The Garrison

About the Academy

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

The Corporal Budd VC Gymnasium is an amazing six-court complex, and is the home of the hive of activity that the East Region coaches of Off The Wall Squash team roll out 6 days out of 7. At the Off The Wall Squash Academy, 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 install competition, form relationships and provide new goals for you to strive for. There is 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; something we feel could rival anything else in the country.
