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 have 4 courts, including one glass back, 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.

Squash & Racketball Court Opening

The Squash and Racketball courts will be opening up for play on 31st July. To begin with we will only be opening court 1.  It is essential that you book a court before arriving at the club.

As with all sports, in these unusual times, there will be restrictions on the type of play that can take place.

There should be no more than two players on court at one time.

Full squash & racketball games are only allowed to be played by the following groups: –

1. Members from the same household

2. Support bubble, government definition – i.e

In England, if you live by yourself or are a single parent with dependant children in other words, if there is only one adult in your home you can expand your close support network so that it includes one other household of any size. This is called making a support bubbleand means you are able to have close contact with them as you could if they were members of your own household.

For those from different households

Modified version of squash – ‘Sides’. An adapted version of the game for two players from different households. This cross-court version of squash is designed to comply with social distancing measures, with each player remaining in their own half of the court at all times. During the game, only one player should touch the ball and the court door, and players must not touch court walls. All equipment and touch points should be cleaned and players must wash their hands, before and after play – NOTE: please follow standard practice for court care – i.e. walls should not be cleaned with disinfectant to avoid damage to the plaster. 

Full guidance on the hygiene rules will be sent to members via email.

If you have any questions please email Ginny on ginstarlee@gmail.com or call 07989439117

World Squash Day

On 12th October 2019, Manor Park Squash & Racketball section celebrated World Squash Day.  Squash started in 1883 at Harrow School after a game of Rackets with a punctured ball.  The noise of the ball against the wall gave it its name.  The first purpose built court was built by Vernon Harcourt in Oxford in 1883 with the first British Open was held for men and women at Queen’s Club in London in 1922.

We were very pleased to see some younger players come and try out squash as well as a few adults.  It was good to see all ages getting onto the court with fun games and activities.

Many thanks to Peter Slater-Jones, one of our top junior players, for helping out on the day and assisting our coach James Robinson.  If you would like more information on squash email squash@manorparkmalvern.com
