What is Hits & Giggles?

The Hits & Giggles Learn to Play Program was initially developed by Squash & Racquetball Victoria in 2012. As of 2017 Hits & Giggles became a nationally delivered program with Squash Australia adopting the concept for use by all states. 

The program exists to provide an introduction for women and girls to the sports of Squash and/or Racquetball in a supportive and judgement-free environment. Each week consists of a one hour coaching session over the course of six weeks providing an opportunity for participants to learn a new sport and meet like-minded women in the process.

An accredited coach will be on-site, providing participants with tailored programs to suit skill level, whilst helping to build confidence and self-esteem of participants. 

Why?

Hits & Giggles aims to provide an entry point for females interested in playing by providing a means to learn the rules and how to play. Hits & Giggles also aims to link women with others who play at a similar standard and with who participants may be able to continue playing with after the program completion. 

Where?

All Squash & Racquetball Victoria affiliated clubs and venues are entitled to offer a Hits & Giggles Program, provided they follow the outlines given by Squash & Racquetball Victoria and have an accredited coach on site to conduct the program.

As an extension of the Hits & Giggles program, there may be opportunities to play some social squash within centres that run a Women's Social Squash Program. For more information, enquire with your club today.
