in a friendly and competitive environment! We run Junior tournaments, junior ladders and Junior match play sessions which always prove to generate huge participation and really do build the children's confidence and enjoyment of the sport!


John Mullins is our head Squash and Racketball professional, qualified to the highest level: England Elite Coach. John is available for individual and group coaching during the day or evening.

Qualified to England Squash Level 3, Alex Cutts is also available for individual coaching throughout the week. Alex competed in national tournaments as a junior and has continued his competing success representing the Hallamshrie in Yorkshire League Premier Division and the National Club Championships.

There are many other Assistant Squash Coaches available at the club who are all qualified to England Squash Level 1 or 2. To contact any of the above please contact reception on 0114 266 2153.
