Southgate has a long reputation of supporting and encouraging junior squash. As a result over the years has seen a wealth of players who have grown up at the club. Many have played and represented their club and county at junior level and have gone on to do the same at a senior level.
With a wealth of strong junior players at the club we find it inspires the younger generation to embrace and play squash, while having lots of fun and meeting and making new friends.
There are a number of junior squash coaching sessions available to players of all levels and ages, with coaching available from some of the best coaches in the county. These sessions run during term times and specific programs during the school holidays.
Juniors are encouraged to become members of Southgate Squash Club at a small annual fee, with access to free walk on courts, and a reduced court fee if booked in advance. This is to encourage juniors to play as often as they can without the worry of cost every time they want to play.
Southgate is a strong supporter of the Middlesex Junior County Squash program and has been the host of the Middlesex Junior County Closed tournament for a number of years as well as a number of junior county training sessions throughout the year.
Our juniors are encouraged to participate in the annual club tournaments and there are also regular tournaments for them to take part in throughout the year.
