Description

We’re excited to offer Big Blue Squash camp starting in July. This camp is for passionate young squash players or experienced Silver and up players who want to work on their skills and techniques on Pingry’s state-of-the-art squash facility in the Miller A. Bugliari ’52 Athletics Center.

The camp will focus on the following:

  1. Fitness – Kids will work on speed, endurance, interval workouts, footwork, etc.
  2. Technique – Kids will improve on ball control, swing, and racquet speed.
  3. Kids will learn reading of the game, tactics and strategies which will improve their defense and attack during match play (Tournament players).

For our campers’ safety, we will take all necessary COVID-19 prevention measures as outlined by the CDC and local NJ officials,  including daily court cleaning/disinfecting and using a new ball every day.

Private lessons are also available under the same guidelines.
