Uckfield Leisure Centre is now home to the Uckfield Junior Squash team. The team played their first-ever competitive squash match in the Sussex JRA Junior Leagues on November 2, beating a very experienced Crawley team.
Coach Stephen Holliday runs four training sessions a week for beginners, improvers and the training squad on Mondays and Thursdays, providing a structure that will allow progression through the groups. The squad team will also be playing its home matches at the Freedom Leisure site operated on behalf of Wealden District Council.
The Uckfield Junior Squash squad already has 30 members ranging from seven-16. With more training and members, they are sure to progress through the ranks - four members already attend county coaching squads.
Centre manager Stuart Crawford said: “I am really pleased to host the training and competitive games and it’s great to see both boys and girls playing squash.”
