Nottingham Squash is one of the most vibrant clubs at the University. In 2017/2018 the club won performance club of the year and was nominated for team of the year. We take pride in welcoming new members into a friendly, sociable and enthusiastic atmosphere. The club operates 5 men’s teams and 4 ladies teams in the BUCS competitions and local Nottinghamshire leagues. Members of the club also compete in the BUCS Individuals tournament as well as international PSA tournaments.
The season 2019/20 is set to be even more exciting and successful. Our players all enjoy having the opportunity to play on our 6 brand new ASB glass back squash courts and 1 all-glass court at our brand new David Ross sports complex.

There is a weekly club day which involves coaching and match play for beginner and intermediate players, rackets and balls are available for new-comers. Also, the popular IMS box-leagues and ladder competitions allow students to compete competitively against players of their own standard. There are also a few tournaments for non-team members such as the UoN Graded Tournament. There are numerous socials throughout the year and this year we are hoping to organise a tour to a European city.
