Internal Squash 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 a popular choice.

As of February 2022 the minileagues comprises of 39 players across 7 divisions

For projected squash minileagues update dates see the Events Calendar page.
