SOME 120 pupils from Bridgetown Primary School enjoyed a free squash experience at Stratford Squash Club – and now the call has been made for more schools to help grow the project.
The club’s senior squash coach Dave Petty said: “Thanks must go to Bridgetown School who committed to taking part in this pilot scheme and to staff and helpers who walked each class of years five and six to the squash club for the one-hour session.
“Without their commitment, it would have never have got off the ground. All the pupils have loved the experience and some have already used their free voucher issued for our Saturday morning junior coaching.
“The plan now is to offer all schools in Stratford the same opportunity. We appreciate it is not possible for some schools to walk their pupils down to the club, so we will include free transport to and from the school.
“The success of this project will depend on other schools making a commitment to give their pupils a chance to have a squash experience.”
Any school wishing to take part in 2018 can contact Dave Petty on 07971 162479 or email [email protected] for further details.
