About the Club

At The University of Manchester Squash Club we have around 130 paying members, around 100 of whom are active. For them we have beginner and intermediate coaching sessions run on Monday and Tuesday. The standard of these sessions range from absolute beginner to ex-club/county players looking to get back into the sport. These sessions are taken by two fully England Squash qualified Level 2 coaches who are also students of the university. At the end of the term we host tournaments and fun games which everyone is encouraged to participate in. We occasionally run racquetball sessions, too. Outside this, we run an intra-university league throughout the academic year which members organise in their own time against other club players.

Every Wednesday we have club socials which are attended by around 20-30 people from the club. It’s a great way to meet new people and have a bit of fun. These socials can range from local bars and clubs, to paintballing and loads more! It’s also a great way to meet older students who can impart some valuable knowledge of the city and university from their years of experience.

There are plenty of other opportunities for squash at the university, such as our Sporticipate and Hall Sport programmes which are initiatives designed to increase participation within a sport an are aimed at people who aren’t sure about joining a club but are still interested in playing and want an idea of what it’s like.
