We offer squash programs for those 8-18 years old and adult racquetball and squash leagues. Our recreation center also provides court members with access to three multi-use courts. Private and group lessons are also available.
PRIVATE SQUASH LESSONS
The Lake Forest Recreation Department has partnered with John Larson and his Lake Forest Squash Program to offer our community's Squash enthusiasts the opportunity to gain the skills needed to develop their game through private lessons.
These sessions will sharpen your existing skills or build your skill sets from scratch. Lesson plans will be tailored to your goals. Before your first lesson, John will schedule a conversation with you to discuss what you want to achieve in your session or sessions.
