Squash is the best sport out there! Yes, of course we'd say that but it really is perfect, particularly for those who have never tried it and are looking to play something new. Squash is fast-paced, a fantastic workout and a great social sport, not to mention being voted the world's healthiest sport by Forbes!
Our club has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere with weekly socials, amazing student and professional coaches along with great players that are always keen to get on court and have some fun.
But don't take our word for it, we are very proud that over 97% of our members were "Very Satisfied" with our club last year, we are the 4th most successful Sports Club at Bristol University and the 5th best Squash Club in the whole of the UK!
Whilst we pride ourselves on our outstanding results and fantastic way all our members improve their level of Squash, it does not account for everything we do as a club, for the Squash related information head to the Club and Team Squash sections. We are also very pleased to offer our members a friendly and inclusive environment to meet new friends and get involved in what we would consider an extended family of Squashies. On top of our regular Squash sessions we put on, our Social Secretaries also arrange weekly socials. This can be a range of things varying from parties, sober socials, house and pub crawls, fry ups, curry nights and of course plenty of fancy dress. Our members love them! We take part in Sports Night each week where after these socials we will inevitably end up at one of Bristol's finest nightclubs where we share the dance floor with over 50 other Uni Sports Clubs. It's a fantastic way for Club and Team players to mingle and is always a lot of fun. Why not get your housemates and friends involved, we love seeing new faces, drop us a message and your friends can come and taste what its like to be a Squashie for the evening, however when they inevitably want to come again they will have to buy a Club Membership to do so.
We also have the annual Christmas and Summer Meal which are black tie events, an opportunity to strut your stuff if some of Bristol's finest culinary establishments. Each summer we also run a tour, we've been to places like Aiya Napa, Barcelona and Croatia, it is a highlight as our members experience and new place together and often is the perfect ending to an amazing year with UoB Squash Club.
Our first official Grand Opening Social will be on Wednesday 14th October however we find it easiest to organise and provide details via our Facebook page so be sure to give us a like so that you don't miss out! Head to the Club Squash and 'Key Dates' section for more information.
We train and play predominantly out of Bristol Grammar School, just a 5-minute walk from the University precinct.
As you walk along Elmdale Road, you will see a hedge alongside the pavement (depending on which way you are walking down the street). About halfway there is an iron gate leading to a set of steep steps; the courts are located at the top.
