Based out of the Heath Park Sports and Social Club as well as the Park Place courts, we run a squash club tailored to medical and Heath-based students.
Our primary focus is on providing free court time to our members so we can avoid the cash vampire that is self-funded exercise. Although talent is very warmly received – indeed we have some “outstanding” players – it is by no means necessary. Over the last few years we've amassed a great collection of individuals with widly ranging 'abilities' and so players of all skills - and otherwise - are warmly encouraged to join in.
Aside from 4 hours of casual squash a week, we take part in a local men’s league on occasional Tuesday evenings.
With many players always away on placement whenever we have matches, it's important for us to have as large a pool of men as possible to fill each rubber - no pun intended. Essentially, if you want a game, you'll get one.
Turn up to any of the sessions below at anytime in the year and you will certainly get a game.
At a meagre £7 for a yearly membership it's the cheapest way to play squash, especially when Park Place charge an aggressive £5+ for a single 40 minute warm-up.
Wednesday, Heath Squash courts: 2-4pm;
Sunday, Park Place Squash courts: 4-6pm
Home Matches at the Heath on Tuesdays 7-9pm.
