Description

The Squash Club operates 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. There are two options for play:

  1. House League: 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.
  2. Ladder Only: ‘Ladder only’ play is an option for players who cannot, or do not want to, commit to a Tuesday evening game. All house league players are automatically on the ladder and each league game counts as a ladder match as well. Ladder players arrange their own matches.

For current information about key club dates including the information/seeding night and registration deadlines please visit the ‘News’ and ‘FAQ’ pages at: www.uoguelph.ca/~squash

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!
