I feel really excited because this is my very first time playing squash, it’s easy and fun. I can play with my friends and get my homework done!
What our students say
I had never been to a place like this before, it’s so big. The different tennis courts and cricket field really stand out and we are in the same road as where they play tennis on TV!
I loved it today, it was my first time ever playing squash. Everyone said I looked really tired but I just kept going!
Squash definitely helps me to improve my football, you need to be fast! The Wimbledon club is fantastic – lots of open space, different to where I live and doing maths here is better than at school!
