Edgbaston Priory Club Ė 2009 & 2010
January 2010 - a look at one of England's top clubs,
Edgbaston Priory in Birmingham ...


Edgbaston Priory Club is a very different place today than it was in the 1880ís when it moved to its current location.

Set in 12 acres of beautiful grounds the private members club now boasts 10 squash courts, 29 tennis courts, heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools, outside spa, Technogym equipped fitness facilities, treatment rooms and a licensed bar and restaurant.

2009 was a very successful year for Edgbaston Priory in Squash and Racketball.



The junior programme has doubled in numbers, with around 10 playing at County, Regional or National level including Anthony Graham (current PSA player and U19 British & European Champion), Julianne Courtice (U17 British Champion) and Alicia Mead (U15 National Squad player).

The under 15s won the Warwickshire League in 2009 and we now have a team in the Junior Mixed National Clubs competition, and hoping to do well in this in 2010.



Senior teams have also done well in 2009 with the club winning the Menís and Womenís Division One Warwickshire League. Both teams automatically qualified for the National Cup, with our womenís team being crowned Champions, and menís runners up.

In May 2009, our Ladies National Club Team won the English National Clubs, and then went on to represent England in the European Club Championships.



Edgbaston Priory holds several big events every year including the National Racketball Championships, EPC Junior Open event, EPC Adult Graded Open event and many England Squash and Racketball sanctioned events. We are also co-hosting the 2012 World Masters Event.

2010 will be even more successful!

This will be helped largely due to the number of professional players now based at Edgbaston Priory. Steadily we have been attracting players to Priory, and offering a training facility and support for players that are based here full time.

Edgbaston Priory is very excited about the future of Squash and Racketball at the club. We have a strategic plan in place, exciting development plans and are looking at setting up a player pathway to lead into a Performance Programme for Junior and Senior players.

When I left school at the age of 18 I started training at Edgbaston Priory Club. At this stage I was ranked outside the top 10 in the country for my age group.

Edgbaston offered me a great opportunity, with fantastic courts and a great gym. I was surrounded with great players to train with and a top league to play in each week.

There was a very professional atmosphere at Edgbaston which helped me get into a consistent training routine. I would recommend anyone to be based at Priory and always enjoy going there to train.

For more information on the programme, please donít hesitate to contact Mike Edwards, Head Coach. This is open to members and non members, and we would be very keen to hear from you.

Priory has excellent facilities and talented coaching staff, itís great that we can utilise this on a day to day basis.

The club has a lot to offer for full time players and now has a strong base of players training there.

Iím looking forward to 2010 and working alongside Priory to progress up the WISPA rankings.
 

After being out injured for a year, Edgbaston Priory offers the perfect environment for me to rehabilitate and continue my professional career in 2010.

Edgbaston is a great club, I am very happy to be based here after studying in Birmingham. The facilities, especially the hot tub, are some of the best in the Country. I am looking forward to working hard on my game here over the coming season.

I have really enjoyed training in a consistent group of professionals. We all get on well and everyone is prepared to put the work in. I hope this group based at Priory will continue and grow over the next few years.

Having played at Priory for over 10 years it is great to now have a group of professionals to train with day in day out. The facilities, along with services such as Strength and Conditioning and Physio give us a good base. I hope this goes from strength to strength over the next few years.

Training at the Priory in 2010 will provide a great opportunity to train with other professionals in a good training environment. The facilities here are great, and I am looking forward to the rest of the season.
