Squash

West Heaton has a vibrant, family-friendly squash section that compliments the rest of the club's sporting facilities and includes disabled access. We offer the opportunity to play squash at all ages and standards over two courts as a year-round sport.

 
Weekly court use

Court usage at West Heaton can vary depending on the time of year. Throughout the week there may be various club activities including coaching sessions, social sessions, matches and tournaments. All of these bookings are reflected in our online booking calendar alongside regular member bookings.

Please remember you must book a court to secure it and that only rackets members can book

Changing rooms and showers are also available. The squash section operates a year round booking system for both courts – more details available on joining.

Squash Guidelines & Etiquette

Footwear

Only non-marking squash shoes may be worn on court. Trainers or tennis shoes are not permitted as they damage the courts.

Court cleaning

The most common cause of injury is slipping on a dusty floor so it is essential that the courts are brushed regularly. Please do so before your game.

Juniors

Junior members may play without a stamp but they must give up the court if adult members want to play.

Junior members must wear eye protection as well as non-marking squash shoes.

Tournaments

When playing in a tournament please act as marker for another match.

 

Teams

Team captains will assess player abilities. Their decisions are final.
 

All team players are expected to mark a match at home and away fixtures.
 

A team player must act as host to his or her opponent at home matches. This normally includes buying two drinks for the opponent and staying for the meal.

Visitors & Guests

Members may bring the same guest to play on only three occasions in any one year; after three visits, it is expected that the visitor will apply to become a Rackets Member. The same rule applies to Social and Country Members.

 
Team Squash

West Heaton has two teams playing in the North West Counties Squash Winter League (NWCSL). We also participate in the NWCSL Summer League for those squash players that don’t put their rackets down in the warmer months of the year (though some of us turn the court heaters off). 

Anyone interested in playing please contact Eddie Tasker  (squash@west-heaton.co.uk).
