SCSSC is a friendly sports society with opportunities for players of any standard to play squash. We field 3 men’s teams and a women’s team across the various college leagues, and with 5 people per team there is plenty of space for anyone to give match play a go. For those who aren’t so competitively inclined, there is still training, usually twice a week, open for anyone to come along and play under no pressure!

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 four 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 Men’s B and C teams competing in Division 1. Matches usually take place once a week, often being played at the Racecourse (otherwise at Maiden Castle). Each team (rotated 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.

Results from last year

Men’s A got to the quarter-finals of the knockout college Squash Trophy. Women’s A finished second in the Premiership league table and came second in the knockout college Squash Trophy. 

Socials

Several socials are planned throughout the year and are welcome to absolutely anyone and are a great way to get to know people away from the squash court.
