Hello and welcome to BL Squash!
Every Wednesday afternoon our club meets in Old Street at Finsbury Leisure Centre for 2 hours to play some good old squash! The sessions run from 2pm to 4pm and have something to offer for every type of squash player:
There will be coaching available on the first and third Wednesday of every month for competitve/team players or for those who are interested in improving their game: our excellent coach has played Pro-Circuit Squash for 20 years and has years of coaching under his belt
There are social sessions on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month which are more relaxed and for social squash games
We run an Internal League with QM squash which members can sign up to on PlayPass (https://playpass.com/barts-and-the-london-squash-club) if you want to take part in a little friendly intra-university competition
The league is a double elimination league and fixtures take place on Wednesday afternoons within the usual sessions
If you are interested in competing within external leagues you can join one of our sqush teams! We have three competitive Men's squash teams (1st, 2nd and 3rd team) and a competitive BL-QM squash Woman's team. There are lots of opportunities to support and join these teams and play against other London Universities whilst representing Barts and the London Squash.
We’re a really friendly bunch and really passionate about squash. If you’d like to give squash a go, try any one of our Wednesday sessions. We look forward to meeting you on the courts!
The club has a back up supply of raquets for those new to the sport, however please bring a raquet with you if you own one. Teams will be selected based on performance. If you are selected, you should attend weekly team training and fitness. If you are chosen by your respective Captain, you will be included in competitive games. If you are not selected to play as part of a team or if you are not interested in competitive squash you can social squash with coaching alongside the vast majority of the club. We aim to include as many members as possible in competitive squash.
