Squash is a popular and well supported sport ranging from juniors to adults and from beginners to an England O. 55 representative. Squash and Racketball are excellent games for your general fitness, giving an energetic workout in a 40 minute session.
There are different grades of ball for different standards of play for squash as the ball must be kept warm by rallying for it to bounce well. Using the appropriate ball will add to your enjoyment of your game. Eye protectors are recommended for squash players as the ball is the size of an eye socket. Juniors must wear eye protectors on court as directed by the England Squash Association.
Racketball is also played on the squash courts. The rules of the game are very similar to those for squash but shorter, large-headed rackets and larger, bouncier balls make it easier for beginners or those of us who are less mobile to play.
There are 5 squash courts all with viewing galleries.
The show court has a glass back wall so you can watch a game from the bar area while relaxing in the company of others and enjoying a drink.
Club mixed squash leagues are run on a monthly basis for those who wish to play competitively against other members and meet others of a similar standard.
