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.

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.
