Women’s Squash Week – Meet Clare Slyth

How old were you when you discovered squash and how did you get into it?

I started playing squash at 7 years old at Bill Lawton’s Squash Academy, held at Blue Gum Squash Club. My mum was a squash coach and so at some time or another the whole family played but only my sister Jane and I continued with it.

What do you love most about the sport?

I love hitting a ball. I also like the competition and the social side.

Why do you think more women should give it a go?

It is the best sport for fitness and fun and gives a great workout in a short amount of time.

Thanks for chatting with us Clare!
