Squash

There are two sessions of SQUASH a year at Tauranga Girls College.

Students choose to do session one initially (Terms 1 and 2) and if they wish to continue for session two (Term 3) then they re-register.

Session 1 runs for 13 weeks, beginning on Wednesday 25th March (Term 1, Week 9), and carrying through until the end of Term 2. The reason we begin in Term 1, for 3 weeks is so that our players have sufficient court and play time before the BOP secondary schools competitions begins early in Term 2.

Session 2 runs for 10 weeks beginning on Wednesday 22nd July and carrying through until the end of Term 3. Students do not need to register for Session 2 until the end of Session 1.

Girls from Beginners to Graded players train every Wednesday morning from 6.45am to 8am at the Dame Susan Devoy Squash and Fitness Centre on the Corner of Devonport Road and 13th Ave (near Boys College). Students need to arrive to the Squash courts on their own in order to take advantage of the coaching.

Sessions will finish no later than 8am, so that there is plenty of time for the girls to walk back to school for 9am lessons. Ifgirls wish there is a School Bay Hopper bus 808 that stops outside Tauranga Boys’ College which then travels along Cameron Road and stops outside Tauranga Girls’ College.

Cost for the 13 weeks of coaching and the hireage of the Squash Club facilities will be $130 per student. Rackets are also available for beginners.
Coaching commences Wednesday 25th March (Term 1, Week 9) for Beginners and Graded Players.

Our coaches this year will be; Head coach; Lauran Clarke (A2 graded player and NZ 2019 squash coach of the year), Taylor Clarke (B1 grade), Teagan Boggle (B1 grade), Glen Templeton (A1 grade), Jo Smyth (A2 grade) and myself (B1 Grade).

This year the top six students will be invited to represent Tauranga Girls’ College in the NZ Secondary Schools Squash Tournament to be held at the Devoy Squash Club in August.

There will also be an opportunity for beginning players to represent Tauranga Girls’ College at the Bay of Plenty Individual and Teams tournaments. All girls attending the training will be eligible for these two competitions. All tournaments have graded and non-graded (beginners) divisions.
