Our club has a thriving junior section comprising of absolute beginners aged 3 years upwards to full international players who represent their country at the highest level.

Various group or individual coaching sessions are available which provide a structured development programme for any aspiring junior in a safe, family friendly environment. Pontefract enjoys an unparalleled reputation for consistently producing top class players from its junior ranks. We hold a number of junior tournaments during the year which include at least one bronze event (now Challenger) and one of the best attended Gold events on the England Squash calendar.



We are holding several camps for advanced and development players during the year in school holidays which will be delivered by James Willstrop – contact the club for details. For information relating to England Squash sanctioned junior events click on the logo



Beginner sessions are available on Saturdays 9am-10am and Sundays 10.30 – 12.30pm with the option to progress to the ‘Willstrop Squash’ development programme which are held weekday evenings and is suitable for any junior who shows potential and has the commitment to improve their play.


We are once again very pleased to have hosted the first Junior Gold tournament of the new season, and exceptionally grateful to Dunlop and AppsAnywhere for their support with sponsorship. This prestigious event took place over the weekend of 8th to 10th December at the same two venues – Pontefract and Chapel Allerton clubs.
Mixed under 9’s plus boys and girls under 11, 13, 15, 17 and 19’s all had generous cash prizes for finalists provided by our sponsors AppsAnywhere. For tournament details or to view the results, visit the competitions page on the England Squash website or click the button below
