There is a buzz throughout the Squash Community this week, as Jonathon Power, the first North American and Canadian to achieve # 1 in the World is here! He is taking the time to meet and work with many squash players and is giving his energy and sharing his smile with everyone he meets! Tonight he worked hard on the Glencoe Club Squash court with exhibition matches with Calgary's and Canada's top squash players: Andrew Schnell, Graeme Schnelle and David Letourneau! Well done gentlemen!
New Member Social This is our 2nd
Annual New Squash Member Social.Existing squash members who would like to meet some new squash players
are welcome to join in the squash.Players can arrive between 6:00pm and 6:30pm and meet the squash
professionals and get on court for some fun squash.There is no charge for this event!
Working with children on the squash court is both fun and energizing! We can work with children and youth to both help inspire the younger generation to play squash, and to work on our own technique! When working with a large group of children (any age) a great 'ice breaker' maybe a simple 'Name Game!'
Everyone has a racquet, only 1 ball (squash ball/foam ball)
Stand in a large enough circle that you can move your racquet safely from side to side
Use the racquets to carefully pass the ball around the circle
While passing everyone says their name (favourite food, age, favourite movie etc.) There are a few variations:
Balance the ball on your racquet, then roll it onto the next person's racquet
All step back to expand the circle; bounce the ball on your racquet and then bounce pass it to the next person's racquet
Back up a little further; bounce the ball on your own racquet then say the name of a friend as you bounce pass it in the air across to them
*You will discover this is more about small controlled bounces and encourages teamwork.
