Description

The Squash Club operates a House League in the Fall and Winter semesters and welcomes players of all skill levels – from beginners to the pros!  Squash is a fantastic game, and the club is a great way to get exercise, meet great people, improve your game, and most of all have fun.

House League takes place on Tuesday evenings between 5:00 & 10:30 pm. It is important that you can commit to a Tuesday evening game if you join the house league. You will have a 40-minute pre-scheduled match every Tuesday against another player who is in your general skill level. League play, including play-offs, ends just before exams start.

New for Fall 2021:  Squash Club scheduling and house league play will be managed this semester by the UofG intramurals office.  Players must be current UofG students, faculty or staff to register for intramurals.    

There are two steps to register (Deadline September 23rd):

  1. Pay the club fee at the AC or at www.uoguelph.ca/connect, selecting the most appropriate level based on the description below. 
    • Competitive A - Intended for more advanced players.  For former UofG Squash Club members this is for players in house league levels A, B or C. 
    • Competitive B - Intended for intermediate players.  For former UofG Squash Club members this is for players in house league levels D, E or F. 
    • Recreational - Intended for players who are newer to the game or who do not play very often.  Beginners are welcome. For former UofG Squash Club members this is for players in house league levels G, H or I. 

           Players will be seeded into levels for round robin play.

  1. Join IMLeagues | Squash (University of Guelph) | IM | Sport Home as a “Free Agent”. You will learn of your match times and can view results through IMLeagues.

What Participants Have Said...

The UofG Squash Club is a fantastic way to meet new people and stay in shape. Whether you have never played before, or have been playing for years, there is friendly competition to challenge you.

Being a part of the squash club for the past 3 years has been one of the most memorable parts of University for me. When I first joined it was a bit intimidating since I didn't know anyone in the club and my skills were lacking, but that quickly changed. Not only have I improved my game and, but I have also met so many amazing people along the way!
