HARPENDEN Squash Club have received a lottery grant to help with their efforts to introduce the sport to youngsters in the local area. The club were awarded £4,960 and have bought a mobile Squash Wall which can be erected to enable children to take part in a variety of fun exercises based around the sport. England Squash Development is promoting Mini Squash across the country and targeting children aged five-to-11. Harpenden Club Chairman Norman Smith said: "We have run pilot mini squash schemes with two local primary schools and we are delighted that we can now increase the number of programmes we will be running in 2006." Mini squash does not require a court and can be played anywhere with an area of open space. For details about Harpenden Squash club visit www.harpendensquash.org.uk
