At Grove Park Squash Club we have players from a vast range of abilities, ages (Ron Yule finally retired from squash recently at the age of 88), and backgrounds. But whoever you are, you can choose from the range of different ways of playing to fulfill your squash requirements.
The main club night is on every Monday Evening (5.30pm - 10pm). There is also a smaller club night on Saturday (6pm - 8.00pm). These are opportunities for more social squash. There is no need to pre-book, just come down, sign up on the sheet on the balcony and have 20 minute matches with a vast range of different players. With court fees of only 50p each per session, you'll have plenty of money to spend in the bar afterwards.
A comprehensive internal squash winter league system is run embracing all playing standards. It allows you to quickly establish regular playing partners of a similar standard as well as new players to challenge you as you (hopefully) improve. Each league generally contains five players and last one month. The winter squash league is complemented by a slightly smaller summer league for those members wanting year round competitive squash. Both leagues are open to all men and women members.
We also run a Racketball leagues throughout the year (see below).
This is an area which issteadily growing. We organise an annual club racketball ball competition. It is all played in one night and uses the Monrad system so everyone is guaranteed four fifteen minute matches and will end with a ranking. We have also recently started internal racketball leagues which run every two months throughout the year. Rackets and ball are always available at the club to borrow so anybody can give it a try. If you've never tried it before, why not come down to a clubnight and give it a go - especially at 6pm on Saturdays.
Grove Park Squash Club has a keen, enthusiastic ladies section, but we are constantly on the look out for ladies of all standards to join the club.
The Ladies first team has been very successful in recent seasons, winning numerous trophies including the Cheshire Ladies League Division One for three consecutive years
We are hoping to enter an addition team into Division Three in future, to give everybody a chance to play at their own level.
As there are loads of men who play squash at Grove Park, there is ample opportunity to play mixed squash in the internal club leagues, tournaments, club nights or to play on one of their ten teams!
If you would like to know more about the Ladies Section at Grove Park, please contact the Ladies Captain, Hilary Kenyon, 07500045294.

The club runs a number of tournaments and competitions throughout the year. Any club member is eligible to enter the competitions providing they meet the basic entry requirements.
A doubles tournament is also held at least once a year. Once you enter you are paired with your partner on ability so the weakest players get to play with the strongest players. All the 15 minute matches are played in an evening and everybody gets to play four matches (though it takes about that long to figure out how to play it!). No doubles experience is required (it's not as much fun if you know what you are doing!).
If you want to improve your game or you are just a little rusty, quality coaches are available. Coaches Yawar Abbas and Jules Abbas-Silvera will take one to one & group sessions with beginners right through to elite players.
