Club profiles: Squash


The squash club meets every week on Wednesday in the Galway Lawn Tennis Club, there's training for all levels with drills and matches, come along between 8.15 and 9:45pm. We are hoping to extend these hours this year to help with COVID19 safety. We can provide you with a racket, but having your own is strongly encouraged for hygiene reasons. Many of our players had never played before this September. There are players of all levels at training sessions so you'll get a great game and meet some new people, no matter what your skill level.

Our main event of the year is Intervarsities, this is always a fantastic weekend away and a great way to make new friends! We enter teams at all levels and make sure to include everyone who is interested. 

Squash was ranked the healthiest sport by Forbes magazine burning 10% more calories than any other sport! An hour of squash can burn up to 1000 calories. It helps that it's a lot of fun to play too. Seen as squash isn't influenced by the weather it is the perfect winter sport, especially in rainy Galway!
