Squash at Hull
5th September 2018
Here at the University of Hull we have an active and diverse squash club that encourages players of all abilities to come down and play. We have an ever growing population that offers casual turn up and play sessions to a more competitive side of leagues and ladders which are open to all students’ staff and members of the community.
This year we will be offer a range of sessions and competitions for you get yourself involved with, such as…
Monday King of the Court 6-7pm
King of The Court is similar to turn up and play however will incorporate more of a competitive edge. Players will pay £2.50 which will cover the cost of the light fees and squash balls for the session. How the session works – We have 6 squash courts here at the university and for this session court 1 will be the ‘top’ court and court 6 will be the ‘bottom’ court. 2 players then take a court each and battle it out to move up the courts to the top court. This is a fantastic opportunity to play relaxed squash with a variety of players and different abilities, whilst keeping that competitive edge.
Tuesdays & Thursdays ‘Turn Up & Play’ 12-1pm
Turn up and play session is exactly what it says on the tin. This is an opportunity for student’s staff and members of the community, to come down and play squash against people who have a range of different abilities. This session also offers the element of coaching for participants who are wanting to increase their knowledge within the sport and progress their skills. This session costs £2 which includes the court and racket hire as well as the level 2 qualified coach.
