Our Squash Camp is designed for players of all ability levels. Fessenden has partnered with Squashfit Academy to offer an excellent squash experience. The program, which takes place in our five squash courts, focuses on squash technique, playing strategies, the different shots played on the squash court and more. Although players will be grouped by skill level and age, all participants will work with Squashfit’s experienced coaches in a rotational program with different squash-specific drills and activities to improve skills, stamina and confidence. Competitive and friendly match play is also part of the daily schedule.
