Squash

Who we are:

St. Cuthbert’s Society Squash Club (SCSSC) is a very welcoming club, open to squash players of any ability, including absolute beginners. We currently have around 25 members, but are continually expanding.

Training, teams and matches:

This year we are running two 1 hour training sessions held weekly at the Racecourse squash courts (just a two minute walk from Parson’s Field!). These are quite relaxed, and give you the chance to improve your game by playing against others in the club. SCSSC have three teams competing in the coming year: Men’s and Women’s A teams, both competing in the Premiership league and in the College Squash Trophy, and a Men’s B team competing in Division 1. Matches usually take place once a week, often being played at the Racecourse (otherwise at Maiden Castle). Each team (chosen for each match) consists of five players, and each player’s match is best of five games.

We are hoping to start  both a Men’s and Women’s Cuth’s league this year where matches can be played at training sessions or in your own time. The St Cuthbert’s Squash facebook group will have a link to the online league table, and prizes will be awarded to the winners at the end of each term!

Results from last year:

Men’s A got to the semi-finals of the knockout college Squash Trophy. Women’s A finished second in the Premiership league table and won the knockout college Squash Trophy. Men’s B finished at the top of Division 1 league table.

Socials:

Several socials are planned throughout the year and are sometimes combined with St Cuthbert’s Tennis and Table Tennis Clubs, with a key event being the End of Season Dinner.

The Exec 2016-2017:

Tobias Graves (Club captain), Alex Blackwood (Men’s A team captain), Hannah Concannon (Women’s A team captain), Sam Watson (Men’s B team captain) and Matt Swan (Social secretary).

Regular sports wear is fine for training and matches, and the club owns several racquets and squash balls, so don’t worry if you don’t have your own!
