Otley Squash Club in Otley, (between Leeds and Harrogate) is a private members club serving squash players from the market town as well as members from further afield in Menston, Guiseley, Ilkley, Knaresborough and Harrogate.
There is always a warm welcome for new members of any standard of squash. We have members who join as complete beginners right through to members who could compete at county standard. Aside from “friendlies”, we run an internal mini-league of approx 10-12 leagues which is the backbone of squash activity in the club. All members are encouraged to join the leagues as this provides the best way of getting to know other members and develop your squash game playing a wider variety of people.
We also have teams in the Harrogate league from league 1 to league 4, again where the standard of squash played varies from a very strong standard to intermediate club level squash. A list of Harrogate League fixtures and results can be found here.
The club is small – built in the 1970′s by the Rugby club as a means of keeping players fit. We have two courts and male and female changing areas. We are now independently run by a Committee who look after the running of the club, essentially we are run by the members for the members.
We have an Internet booking system from which members buy pre-paid credit to book court. The booking system also automatically controls the court lights to switch them on/off with the booked courts.
We have a number of membership categories available – see the Join Us pages for details and prices and to download a membership form.
Junior coaching takes place every Friday night in term time and juniors do not have to be a member to participate in this activity, a nominal charge is made.
On the first Friday of every month we run a Club Night on a Friday night starting at 7.20pm. Club night is for all members to come and have games with each other, regardless of standard of play. It’s also a really great way for non-members to come and have a taster and see if they would like to join, with no obligation and no cost. Club night is free for all.
If you have moved to the area and already play squash, or are thinking of taking it up for the first time, you are very welcome to come and join us. Please get in touch via the Join Us page!
