Squash

Squash is a fun, intensive and challenging racket sport. Student Squash club Beat It together with Sportcentrum Olympos provides 10-week courses (10 times 1 hour).   

Levels

  • Beginners: You will learn the basic squash techniques such as forehand, backhand, service, drop and volley, and the proper racket and running techniques for your first match. If you have never or hardly ever played before, the beginners’ level is the best level to start with. 
     
  • Advanced beginners: You will learn to improve the basic forehand, backhand and volley techniques. You will also practice match situations to apply the learnt techniques. If you have occasionally played recreational squash before, this level is the right level for you.   
     
  • Intermediates: Once you have mastered the basic techniques and / or have been playing recreational squash for a longer time, you may want to start at the semi-advanced level. You will learn additional techniques such as lob and boast and you will practice increasingly challenging match situations.[
     
  • Advanced: This level is for experienced squash players who may have played competitively or in a league. You will learn to refine your techniques and influence the pace of the rallies. 


At all levels attention will be paid to technique and tactics as well as to fitness and explosiveness. 

Availability and costs
Squash courses are available in periods 1 to 4 (see below). Check the schedule here. A course lasts 10 weeks: one lesson a week.

Squash ladder competition

 

If you are interested in using your OlymPas for more than recreational squash (free sports) only and wish to play matches at your skill level, you can join the Olympos squash ladder competition. You will be playing a game every two weeks. 

You can ‘connect’ with other players via your mobile device or PC. Just check who is available and add your own profile. 
 

Registration

Registration is FREE if you have a valid OlymPas. Go to www.sportconnexions.com/olympos or download the free app for iPhone and Android (search for ‘squash ladder’).
 

How does it work?

Every two weeks a new match round starts and you will be sent an e-mail invitation to join in. You will play against someone of your own skill level who you did not meet in the last three rounds. The actual match day recommendation is based on the availability of both players. 

 

By the end of the match round, the results will be processed:

  • You will move up the ladder if you beat a player with a higher ranking
  • You will be removed from the ladder if you failed to play twice in a row

 

Check the full match and scoring regulations.

 

Free access with the OlymPas
Participation in the Olympos squash ladder competition is free if you are an OlymPas holder. Want to play even more often? Your OlymPas allows you to enjoy unlimited and free recreational squash on our courts too. Obviously, you also have free access to all of the many other sports programmes available with your OlymPas!

Both seasoned squash players and those who have never played squash before are welcome at US Beat It and are in for a fun and sporty year if they become a Beat It member.

All in all, Beat It offers its members more than enough opportunities to test the skills that they acquire during the year.

 

Social activities
In addition to all things squash-related, US Beat It members are also always in for gezelligheid (nothing is more Dutch than gezelligheid after all). Therefore, the monthly social events that US Beat It organises are valued by the members. These events range from pool nights to game nights and miniature golf. The highlights of the year are the members weekend, hitch-hiking weekend, Sint and Friet and the End-of-the-year BBQ.
