It's official: squash leaves tennis, cycling, running and rowing for dead when it comes to burning calories. And you never have to worry about the weather. To top it off, we have some of the best squash courts in all of Auckland.
The first thing to do is show up at club night (Thursdays from 6:30pm) for a grading from our professional squash coach. He'll match you with someone of similar ability to give you a decent hit.
Once you've got a grading you're ready to play interclub, the home and away team's event played one night a week. Home teams always put on the after-match spread, so although it's competitive, interclub's fairly social too.
Sure, as long as you play them outside peak hours (4pm - 8pm) and remember to pay the visitor's fee . After 3 visits you should probably start dropping a few hints about becoming a member too.
Fill in one of the visitor's fee envelopes outside the club office, stick in $10 for every hour played, then leave it with the barman or slip it under the door of the club office.
You should be able to find a spare court most of the time. But the courts do get booked for tournaments, interclub and juniors. So check the notice board at the club as well as the calendar of events . Better still make a booking.
The squash lights are operated on a panel to the right of the Pro Shop. You'll need two members' swipe cards to turn them on during peak hours (4pm - 8pm). Off-peak, you only need one member's swipe card plus the swipe card on the chain to the left.
As with most sports, squash can be damn frustrating if you're constantly making unforced errors. Grab a few tips on technique, ring craft and more from our resident professionals, and chances are you'll enjoy your squash a whole lot more.
