players a chance to see this high level of squash and for some, a
chance to compete with them as well.
In our Programs we strive to help athletes reach their best as
both an athlete and a person.
This is our most popular league! Players sign up individually and
are arranged matches each week with players of a similar level.
Each week an email is sent out on the Friday to those in the
league asking whether or not you are able to play on the Monday
night coming. The lineup of matches is then sent out on the
Sunday evening so people are aware on Monday morning of
whom and when they play. Matches start as early as 5pm, so
please indicate if you have any time restrictions.

Online Squash Ladder
Our Online Squash ladder gives a little more competitiveness to your
weekly games if that is what you are looking for. Each participant is
given a rank within the ladder. Participants challenge one another
around them in the ladder by clicking on the opponent they would
like to challenge. An email, with which you can send a note, is then
sent to the player to let them know you would like to play. A great
way to find new and challenging games.
