Squash is an intensive sport in which physical endurance is of great importance. It is related to tennis; it is a racket sport that is played by two persons. In contrary to tennis, squash players do not stand opposite, but next to each other and you can make use of the walls. There is no net in between the players and the (soft) ball is hit to the wall that is opposite of the players. Psst! Did you know that Tessa Ter Sluis, Dutch Champion ladies squash 2017, trains with us?

Meet our squash trainers
Tessa Ter Sluis
As a professional squash player I have enjoyed teaching squash at BRESS for almost 10 years. I train with squash players on specific questions they have or teach beginners the basics of the game. I also help more competitive players who play in tournaments, competitions or the BRESS squash ladder with training exercises that are focus on technical, tactical or physical aspects of the game. Do you want to start with squash or do you want to work om something specific? Get in touch and we’ll look further together!
Marjolein van Oostrum
With almost 20 years of experience I still share my passion for squash with young, old, beginners and experienced squash players. As a beginner we are going to discuss the basic rules and techniques so that you can quickly play a match against a friend or at the BRESS ladder competition. If you are more experienced, we will talk about the tactical side of the game through various exercises that simulate a match situation. There are quash lessons at BRESS for every level and every ambition.
Technique, tactics, physical and mental are all involved by squash! Over the past 15 years I have played and trained a lot. With this experience I eventually play tournaments and competitions. With the competition I come to many cities all over the country. This is where you also could go when you start playing in the competition. For 5 years I have enjoyed teaching children, students and adults. You can see me often at BRESS, so if you see me once and you have a question about squash or would like to follow a training. Don’t hasitate to contact me! I’ll be happy to help you. See you at the squash court.
Throughout the year, several evening- and day tournaments take place in which everyone can participate on every level (beginners, semi-advanced and advanced). Keep an eye on our activities page for the next tournament.
Would you like to take a squash lesson? You can! Every Tuesday from 4 PM until 5 PM and every Thursday from 3 PM until 4 PM a squash lesson will be given. You can register via the BRESS app (or click here) per lesson there will be 6 places available, it’s free and the material will be arranged. (BRESS- members only)
Our club night takes place every Friday night (except holidays) starting 19:00 on court 2 to 5 and it is for every squash player who would like to get to know fellow squashers or just play a game. Squash players of every level are welcome and they rotate between themselves. This way you get in touch with different players and playing techniques. Our club night is all about squash and having fun together.
