Proudest Sporting Moment: I won a county level tournament playing with a frying pan because I forgot my racquet!
Squash was famously invented right here at Trinity College in the year 1653, when a then-undergraduate Isaac Newton controversially built a wall in the middle of a tennis court – since then the game has blossomed into one of the world’s all time most popular sports.
One of the key advantages to playing squash here at college is that so few people know what it is that if you can hit the ball you’ll almost automatically be a full team member. We’ve got two teams (hopefully) playing in the leagues against other colleges, so if you’ve played a bit before and fancy getting involved in some competitive play then the opportunity is there for you.
Club night runs on a Monday from 8-10pm – anybody’s welcome to come down and I’ll be happy to sort you out with a game or just to offer general advice. There’ll be coaching sessions with a properly qualified coach once a week as well, again any standard is welcome so if you want to come along, then go for it!
All in all squash is a very welcoming and low-commitment sport – even if you’ve never heard of it but just fancy burning some calories, letting your anger out, or making a few new mates, come and give it a try.
