Get Involved

Want to learn to play, looking for a club or just looking for opponents? This page will hopefully give you the information you need.

Learn To Play
If you want to learn to play squash, the first thing you are going to need to find is a court! Take a look at the menu at the top of the screen to find your nearest Club or Sports Center. The contacts on the club pages should be able to assist you in finding a partner to play or a coach to teach you.
You can view the rules here.

Improve
The best way to improve is to play better players! Ask your local club when their club night is, or if there is someone that can give you a game that might push you!

Teams
Playing in one of the teams is a great way to improve your squash quickly whilst having a great social night out too! Many clubs/centres have teams and are always on the lookout for new talent! The teams cover a wide range of abilities….so don’t be worried about asking!!

If you want a game, a new squash/racketball partner…or whatever……why not visit our forums?

    I am in my 50’s and used to love to play squash. I would like to try again – I have a reasonable level of fitness – still go jogging (couldn’t call it running). Does your club accomodate beginners/returners?

    My nearest Leisure Centre is Liskeard.

    Regards
    Marie

      Hi, thanks for your interest in Squash and sorry for the slow reply!

      Liskeard (Lux Park) have not had a team in the Cornwall Squash Leagues for some time now and we would love for them to field a team in the future.
      Because of this though, I don’t have a contact for the squash side of their club.

      All clubs always welcome new players…and I am sure they will be more than happy to help you find a partner.

      If you don’t have their number… it’s 01579 342544.

      Hi Marie

      Now I realise that this is a very late response to your message! but I too live in liskeard and am just investigating getting back into squash. Did you get anywhere or, if not, are you still interested in trying to start playing again?

    Hi there,

    I’m looking to get involved in more squash over the winter and was wondering if there is anything going on in the wadebridge/bodmin area at all? Are there any ladies teams around? I played quite a bit at uni, and was part of the team there, but it’s been a couple of years without playing regularly, and I’d very much like to get back into the sport.

    Any help, or advice would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you

    Faye

    Hi there,
    I’d like to get back into playing squash regularly and was wondering if there are any clubs in the Bodmin/wadebridge area at all? I used to play in the Uni team, but haven’t played properly for a couple of years. Any help or advice would be great. Thank you. Faye

    • Matt Waterton says:

      Hi Faye,

      There are courts in both Wadebridge (Sports Centre) and Bodmin (Dragon Centre).

      I don’t think there is much going on at Wadebridge and it only has 1 court without much in the way of a viewing gallery….
      Bodmin however, has 2 courts and has internal leagues/ladders, so that would probably be the best place to start.
      Have a word with the guys behind the desk and they’ll point you in the direction of some players/contacts!

    I’m trying to find opponents to play in Liskeard. Sadly there is no club or even a squash ladder just to find people to play. Are there any other players in Liskeard looking for new opponents?! Happy to receieve emails at danielfagg@hotmail.com. In terms of standard, I’m fairly competent having played on and off for several years.

    • Matt Waterton says:

      Hi Dan,

      Thanks for the post and apologies for the slow response.

      Its a shame that there aren’t any players up at Lux Park anymore as they used to have a couple of teams…..
      I’m not sure of any current players who are in the Liskeard area to play, but Bodmin does have ladder and quite a few players as does The Garden at Torpoint.
      I wonder if the staff at Lux Park might be able to set up a small ladder to try to get things going up there?…I’m sure that you are not alone in wanting to find new opponents.
      If you are unable to speak to anyone there, let me know and I’ll try to contact them myself to try to get something going.

      • Alan Norman says:

        Hi Matt
        I too have moved to the Liskeard area and would like to have a hit down here, did anything come of the conversation with Dan, as squash opportunities seem few and far between here?

        Alan

        • Matt Waterton says:

          Hi Alan,

          Sorry that you couldn’t register for the forum….it has only just been implemented….I’ll look into that.

          I suggest you drop an email to Dan and get a hit together. We are very light on the ground in Liskeard nowadays….there used to be a team, internal leagues, etc. But that all fell by the wayside.
          We could really do with an enthusiastic Liskeardian to push things forward…with the help of Cornwall Squash & Racketball…of course!

          I’ll send Dans email address to yours.

    I am trying to find a league in the Launceston area. I went to the Phoenix sports centre but the manager didn’t know of any. Does anyone know of any in the Ancestor area?

    • Matt Waterton says:

      Apologies for the delay in replying.

      I’m sorry to hear that there isn’t anything happening up at Launceston….there used to be a team and thriving leagues….but this seems to be the story all over the county.
      Who do you currently play up there?
      Would you like a Launceston page to help arrange games and get in contact with other players?

  6. Alan Norman says:

    Hello
    I have just moved to the Liskeard area and am looking for squash partners and especially a club ladder or league. It does seem there is very much on offer in the area can anyone give me some advice or point me in the right direction.

    I realise the forum is the real place to post this but it will not allow me to register

    Alan

    Thank you in advance

  7. Alan says:

    Thanks for that Matt
    I have contacted Dan and will be dusting off the Dunlop Maxply Fort once more for a hit.

    Thanks for replying

    Alan

    • Matt Waterton says:

      That’s great news!!!

      In the coming months we might be doing some things on open days, coaching, teams…. etc… is that something you might be interested in?

  8. Alan says:

    Yes, I may well be interested in that Matt

  9. Tobias Rossi says:

    Hi,

    I’m really interested in joining a squash team. I have recently got involved in the sport and am very passionate about continuing playing and think a team would be perfect. I’m 24 and live between Truro and Falmouth.

  10. Jo Banks says:

    Hi, any ladies looking to play in either Bodmin or Launceston. My squash partner Karen and I are always looking for new players, at any level. Please get in touch via this forum, we play for fun but are always looking to improve our game.

    • Holly says:

      I’ve been looking for people to play for a while. I play at Uni but when I come home to Cornwall am always stuck for females to play! I’m desperate for a game or just some skills practice! May be 2 years too late in replying to this post but if I’m not then let me know! I can get to bodmin quite easily from where I live. Thanks!

      • tbowyer says:

        Hi Holly,

        You sound like my daughter! She used to play at Southampton Uni and loved it there!

        Hope you can get a game in the Bodmin area? I’m more involved with the Truro Club but that’s quite a way out of your way.

        Hope you get some games at the Dragon Centre or at Polkyth maybe.

    Hi, is there any ladies/ladies team around Truro?
    I’m not a beginner but keen to start playing regularly.
    Many thanks
    Jenna

    • tbowyer says:

      Hi Jenna,
      We don’t have a ladies team as such in Truro at the moment but we do have some ladies playing regularly at the club. There are various ways of playing at Truro but really the aim is to meet other players and get started. I will send you an email using your address so you can contact me again if you would like to be introduced to the club and start playing.
      Apologies for lateness of reply but I’ve been away for quite some time.
      Hoping we can get you back into it.

    Unfortunately it’s been very infrequent all summer. I’d be happy to come to Truro occasionally if it meant I could play a decent game or two! Thanks

    • tbowyer says:

      Hi Holly, you’re always welcome to get a game or two at Truro. I can set this up if you want. Free initially until you decide if you want to join then it’s just £35 for 3 months introductory. Sorry it’s way late – I missed your reply. Tony

      • Paul Sessions says:

        Hi
        If anyone would like a game in Bodmin or Wadebridge please get in touch – i’ve recently moved from Winchester and keen to continue playing (any level !).
        Paul

        • tbowyer says:

          Hi Paul, I’m not sure who plays at Bodmin or Wadebridge but I’m pretty sure that if you dropped by at either you’ll be given a list of names. St Austell also has a good number of players on their ladder. You have come from a great club at Winchester, hope we can provide Cornish opposition for you! Tony (County Chairman)

          • Paul Sessions says:

            Hi Tony

            Thanks for the reply – I have dropped into both but no success as of yet… I will keep searching ! If you hear of anyone just wanting the odd social game, please do pass on my details (happy to play ladies and gents).

            Best wishes

            Paul
