St Paul’s Collegiate School’s squash programme has more than 60 students participating each term.
The programme started in 2011 and is now the biggest school squash programme in New Zealand. The focus of the programme is for the students to learn to be an all-around squash player in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere.
Technical skills and fitness work are a big part of the programme. Students are also taught marking, referring and the skills to assist in the administration of a Squash Club.
Students train twice per week on St Paul’s two glass-back courts. There are many opportunities throughout the year for students to compete in local club events, as well as some inter school competitions.
The cost is $120 per term.
