  • Playing Squash

    Does anyone knows where can I take lessons or rather a short course on it??

    I remembered SSC used to conduct lessons for beginners for the "Learn to Play" scheme but that is now defunct already......

    Bumping up an old thread!

    I am interested in taking up squash, any regular players here?

    Do I need to find a coach, or I can just play and learn by myself?

              I go every sunday 3pm. Supposed to be 1.5h long only but the coach stretches it till 6pm I personally think 6 people is just nice. Coz certain stuff requires individual practice ***. Racquet u gotta get one yourself but I guess might as well if u are going to cont playing after the course. Get a cheap one la

                Are there a mixture of guys and girls?
                I'm quite a slow learner, dunnoe if I will slow them down.

                By the way, where did you get your squash racquet?
                What is the average price range?

                  well i have learnt squash under my sch's squash club.

                  Personally i think that if u have no intention of competing in any match, u dun have to go for formal teaching. U can always learn from others who are squash players.

                    I got my racquet set with 2 balls and goggles from Kallang Squash Centre at $80. i'm not sure if they are still selling at this price. Roughly one cost $80-120

                        Anyone still playing squash?

                        I'm looking for someone to teach me as I'm a total beginner. Checked some of the 1-to-1 coaching rates, it's like $60 per hour.. too ex for me..

                        Anyone know of any better rates or places where they have group lessons? I know Safra has one but it seems like no class is starting soon.

                          Oh ahahah i played squash for my sch last time ^^

                          Its really a fun sport , basically the most important is your ball sense , if you can play badminton averagely , you probably can pick up squash pretty fast too !!

                          Sad to say i broke all my 3 rackets =.=

                            The last time i played badminton was in Sec school.. I prefer squash though. hehe..

                              Yeap stopped playing , its hard to squeeze in the time to even head down to a court to play !! Haha breaking rackets is easy , a simple knock on the wall would cause your racket to crumble into two .

                              If you have a friend living in a condominium , its better to ask if there is a squash court available , normally usage is low which would result in a squash court which is not as run down as those at the various safra clubs .

                              And if you are just starting out playing squash , best is not to buy any rackets above the weight of 150 , and definitely not those which feel like you are holding a heavy metal bar in your hands , your wrists will probably get damaged over time without the correct hand movements .

                              And for the balls , go for a blue or red dot ball . Both of these kind of balls have a much bigger bounce compared to the white or yellow dot . It helps because you would not want to see the ball dying and rolling on the floor without having the chance to hit it right
