Downs View Squash Academy is the official coaching team at Freedom Leisure, Uckfield, and at Nutley Tennis and Squash Club. We provide weekly lessons for juniors, ladies and men both on a group basis and individually.

With two England Squash qualified coaches we cater for “tots” from age 3 to more senior clients (one even in his seventies), and offer sessions for complete beginners through to county players (of whom we have a number of Sussex County Juniors in our squads). In conjunction with the “This Girl Can” scheme, we also offer a ladies only session on Wednesday evening. Please contact us for further details.

Head Coach – Stephen Holliday
Assistant Coach – Finn Holliday (England Squash Young Coach of the Year 2016)

ALL SQUASH COACHING SESSIONS RESUME NEXT WEEK! Tuesdays 10.00-11.00am - Coffee morning squash - come and have a social hit and enjoy a coffee/biscuits after Wednesdays 3.45-6.30pm - four junior sessions for all ages/abilities followed by our Ladies Only session from 6.45-8.00pm Thursdays 5.05-6.30pm - two junior sessions for intermediates and beginners Having taken over the coaching duties nearly three years ago we have worked hard initially to develop our junior section which now involves 40-45 youngsters a week, culminating in our annual junior tournament in the summer. We have also now established a Nutley Juniors team in the Sussex Squash leagues (currently top of Division 5). Our Ladies Only group goes from strength to strength and was sold out most weeks last term. We have also held two annual Club Championships for Men, Women, Veterans and Mixed Handicap categories. A new development last term was our social "coffee morning squash" session on Tuesday mornings. But...... WHAT MORE COULD WE DO AS A COACHING TEAM TO ENHANCE NUTLEY SQUASH? For example we have had a couple of requests to run a "Club Night" for seniors and older juniors to experience playing some semi-competitive games against new opponents. Would that be of interest? Let us know: email: or 07425167712 Best wishes for 2018 Stephen and Finn

We just wanted to say a “thank you” for all the cards and presents we have received this week 🎁🍫🍺!

We were somewhat overwhelmed with them at times and you have all been far too generous!

We think we managed to thank most people at the time but hope that this message will suffice if not.

It’s been a very good year for squash locally, with more people than ever attending our various sessions, enjoying and improving their games. Do try and get in a game or two over the holiday and don’t forget that we are available for one-to-one sessions. Gift vouchers are available.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all and see you in 2018!
