Club Activities and Facilities

Social and competitive squash tournaments are run throughout the year, usually before the start of the league season and then again after the league has been completed.  Doubles games have become very popular over the past few years and there are regular matches played each week.

The club boasts seven conventional plaster-walled courts with viewing balcony plus an international standard all‑glass match court, seating up to 200 spectators. This is complemented by the adjacent “Spinners” sports bar with braai area, dining facilities plus a viewing window adjacent to the glass court.

Introductory, Level 1 and Level 2 coaching can be arranged for members by emailing [email protected].
