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 teams and two men's teams with weekly matches in the BUCS and Squash Wales local leagues, therefore we provide plenty of match opportunities to help improve your game. However, a vast majority of our members join for the social aspect of the club.
Based at the Cardiff University Sports Training Village (Talybont) we run social club sessions once a week that is open to players of all levels. These informal sessions run on Sunday afternoons. We have a beginners session from 12-1 pm where there is basic coaching from committee members available, most weeks, to help improve your technique. Social courts sessions are then between 1-3 pm (as two, 1-hour sessions), to turn up and play with members of the club but no commitment is required.
For team players, there are weekly squash training sessions at Sports Wales on Monday evenings on an invitation-only basis.
If you would like to come to these sessions, please 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 have the following memberships available:
– Social Membership (£30) – for those who would like to play socially on a Sunday and attend socials.
– Team Membership (£60) – includes all of the above, as well as training sessions and optional entry into the local Squash Wales Leagues to compete against other local club teams. Also entry into the BUCS teams to compete against other universities.
NEW: Development Squad
We welcome all player levels and want to provide as many opportunities for you to play squash, network with other members of the club and improve your skills! Therefore this past year we have trialled running a development squad which has been successful. This is for players who are not quite at team standard but would like to play more than socially. Sessions will run once a week on Monday evenings after team training, sometimes with a team player to give coaching advice.
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!
