Welcome to Cardiff University Squash Club!
The Squash Club welcomes players of all standards, from complete beginners to pros, with something for everyone.
We have two women's team and two men's teams which play weekly in the BUCS and Squash Wales leagues. However a vast majority of our members join for the social aspect of the club.
Based at the Talybont Sports and Fitness Centre we run social club sessions once a week that are open to players of all levels. These informal sessions run on Sundays afternoons. We have a beginners session from 12-1pm where there is basic coaching from commitee members available, most weeks, to help improve your technique. Social courts sessions then between 1-3pm (as two, 1 hour sessions).
There is weekly squash training for team players which takes place on Monday evenings for Mens and Friday evenings for ladies on an invitation only basis.
If you would like to come to these sessions, we require you to book a slot on the Spond app/website. Please download the Spond app and enter the Cardiff University Squash Club code MSTSC to book. Alternatively, download via: https://group.spond.com/MSTSC
We the following memberships available:
– Social Membership (£30) – for those who would like to play socially on a Sunday and attend socials (NEW: optional entry into Squash Club box league now included).
– BUCS Membership (£40) – includes all of the above, as well as training sessions and entry into the BUCS teams to compete against other universities.
– BUCS & League Membership (£50) – includes all of the above, as well as entry in the local Squash Wales Leagues to compete against other local club teams.
NEW: Squash Club Box League
We welcome all player levels and want to provide as much opportunity for you to play squash and network with other members of the club! Therefore this year we will be organising a Box League internally within the Squash Club, which will help you rapidly improve your game and gain more match play with people roughly of the same standard in a friendly yet competitive setting. This is a huge perk for those who would like to buy a social membership as this was not previously included.
Regular social events are organised for all members. These include alcoholic and non-alcoholic activities, so can range from fancy dress nights, to doubles competitions, awards nights and go-karting.
In previous years we have run various fundraising events for charities, including bake sales, a badminton tournament which raised £177 for the British Heart Foundation and a Strava group challenge which raised £625 for Mind. This year we are hoping to raise even more money for worthwhile causes!
Any members who purchase their membership have up to 2 weeks to apply to a refund from the club up to of half the cost their membership price. If so, please contact our Club President and our Treasurer.
