The Squash Club is a mixed club with 2 Men's Teams and 1 Women's Team regularly competing in BUCS leagues and tournaments. Some players also have the opportunity to play in local leagues. Teams are selected through trials at the start of the year in September then selected in October - the level of play is competitive. The club is run in partnership with the Hallamshire Squash Club, providing access to high quality coaching and facilities for Hallam students. Weekly training sessions are run at the Hallamshire Tennis & Squash Club on Ecclesall Road on Tuesday mornings, Friday afternoon and Sundays along with Strength and `conditioning sessions at the Collegiate Campus. Matches are typically on a Wednesday afternoon. Regular social sport sessions are also run for less competitive and developing players.
Social Squash is based at the Hallamshire Tennis and Squash Centre on Tuesday nights at 8:40pm. Come and play Squash in a fun and relaxed setting. Each session will encourage the player to learn one new skill and then said player will have the remainder of the session to put this into practice in friendly games. No need to bring anyone with you, as our Student Sport Activator will introduce you to participants and rotate you on and off court. If you don’t know the rules or want to learn how to improve your performance, instruction can be provided upon request from one of the Squash team members who attend regularly. All equipment is provided, but feel free to bring your own if you prefer. Playing abilities varies from complete beginners to club players, where possible you will be grouped with players similar to your own ability and sessions can be adapted to suit a variety of needs.
Sessions are £2.50 or free if you have a SHU-Active or Team Hallam membership. Just turn up on the day, or you can book in advance with our online booking system, or at SHU-Active reception. See our social sport timetable to find a session. For any questions email us.
We've worked with the Hallamshire to put on a special heavily discounted membership offer for Hallam students to pay a term-time only off peak membership in order to be able to book courts to play squash casually with friends. The membership offer is seperate to the Team Hallam club membership, and is mainly aimed at people who just want to play socially during their own time. It runs from1st October to 21st December, stops over Christmas, then starts again from 14th January to 19th April.
Register your interest here (link to online sign-up sheet), via our social media channels (IG or Twitter preferred) or at the Sports Fair on September 22nd at the Students Union to attend trials. Teams will be selected by early October.
