Squash at Auckland Grammar School is incredibly popular, with three competitive teams playing in external competition and a full internal competition for all other players. We are very lucky to have two world class squash courts on campus that our teams can train and play on.
Our Premier 1 team has an incredibly proud history. They are the reigning Auckland Champions and have won 7 national titles over the years, the second most of any NZ school.
Squash as a sport is incredibly good at developing many aspects of fitness, and professional squash players are regarded as some of the fittest athletes on the planet. This video clip shows how Formula 1 drivers use squash as a form of fitness!
