The Squash Club has two courts which were refurbished in 2014 to a high standard. The lighting is modern LED units which not only provide a bright white light but are economical to run and guaranteed for 5 years. The outside court is available at any hour. Members can purchase a key which allows access at any time. Court 1 in the main building is only available when the main building is open.
Squash club membership is £25 per annum for adults and £15 for juniors under 18 years old. The membership fee includes a membership contribution to Sport in Desford.
Court fees are only £4 per 40 minutes and members may book up to 3 weeks in advance. Booking sheets are situated on the noticeboards outside each court.
We have one men’s team that competes in Division 3 in the Leicestershire Leagues.
The first team is currently in Division 3. Age is no barrier. Our youngest team player is 16 years old and the eldest 62.
We have two Ladies teams in the Leicestershire Leagues. Jackie Walters organises the ladies section.
Every Thursday we have a club night which costs just £2 per person where the members play social round-robin squash. Players of all abilities take part; ladies, men and juniors and it is an opportunity for new members to meet other players in a social atmosphere and test their skills against the top players in the club.
There is also a squash ladder if you are feeling competitive.
There are changing and shower facilities in the outside court building and members have 24 hour access by way of a key (£5 deposit on joining).
Court fees are paid for by coin meters which accept £1 and 20p coins. £1 for 10 minutes.
The Club is run by unpaid volunteers who deal with memberships, court fees, Leicestershire league fees and fixtures, cleaning, maintenance and liaison with SiD management.
Membership application forms are available on the notice boards outside each court and should be sent to Ron Buck.
