The Colchester Garrison

The Colchester Garrison, home to the British Army’s 16 Air Assault Brigade, is the venue for the Off The Wall Squash elite squash academy.

The Corporal Budd VC Gymnasium is an amazing six-court complex and is the home for the hive of activity that the OTWS team roll out 6 days out of 7. Our team offers a programme of club style activities designed for a whole spectrum of ages and abilities. We offer group sessions for players of similar abilities, so we can get the very best out of you. Working in groups can be a huge benefit to your own training programme, it can instil competition, form relationships and provide new goals for you to strive for.

The Colchester Garrison has a very strong Junior section and we are currently building an impressive adult division to provide greater access to a thorough series of training sessions and activities programmed and designed for a whole spectrum of ages and abilities.

A number of the country’s top international players train at the Garrison, alongside young Essex players who will be guided and mentored by a team of the UK’s most experienced and respected coaches. OTWS aim to create the leading centre of squash excellence in the South of England.

We offer two types of membership to all squash players at the Academy, which we feel provides great value for money through discounts, member benefits and kit. Details on membership can be found below.

Below you’ll find information on the Academy’s timetable, how to become a member and what benefits you get from being a member of OTWS and also useful downloads for you to keep to hand. We look forward to seeing you at the Academy very soon!
