Squash and Pickleball

If you've got quick reflexes and love some healthy competition, squash is the sport for you. It will improve your speed, your strength and your reaction time, and it's sociable too (even when the competition is intense!).

We have over 70 fantastic squash courts across the UK so whether you’re an experienced player who’s keen to find a new place to play, or you’re ready to pick up a racquet for the very first time, our clubs give you the ideal place to get started.

Or why not try something new with Pickleball at your local club. Pickleball is easy to pick up for racquet sport novices and veterans alike – it’s fun, social, and surprisingly addictive. Pickleball players use paddles – with a larger, more flexible hitting surface than table tennis bats – to hit a lightweight, perforated plastic ball on a badminton-sized court with a lowered net.

We’ve got almost 200 superb badminton courts across the UK, as well as expert coaches and regular competitions, so whether you already love the game or are keen to get started, you’re in the ideal place.
