Would you like to play in a league?
The club’s internal league is a great way to play squash and meet other players, the league offers lots of levels so you do not have to be a professional to play! Are you still not sure? Why not trying squash coaching, George Willis is a level 2 squash coach and his rates start from £18 a session, after some sessions with George he will be able to advice you on your level and whether you are ready to try the club’s internal league, so give squash a chance it’s a fantastic game.
We anticipate the county inter-club and club seasons to restart mid October. The official dates have yet to be published for the county games but, if history is a guide then we believe the first games to be played around the middle of the month.
Playing in either of the clubs’ leagues:
club county or club internal requires a subscription fee, a one off payment to the club. So, if you want to play in the Dallington Fitness Internal League, the annual fee due is £30 and playing at Dallington Fitness club county level requires an additional fee of £10.00 or a combined total of £40. In order to facilitate a smooth sign up for Dallington Fitness’s squash leagues 2015/16 players can now pay in the following ways: on line: by bank transfer, at reception by cheque, cash or card.
If, you are paying by bank transfer: please name your payment with your full name followed by Squash. Also, can you let me know that you have made the payment by bank transfer following the process below.
Once we have received your payment we will liaise with the club team captains and Neil so that they can organise the tables and arrange for the meetings to ensure that the season kicks off in a positive way.
It is very important that ALL players follow the registration process below, failure may mean you are prevented from being entered into one of the leagues. Work with the club and we will work hard to ensure sign up is painless.

Can I take the time to remind you about some basic club rules regarding squash:
1. Squash Court Bookings:
Bookings after 4PM: We are going to enforce: one court time per 2 players. 40 Minutes is normally enough time for players to get a good game.
Please don’t double book courts using two names! Anyone found doing so will lose their bookings completely.
2. Court cancellations:
Can we please have 24 hours notice. We don’t want to introduce a fee for late cancellations but we have to make it fair. If, you are not sure if you need the court then please do not book up.
3. Pay as you go players:
Will need to pay in advance: if you fail to pay in advance we will remove your name from the booking sheet
Pay as you go members are welcome to join DF Internal League, but only club members paying a monthly membership in advance are permitted to join the Club County League.
Footwear must be a non marking carbon. Because reception are told to check please be patient with the staff if they ask if your coloured squash trainer sole is non marking and if they ask you to prove it. They are doing their job, to keep our courts in pristine condition, which is best for you, the players.
Trainers must also be indoor only please! Do not come in wearing your shoes, this is classed as outdoor footwear and is not expectable. We want to go back to old traditions when players would not dare to walk into the squash club wearing their kit and squash trainers on their feet. Let’s become traditional again, wearing all whites.
