About Squash Club
The Squash club runs many activities during the year. We start by holding trials at the start of week 2 to determine who's on the team and the rankings. We have 2 mens teams and 1 women's team. We have training twice a week for each team under the expert supervision of our coach, Derek Norris, as well as two social squash sessions for non-team players and players who just play for fun! COVID-19-permitting, we compete competitively in local and BUCS leagues throughout the year. Our teams play local league matches at least once a week in order to fit all the matches in during term time. We also hold weekly socials (drinking and non-drinking) during term-time with a wide variety of themes! We also compete in the Roses varsity with Lancaster, which with squash is always very intense and a good laugh!
Men's and Women's 1st team training: Mondays 19:00-21:40 and Thursdays 17:00-19:00
Men's 2nd and Development squad team training: Tuesdays 19:00-21:40 and Fridays 18:20-20:20
Social squash: Wednesdays 13:00-15:00 and Saturdays 11:40-13:40.
Our clubs suits a wide range of people. Squash is great if you're competitive and like a challenge but also good if you're just looking to have some fun and meet new people during the social sessions! Squash can be very physically intense so it's a great way to keep active and increase your fitness! You can join by coming down to one of our social sessions, for free, and if you want to keep coming you can buy membership on the YUSU website!
We have made some changes to training in order to comply with government and YUSU restrictions. Squash will be played in bubbles of six within which match play can be carried out with additional hygiene measures (see https://www.englandsquash.com/back-to-squash/guidance). This applies for both team training and for social squash, so if you don't know what bubble you're in or when to come to a session, please drop an email to the club so we can help you out! If anyone within a bubble gets Covid symptoms, that bubble will stop training until a negative test result is returned. If a positive test is returned, players must wait at least 7 days before returning to play. Players can move between bubbles but must not attend training for a week beforehand to avoid transmission. Players must socially distance when not on court and face masks must be worn when off court at all times.
