Squash General Information
There are three squash courts adjacent to the main Clubhouse. The two older courts are Banbury courts and a glass backed court was opened in November 2014.
Booking a Court is done either via the booking machine in the clubhouse or on-line via the Squash Bookings link on the left. Full instructions are displayed by the booking machine. A charge of £5.00 per court is made for each booking of 45 minutes, within fixed time slots.
The booking system is credit based and you can “pay and play” or put money into your account in advance. This can be done using a cheque, cash or credit card – credit card payments incur a small handling charge – in the office and your account will be updated accordingly.
You will need your opponent to activate the lights by using the courtside reader on arrival. The system then automatically debits both accounts with £2.50.
If the same person uses their “i-button” to book and activate the lights, then the booking system will assume you are paying for a guest and will debit a guest fee to your account.
Players must wear squash shoes with non‑marking soles. Do not wear the shoes in which you travelled to the Club on the courts – this transports dirt and grit onto the courts and can mark the floor. Light coloured squash clothing should be worn.
Every Monday evening the courts are pre‑booked for an informal club session – 4.45pm to 5.45pm for juniors; 5.45pm to 6.45pm for racketball players; and from 6.45pm for squash players. This club session is organised by our coach Peter Crossman, who is on court for most of the sessions and provides coaching tips, organises routines and arranges games for all attendees – there is a charge of £5.00 for these club sessions.
Peter Crossman offers coaching for both seniors and juniors. Please contact Peter directly for programmes and details (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Members are welcome to bring guests to the Clubhouse either to socialise, or to play squash, or racketball. The guest fee is £3.00. Visitors should only play three times in any one-year, after which they are expected to be persuaded to join.
