    IAPS Squash
    Squash is one of the fastest growing sports in England


We are delighted to be hosting this event at Nottingham University for the first time. This event has moved to the summer term due to the availability of the courts at the David Ross Sports village. They have 7 courts available including a 360 degree glass back court surrounded with spectator seating. We will endeavour to create the draws to ensure that children are only required at the competition for 2 days and not 3.
