This week Year 1 were lucky enough to have a visit from a professional squash coach and teach them the fundamentals of playing the sport! We learnt how to bounce and catch a squash ball, and that squash is a game all about bouncing a ball off a wall.
We practised holding and using a squash racquet and that we need to keep our eye on the ball to make it easier to hit once it has bounced. At the end of the session, we were even challenged by the coach to play him in a squash match. Lots of us were able to keep up a good rally! We have been inspired to try and play squash more in our playtimes and PE lessons!
