Bollington Squash Club
Looking to take Squash further than your weekly friendly game?
Bollington Squash Club is an open club that is made up of 4 main elements: Team Squash, Junior Squash, Social Squash & Coaching!
We have 4 Senior (Adult) Team’s that play on a Thursday night in the North West Counties Squash Leagues (NWCSL). They are in Divisions 2, 3, 4 and 5 so there is a team for players of all abilities. We also have 1 Ladies Team who play on a Monday night playing in Division 2. Teams play other clubs in the North West, such as Prestbury, Alderley Edge and some as far as Crewe. They usually alternate between “home” and “away” matches. Scores are posted online and the league tables are updated. The season normally runs from September – April . There is also a less formal “Summer League” which runs May – July and is a perfect introduction to Team Squash for newcomers and beginners.
To get involved contact our Club Representative and Head Squash Coach- Chris Ogden
If team Squash isn’t your thing then there are plenty of options to play socially; or if you are looking to improve, attending some of our organised coaching sessions.
Out of season, team players usually like to keep their eye in by attending “Club Night”. On Thursday nights from 7pm, in place of Team Squash match night, players of all levels take part in a less formal evening of Squash. People put their name down to play each other in 20-minute slots, usually getting 2 or 3 games in. The Ladies have their own ‘Ladies Only Night’ on Monday nights when out of season.
Players turn up to play each other in an informal night of Squash. Players put their name down to play each other in 20 minute slots, usually getting 2 or 3 games in.
Ladies Only - 7pm onwards
We have an internal Squash Ladder at the club. It allows people to challenge other players at the club on a less formal but still competitive basis. The ladder is made up of three parts: team players, social players and junior players. All parts of the ladder are integrated so both social and junior players have a chance to work their way to the top of the ladder. Ladder Rules apply and can be found on the Noticeboard by the Squash Courts. There is an initial £5 fee for joining the Ladder for you Card and set up, after which you’re free to arrange games and challenges!
We also have internal Box Leagues at the centre! Over a fixed term you are put into a league with fellow competitors. You arrange to play a match with each of the players before the Deadline. You fill in your scores on the table and at the end of the cycle players are either promoted or relegated into a new league based on their points tally! The Box Leagues are Free for Members and £2 per League for non-members.
If you wish to join the ladder or our Box Leagues, contact Chris Ogden.
If you are looking to improve we have lots of Coaching sessions through the week for both Children and Adults! Our Junior Squash Academy is the perfect place for youngsters to start learning the game and progressing through a well structured programme and player pathway!
We have a very popular and thriving Junior Section at Bollington Health & Leisure! In total there are over 80 kids who participate through the Squash Club; either by attending weekly coaching sessions or playing NWCSL Team Squash. We are proud to offer high level Squash Coaching with session for all ages and abilities. We start at the age of 4 and have sessions that cater right up to the ages of 19. These cover complete beginners right through to county and regional level sessions.
The club also has excellent links to the County association, Cheshire Squash. There is a clear pathway firstly through the club, then onto the county set-up and finally onto the England Squash programme.
Squash Coaching isn’t just for kids! We have a number of Adult Sessions as part of our Adults Squash Programme at Bollington Health & Leisure, aimed at increasing participation and delivering a fun, social and engaging session! Sessions range from Beginner to Team Training standards and are welcome to all. Spaces are limited however so it’s always worth checking/booking to avoid disappointment!
If you want to improve a more specific area of you game, our Coaches offer one-to-one private coaching! Contact them directly to book a session and improve your game!
