Welcome to the England Squash affiliated Manor Park Squash and Racketball (S&R) club. The S&R section currently has around 120 regular Squash and Racketball playing members of all ages and abilities. Manor Park is a friendly and sociable club offering excellent facilities. The Manor Park Squash & Racketball section has 4 courts, including two glass backs, which is used for in-house and outside competitions.

We are very proud of our Racketball section, they say this sport is an easy game to start playing but a hard game to master. Racketball is played on a squash court using a bigger bouncier ball than a squash ball and a larger racket.  It is the perfect sport for improving cardio vascular fitness.

If you need more information or are interested in joining the S&R committee please email squash@manorparkmalvern.com

The preferred way to join the Squash & Racketball section is through the online Clubspark system. Memberships run for 12 months and payment can be made through the Clubspark system, bacs, cheque or cash. There are a variety of packages available for juniors, adults and all rackets play (includes tennis), please see the Clubspark website for details.

All membership fees include court lighting.
