A wide variety of different classes and clinics are available at McArthur Squash Center. The majority of them are taught by Boar's Head Sports Club Squash Pro, Dean Russell.
The social center piece of our squash program is the Thursday evening round robin administered by assistant coach Howard Day. It takes place every week from 5.45pm to 7.15pm and all levels of player are welcome. The 9 singles courts and 2 doubles courts are used by Howard who uses his local squash knowledge to mix and match players together so everyone enjoys the evening. You can show up for the entire 90 minutes, or join in at any time. There is never a fee to our members for round robin, and furthermore it's free to guests of members on the first and third Thursday of every month.
Most Friday evenings, from 5.15pm to 6.15pm, Dean Russell is the lead coach on our 3.5 to 5.0 playing level, "Stroke of the Week" clinic. If this is your approximate standard and you are interested in sixty minutes of cost effective practice and group instruction then this is the perfect class for you. This class is a weekly drop-in, but it's usually worth contacting Dean the day before to make certain it's taking place - as when we have weekend tournaments at MSC then these classes have to be cancelled.
We also offer a Tuesday early morning "Dawn Patrol" Class. It's open to players of all levels, though typically attracts players around the 2.5 to 3.0 level. The class is a drop-in and is held from 7.00am to 8.00am.
Coach Russell also teaches a Ladies Morning class twice weekly, on a Tuesday and Thursday, from 9.30am to 10.30am.
Lastly, if you and your squash playing buddies want to set up your own private clinic with Director of Squash Mark Allen or any of the assistant coaches then just let us know and it can be arranged - all you need is a group of at least 4 players close to the same playing level!
Clinics are available to members of BHSC, Guests of Boar's Head Inn, and UVa IM-REC members. For the latest update on any classes and clinics being offered at McArthur Squash Center visit the Boar's Head Sports Club website.
