Gym users Try It at Rotherham Leisure Complex
As part of the Big Hit Tour launched in Sheffield 2 Try It sessions were held at the Rotherham Leisure Complex on the mornings of 28th & 29th January. Jason Fearn an ESR qualified coach delivered the sessions.
Two established lunch time squash players came along, and they were able to showcase the game to a number of Gym users at the centre. They were invited to come down to the courts & try out something new to add to their fitness regime. The group of 8 brand new players, 2 women and 6 men, who had never played squash or racketball before, some of whom had never even seen a squash court before, were impressed with the games.
All the new players had a go at squash using the blue Max ball, as well as trying racketball. They even tried out doubles racketball, which they enjoyed immensely.
All had a great time and said that they would be playing again. All have expressed an interest in progressing to the Play It sessions for (5 for £5 offer). This offer will commence in February. Meanwhile 3 of the players have already decided to set up their own little mini league!
The overwhelming feeling expressed by a couple of the regular gym users was that they had a really good work out, without even noticing they were working so hard!
