Fives Taster Session
New

Tue 28 Jun 2022

Description

Eton Fives is a hand-ball game, played in a three-sided court. It is only played as "doubles" (i.e. by two teams of two players).

Players wear padded leather gloves, since the ball (which is slightly large than a golf-ball and made of rubber and cork) is quite hard. Eton Fives can also be referred to as a game of hazards! Rugby Fives, first played at Rugby School, is essentially squash with your hands, but far quicker. Different from Eton Fives, it sees all obstacles removed, a back wall added and a lower line to hit the ball above. The ball is almost like a mini baseball and therefore thick padded gloves are essential for this game.

This session, run by the Sports Service Community Sports Coach will give you the opportunity to try your hand at the two versions of the sport. Changing facilities are available on site and participants are asked to wear trainers. The Sports Service will provide gloves.
