We are a relatively small club with a post-covid membership of 60 players of all standards, from complete beginners through to county interclub standard; whatever your level, we have players of a similar ability within our leagues. We are hoping to run two teams in the Berkshire interclub leagues when they resume in the autumn, with team players usually coming from the top three or four leagues.
Although we used to use the courts at The Meadway Sports Centre and Rivermead Leisure Centre, these are not currently available – for advice on where courts are currently available please get in touch on the email address below. Court bookings should be made directly with the relevant venues.
We are affiliated to England Squash, and your membership of England Squash is taken from your club membership fee. This includes a range of benefits including insurance whilst playing.
The internal club leagues are organised into approximately 8-10 leagues with ~5 players in each. Each league session lasts for a month. You are expected to play each of the other people in your league during the period. The resulting scores are entered onto the website. At the end of the month the top 2 players get promoted and the bottom 2 are relegated, subject to new members joining and existing players leaving. Leagues, phone numbers, etc are sent via email, with the leagues available on the website where you can also obtain contact details once logged in. New this year, we have the leagues linked to ‘squash levels’ so you can see how your ranking changes! League games are played as best of 5, point per rally, first to 15 points (2 clear if tied at 14-14). When entering your league scores, you have the option to enter the game scores as well as the result, which will enable better confidence in the rankings.
We try to run at least one internal club competition a year with a couple of social events.
The membership cost is £40 per annum, with renewals in July each year. Payment can be made by bank transfer or by cheque. If you wish to join please contact us with a rough idea of your playing standard, or if possible I’ll try to put you in touch with somebody to have a friendly with to gauge where you would fit in the leagues.
