The internal league system caters for all levels of ability and covers both Squash and Racketball and is open to all men and women members. Everyone is expected to make a contribution by contacting opponents, and for information, mainly of new members, it is customary to offer to pay your share of the cost of the court.
Playing in the leagues allows you to quickly establish regular playing partners of a similar standard, as well as new players to challenge you as you (hopefully) improve. The winter league is complemented by a smaller summer league for those members wanting year round competitive squash.
If you wish to be either included or deleted from the leagues, please contact squash : Sam Yallop 07874 201055 racketball : Dougie Rowland 07912 043160
We have 8 men’s teams and 1 ladies’ team in the Derbyshire County Leagues for Squash and 1 Mixed Racketball teams. Why not come along on a Monday [alternate], Tuesday or Thursday evening to support them. The court bookings for the matches on Thursday nights will mean that court 3 is available to members until 7.40 p.m. and if members are prepared to be a little flexible, courts often become free at around 9.20 p.m on Mondays and Thursdays.
