Squash

Squash is played in the first three terms of the year at Crusaders Club Courts on Tuesdays. Lifts to the courts are arranged with willing parents and the learners can be collected by their parents at Crusaders Club from 16:30 – 16:45. The learners are managed by one of the staff and coached by two qualified and experienced KZN Squash Association Coaches employed by the school.

The learners are divided into two groups:

(1) The Academy Group who are the beginners and they are coached the basics such as racquet grip, footwork and basic stroke techniques;

(2) The Team Group who are coached more advanced aspects of strategy in match play.

Danville competes in the local schools’ league which runs in Term 2. Several girls start playing squash in Grade 8 and when they leave five years later, they compete in the top league.
