Racquet sports are a great way to get a full body workout as you need to use your entire body and mind to play. You need to serve, return and run around the court, as well as consider your strategy to beat the opposing player, working you both physically and mentally. Badminton and squash all strengthen your muscles and joints as well as improve your stamina. Plus you will never lack someone to play here at Bluecoat Sports as we have a number of opportunities for you to meet new friends and play with other members and guests.
At Bluecoat Sports, we have 6 squash courts, 10 badminton courts and 15 tennis courts available for racquet sports classes, courses and for hire in Horsham West Sussex. We believe racquet sports are a sociable sport and welcome you to join one of the classes on offer. Whether you’re new to the sport or play in leagues, our classes offer the opportunity for all members to learn more about the sports, have fun and meet like-minded members. Juniors can also benefit from our kid’s classes including Mini Squash, Fundamental Squash, Improvers Squash and Advanced Junior Squash.
Our Adult Squash Club is a 2 hour drop-in session in our air-conditioned squash courts, coached by club coach Kit Pearman and is open to all abilities. Come and improve your squash skills with like-minded men and women and meet fellow members in a fun and social environment, although scoring is taken seriously! These sessions give you an opportunity to learn new skills, play regularly or you can dip in and out of sessions if you can’t attend each week. No need to bring your own equipment, we supply squash racquets and balls.
Adult Squash Classes run on Thursdays from 19:30-21:30 and Saturdays from 09:00-11:00.
Badminton is a fantastic sport all year round, requiring aerobic stamina, agility, strength, speed and precision. Our social badminton sessions are suitable for all abilities as you will play alongside players of mixed abilities and is suitable for anyone over the age of 14. The social badminton sessions are a great deal of fun; we often find members are surprised how quickly their fitness levels improve as they don’t realise just how much exercise they are doing! This friendly non-competitive class includes matches and rallies, equipment is provided.
