Announcement – Solo Squash Training Authorised – 30 July 20
On court solo squash training is now authorised subject to the squash facility being open and conforming to NGB and Army HQ COVID prevention guidelines. Squash players are to maintain 2m social distancing at all times while training, and only one person at a time is allowed to train on court. This position will be reviewed regularly, balancing risk versus requirement.
UPDATED BACK TO SQUASH GUIDANCE FROM ENGLAND SQUASH
Following the release of our Back to Squash guidance on 14 July, we’ve released an updated set of guidance and resources based on your feedback. The key updates and additions, which you can also find in Version 2 of the Back to Squash guidance PDF include:
1) NEW: Social distancing games and practices (video and poster)
Our new downloadable video and venue poster highlight which games and practices more advanced players from different households can play.
2) NEW: Court cleaning recommendations (PDF)
We provide practical advice and support measures to help clubs/venues keep their members and workforce as safe as possible.
3) NEW: Don’t Touch the Walls (poster)
Our new downloadable poster discourages players from touching the walls, reducing the risk of spreading the virus. For maximum effect, we advise placing the poster on the front of all court doors.
4) NEW: FAQs
We answer commonly asked questions from clubs, venues and coaches including:
- How do we monitor and oversee our club/venue?
- Can a coach and two players be on court together?
- How can we safely manage five players from different households?

Army Squash Weekly Circuits
Following a successful open circuit session held by Head Coach, Paul Carter, we will be running a squash specific circuit session via Zoom every Wednesday at 1600hrs until we can get back on court.
The session is open to all Army and Corps players. The only kit required is a small open space (4m x 4m), an exercise mat, squash racket, skipping rope (optional) and bottle of water.
The meeting ID and password details will be the same every week, so really straightforward.

Following the Government’s clear guidance that leisure centres and gyms should be closed with immediate effect, squash clubs and facilities have responded accordingly and are closed until further notice. Army Squash activities are being planned for later this year but will not resume until the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
