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 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. 


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.

The Exec 2019-2020:

Edward Walton (Club captain), Barney Henton (Men’s A team captain), Sally Wyatt (Women’s A team captain), Rory Todd (Men’s B team captain), Max Woolerton (Men’s C team captain) and Robert McAnany (Social secretary).

Getting involved:

New members are always welcome, join our group on Facebook (search for Cuth’s Squash 2019-2020) or email edward.r.walton@durham.ac.uk

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!
