The Squash Melbourne Club is for those who want to play in a team in a regular weekly squash competition. Playing weekly matches against teams from other clubs, you will play against people at your own standard and who may have very different squash styles. It’s a great way to improve your game, and a great opportunity to socialise with other squash players.

The Squash Melbourne Club is one of Melbourne’s biggest squash clubs. We currently have:

Club Circuit:

The Squash Melbourne Club are proud to have been invited to submit teams for the long-established and popular VSRA Club Circuit competition for the Autumn Season commencing in February 2021.

Teams in the  Club Circuit competition come from many of the Private Clubs around Melbourne, such as the Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club, the RACV Club and Mulgrave Country Club to name a few. The standard of squash at the upper grades is at near- professional standard  but there are grades to suit all standards of players. Squash Melbourne Club will find a team to suit you!

With 14 Grades available, all standards of competitive squash can be catered for.

Visiting Teams in the Club Circuit Competition are invited to enjoy a sit down supper and drinks after the matches are played, developing a great camaraderie amongst teams  and ensuring  comprehensive post-mortems of the evenings play!

Home and Away Matches are played one evening a week over 15 weeks plus finals  with a 6.30pm start. Cost for the season is approximately $35 per week which covers your game fees and supper and some drinks for your team and your opponents. Your team captain will manage the finances!

You will need to be a paid up member of The Squash Melbourne Club and the Victorian Squash and Racquetball Association  Membership details are here

 Summer Squash League: 

The Squash Melbourne Club have a number of teams in this competition commencing in February 2021, with State Grade Teams at the top end of the league and lower grade teams to suit all standards and experience. The general nature of the Squash in the SSL is competitive but casual and friendly!

Matches are typically held on Tuesday or Wednesday evenings at Courts around the Melbourne Metropolitan area, from 7pm and a casual light supper is provided by the home team.  Cost is only $20 per week but you will need to be a paid up member of The Squash Melbourne Club and the Victorian Squash and Racquetball Association.

 VSMA – Masters Autumn Pennant:

Masters Squash – the very name conjures up images of the legends of our  sport plying their skills in their halcyon days… And although there are some very wily and experienced players in the competition, Masters is available to any Financial Member of Squash Melbourne Club over a certain age (35 for Men, and 30 for Women).  Matches are played on a Thursday evening from 7pm at clubs around the Melbourne Metropolitan area, over a 15 week season plus finals.  We are submitting teams in a number of grades for the upcoming Autumn Season (commencing in February 2021) and we are sure to be able to find a team for your standard of play. The cost is only $20 per night with the home team providing a light supper for their visiting opposition team.  Although the match play is fiercely competitive – the post match conversations and laughs are the stuff of legend!

In-House competition:

 Be the King or Queen of the Club.  Squash Melbourne will again be running the enormously popular In House Social Competition – with the 1st session starting on the week commencing 18th January

Based on your skill level (your best guess – or ours!) you will be allocated to a group of 6 players of a similar level.  You play your 5 matches within 6 weeks and can organise with your opponent to play at Squash Melbourne anytime over the 6-week season, record your scores over 5 games regardless of the result – and at the end of the 6 weeks – you have the chance to go up or down a grade depending on your results.

The in-house competition is an ideal comp for those dipping their toes in the water of competitive squash, those that might be time-poor or can’t commit to a pennant team every week – or want to just test themselves out before moving on to one of our pennant competitions. It also gives you the opportunity to meet other players of a similar level and widen your social squash group. The only cost is the $18 per person court fee – and represents great bang for your buck!

Don’t forget that you can also purchase a Discount Card which reduces the cost to only $15.00 a match!

We are allocating Divisions now for the new season – so flag your interest with Adrian Boden at the club via email at adrian@squashmelbourne.com

If you aren’t sure where you would fit in, come down for a hit during a weekend practice session. We’ll pretty quickly work out whether you would fit into a team in a higher grade, a lower grade or somewhere in between.
