We play all year round with competitions and draws for all squash members, regardless of standard or age.
Our facilities include 4 high quality squash courts (one glass-back). Courts may be booked by members at any time using our online booking system.

The Thorndon Business House Competition is a great way to get local businesses and corporations playing squash and meeting members of Thorndon.
Played with non-standard rules to allow for beginner players, the competition is run for approximately 10 weeks depending on team numbers.
Four players per team will play every Monday night (mixed teams all good!), kicking off at 6.30pm. It generally takes about an hour and a half to get through all 4 matches.
Cost: The cost is $140 per team for the season ($3.50 per person per game).–>
Who can come along? Anyone who is a member or considering becoming one. Guests are welcome to come down and try out the facilities if they are thinking of joining the club. There is no fee for using the courts, balls or racquets for them. We do ask that after their 2nd visit and they wish to continue coming along that they join as a club member.
What Do I Do? Come down to the club from about 5:30pm on Thursdays or 3pm on Sundays , wander into the squash area (follow the outside landing) and let a member know that you are new and here for club night. They’ll show you the ropes and introduce you to fellow members.
What Do I Need? Some gear to do some running around in (squash is energetic) and some non-marking sports shoes. If you’ve got a squash racquet, that is good. If not, the club can lend you one for the night (you’ll need to buy one if you want to join and keep playing though). The club supply squash balls for club nights.
What Else Happens? A lot of members head down to club night from 6.00-6.30pm, depending on court availability, they’ll jump on and just have a bit of a warm up or hit. A cut down version of squash is often played by several people on a court at once , called three-quarter-court. This is great for developing your skills of driving the ball long and down the wall.
If you want to play please contact the club captain Nicole Georgel to register your interest.
If you’re serious about squash or even wanting a little more challenge than the social games you’ve been playing, then Interclub is the competition for you. Interclub is all about being a team player and is a great way to improve your game!
What happens? Where possible, you will be placed in a team from 4–6 players of similar graded ability with a team captain. You play once a week on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, 7pm-11pm. Games are alternated throughout the Wellington region with five home games, and five away games. The home team supplies supper after the games.
Who can play? This competition is only open to full club members.
Remember Interclub is all about being a team player and rallying together as a team. There is nothing like the friendships you form from an Interclub team, travelling together to a destination and of course supporting each other on and off the court.
