Learning Squash: the Fundamentals (Zesiger Center, 3rd floor squash courts)
What can you really expect of a game that shares its name with a salad ingredient? One of the best possible workouts in the least time, exercise you can do year-round, a social outlet and a terrific de-stressor. By the end of our hands-on program of games, handouts, and exercises, you will be technical, strategic, and fit. Squash is a game that people get addicted to and end up playing their entire lives. See you on the courts! Participants must provide their own racquet.

Intermediate Squash (Zesiger Center, 3rd floor squash courts)
Participants learn with a group of the appropriate skill level. Intermediate and advanced players study strategy, fitness and participate in advanced drilling. Match play will be incorporated at the end of each 1 hour session. Participants must supply their own racquet.
