We have a friendly and sociable squash & racketball section (comprising of approximately 350 members) offering excellent facilities for players of all standards from juniors and beginners up to national level and full professional players. We offer year-round social and team squash & racketball, a competitive box league, regular tournaments for all levels, junior coaching courses and two qualified squash & racketball coaches who offer group coaching as well as one-to-one lessons.

The Club also regularly hosts England Squash & Racketball sanctioned events, regional squads, County matches and was recently home to the Junior East Regional Championships and the East Region Racketball Open.

Facilities

We have six courts - two of which are glass backed with seating for approximately 40 people. The remaining four courts have a viewing gallery.

Box Leagues

Many members participate in the Club squash & racketball leagues which offer all players (from novice to first team) the chance to play competitively against men, women or juniors of a similar standard. The leagues operate throughout the year. For any enquiries or to join the squash or Racketball boxes please contact Robert Hueting on 07736 073333 or email robert@hueting.co.uk.

 Club Night

On the first and third Friday of each month there is a squash & racketball Club night from 6.45pm to 9.30pm. Members of all abilities are welcome to come along and play and have a drink in the bar afterwards. This is a great opportunity to meet other squash & racketball players and play people of different standards.
