We have about 70 members of various standards ranging from beginners through to County, and all ages. Squash and Racketball membership is £135 per annum (£60 for juniors), which is Chester RUFC membership, plus an annual court usage supplement of £120 for all-inclusive access to the courts. So in addition to unlimited squash and racketball, this allows you access to all Rugby Club events and matches (except 1st XV). The membership year runs from 1st August, but we discount this pro-rata when new members join mid-year.
New members are welcome to come along to a few club sessions before committing to membership.
There are 3 courts, including one glassback with spectator seating. The courts have recently been refurbished thanks to a £30,000 grant from Sport England, which has allowed us to install insulation throughout, a new roof covering, new court heaters and LED lights.
The court usage supplement of £120 allows you to play as much as you want, at any time. The courts are available for use all year round and members have their own key. Court lights are activated by a push button timer that turns the lights on for 50 minutes.
We have Squash Club sessions every Tuesday evening (6-8) and Saturday afternoon (4-6). These are drop in sessions where people turn up and play whoever is there, for 3 games, on a rotating basis. In that way people play a range of players and you can play for up to 2 hours. In the summer (and in the winter on the few occasions when there are no league matches) we also do Thursday evenings (6-8). These sessions are included in the court usage supplement.
We run an internal online squash ladder on Sportconnexions which is a great way to get to know players of a similar ability.
We also have annual tournaments and one-day round robin competitions throughout the year.
We have 4 teams that compete in the Northwest Counties Squash League (Divisions 2, 3, 4, and 5) every Thursday evening from late Sept to early April, and also one team in the Welsh League Division 1 that plays at home on alternate Tuesday evenings. We also compete in a less formal Summer League on Thursday evenings from May to July.
Group coaching is available on Saturday morning from 0900 to 1100 for juniors, beginners and improvers (£5 for adults, £3 for juniors).
One to one coaching is available by arrangement with Robbie Blair, Cheshire over 55 men's champion.
Organisers of group activities (such as Pilates, fitness, or yoga), schools, or outside organisations, can hire the courts on an hourly basis for £10 per hour. Please contact us for more information or to make a booking.
