What is squash?

Squash is a conditionally intensive sport and it has some relation to tennis; it is a racket game played by two people. Unlike tennis, squash players do not face each other but side by side and can use the walls. Therefore, there is no net and the (soft) ball is always played against the opposite wall.

Prizes and booking

At BRESS, we have 6 squash courts available for hire for both members and non-members. Check our squash rates here.
You can rent a squash court online via bress.baanreserveren.nl (registering for the reservation system is free of charge). Please read the booking conditions carefully in advance.

Important: Black soles or soles with black areas are prohibited on our squash courts. Squash may only be played on indoor sports shoes.

Tessa Ter Sluis

“As a professional squash player, I have enjoyed teaching squash at BRESS for almost 10 years now. I work with squash players on specific areas for improvement or teach beginning squash players the basics of the game. I also help the more competitive players who play in tournaments, leagues or the BRESS squash ladder with training exercises focusing on technical, tactical or physical aspects of the game. Do you want to start playing squash or work on something specific? Get in touch and let’s train!”

“With almost 20 years of experience, I still share my passion for squash every day to young, old, beginning and experienced squash players. For beginning players, the basic rules and techniques are discussed so that you can quickly play a fun match against a friend or in the BRESS ladder competition. If you are more experienced, we will discuss the tactical side of the game with various exercises to simulate a match situation. In short, there are squash lessons for every level and every ambition at BRESS.”

“To improve on the things we love to do, that is true satisfaction. If squash is the thing you love to do, I’d like to help you out with just that! Every week, I aim to develop myself between those three walls and the glass. Acting as a trainer, I get to bring that mentality and my passion for the sport with me every session. I tend to focus on beginners and students, but I’d like to see if I can help anyone however I can. Would you like to grow with me by your side on the courts? Then don’t hesitate to send me an email or strike up a conversation in the sports center!“

“Technique, tactics & physical and mental fitness are all involved in this fantastic sport. For the past 15 years, I have been playing and training a lot so that I could eventually play tournaments and leagues. With competitions, I visit many cities across the country where you too could go when you start playing competition. For 5 years, I have enjoyed teaching children, students and adults. I can often be found at BRESS, so if you see me sometime and you have a question about squash or would like to attend a training session, feel free to talk to me and I will be happy to help you! See you on the squash court!”

Squash players of all levels are welcome and players are rotated among themselves, allowing you to meet many different players and thus many different playing styles.
