Squash Leagues

The club runs a mixed squash league for adult members. More details can be found here.

Club Nights

The club runs a club night every Friday evening, running from 4pm through to 7.20pm. The evening is broken down into two sessions, 4-6pm will be for singles with all standards welcome: 6-7.20pm will be for doubles for which we would recommend that participants have some prior doubles experience.

Both sessions provide an excellent social way for new and established members to get to know one another in a relaxed environment both on & off the court. Also during the squash season there will be team matches running from 7.20pm onwards, so you can also watch some entertaining games as well.

Team Squash

The club currently has three men’s teams (in Premier, Div 3 West and Div 4 West). The match season runs from Sept to March. If you are interested in playing for one of the teams please contact the club office and we will put you in touch with the team captain.
