Walk-In-Squash is included as part of your Key Holder Membership. When you play, you will be allocated a handicap by one of the existing players. You will play three games to 31 points using point-a-rally scoring. As an example, if the difference between your handicap and your opponent's handicap is 7 the starting score will be -4, +3. Based on your results, your handicap will be adjusted for the next time you play. Walk-In-Squash is held at the following times:
If you are over 35 years of age, you can put your name down to Masters Squash Pennant. Start as a reserve and take up a full-time position when one becomes available. There are three matches per court per night. The format is timed point-a-rally scoring with two halves. The first half is 20 minutes long and the second 15 minutes. This is a good work-out. There is a maximum of 36 players and each pennant usually last 11 weeks. All standards are welcome.
Masters Pennant is held on Monday night and starts at 7:30pm, finishes at 9:45pm with supper after in the clubroom.
Wednesday In-House Pennant is open to all age groups and all standards. Hand-In, Hand-Out scoring is used and there are three or four matches on each court. Start off as a reserve and take a full time spot when one becomes available. Each pennant usually lasts 6 weeks. This group has regular social functions.
For the more advanced and more competitive players there is an inter-club pennant competition. Three centres currently participate; Kingborough, Parsons and Eastside. There are two divisions and you will be placed in accordance with your ability.
There are no additional fees to play Inter-Club pennant. Home matches are covered and a full refund is given for payments at away clubs.
We have a few older members who play squash and Gentle Squash. Gentle Squash is played with a foam ball and shorter rackets. It is gentle exercise and very chatty. The Gentle Squash fee is covered by Key Holder membership.
