COVID-19 Update

Last Updated:  September 2, 2020

The Squash Club House League will not operate during the Fall 2020 Semester.  The Athletics Department is developing a phased approach to opening it's facilitates.  Clubs are permitted to to 'return to train' under some circumstances, but competitive play is not allowed.  

The squash courts are also not available to be booked for recreational play at this time.

This web page will be updated as more information becomes available.

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 & 10:20 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. The level for new players is determined during the seeding night at the beginning of the semester so it is very important that new house league players attend the seeding night. League play, including play-offs, ends just before exams start. League players are automatically on the ladder.

Register at Client Services at the Athletics Centre or on-line at www.uoguelph.ca/connect.   Please note:  You must officially register with the Athletic Centre to be in the club.

Squash Q&A

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.
— Stefanie Sharp (BComm 2011)
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!
