Squash

We welcome squash players of all standards and run box leagues, tournaments and social sessions throughout the year for members to get plenty of court time. Our qualified England squash coaches are available for lessons and guidance to help players improve their game, and our Surrey Cup teams set aspirational standards to challenge you even further.
