Harleston Squash Club, based in the local two-court community leisure centre, have just been awarded their England Squash Silver Club Charter Award.

In the past 18 months they have undergone an impressive phase of development focusing on growing their junior section.

Level 2 coach, Ben Jackson, has been at the helm of the development and been largely responsible for fostering a great atmosphere and camaraderie between the junior players.

Harleston recently held one of the county's popular Grand Prix events and have been chosen to host the first event of this season, on October 19.

They also had a busy programme of summer coaching run primarily by England Squash's Norfolk Development Coach, Nicky Green which gave the current club players an opportunity to experience a different type of coaching and also introduced a couple of new players to the club.

Another significant development has been the introduction of racketball to the club with the aim of offering a different type of activity to attract a new genre of player and provide competitive opportunities for beginners, older players or those coming back from injuries.

Jackson's work on the coaching side has been ably supported by a very pro-active committee that are keen to see Harleston grow into one of the most proactive clubs in the county.

Numerous well-organised squash and social activities are planned for the coming season and the new Club Charter Award will hopefully serve to support the growth of the club by attracting new members.
