Squash Facilities

Squash Club Night is held on Fridays at 6:20. Courts are booked for 2 hours for any squash member who wants to turn up and play. Come along if you can make it. All abilities invited. It will be a great chance for playing lots of different opponents. Optional BYOB in clubhouse afterwards. See the contacts page. **


Squash Internal Minileagues

The internal squash minileagues run throughout the year. It’s a great way to meet new folk & are suitable for players from beginner to team standard. Divisions usually comprise 5 or 6 players. Matches are played best of 5 games. Recommended scoring is point a rally to 15. Play a minimum of 3 games to avoid being dropped!  We aim to keep our courts at 18 deg C, making the use of the single yellow ball a popular choice.

If you don’t play any games before the end of the round, you will normally be excluded from the following round, unless you email the organiser in time to tell him that you wish to be retained. Please do not record walkovers unless you have arranged a game and your opponent called off very late (i.e. on the day), and you were unable to rearrange the fixture.

NB: If you are under the age of 18 it is recommended that you use an adult’s contact details to arrange games.

“I’m super excited to let you know that I have a six week beginners /  intermediate squash coaching course starting on Monday (see Events & Calendar page for block start dates) throughout the year from 6.00-7.00 which will cost £55.00 in total for this block of lessons. This will be suitable for lower league players  On the course we will cover basic shots, movement & technique as well as playing games and going through shot selection.  The sessions will be good fun and varied and will be a great way to meet other players of a similar ability.
