Boston Squash and Racketball Club are hoping to introduce more youngsters to the sport - after taking stock of new equipment.

The Rosebery Avenue club has bought £350 worth of training rackets, balls and safety goggles - a must for juniors taking part in the sport - to help coach youngsters aged from under 11s all the way up to 25.

They have also taken delivery of a mobile training wall, a mesh net which repliates a squash court, which can be taken into schools.

“This equipment is helping us reach so many more people,” said club steward and coach Peter Andrews, who is currently offering taster sessions to a number of schools in the area and wants to hear from even more centres.

The money was donated to the club by Lincolnshire County Council’s Coun Alison Austin, from the Big Society fund.

The club also runs Saturday morning and school holiday sessions for juniors, as well as offering further opportunities for those aged up to 25 to be given introductions to the sport.
