COVID-19 Update

IMPORTANT: Ickleford Squash Club is currently closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We plan to re-open as soon as possible after the current restrictions are lifted.

Ickleford Squash Club

The club aims to be the most friendly, inclusive, and vibrant squash club serving Hitchin, Letchworth, Stevenage, Luton and surrounding areas. We have two well-maintained, heated, squash courts with LED lighting, a viewing gallery with seating, an on-site bar, changing, and sauna facilities.

Members have access to over 100 regular players, a very active league ladder, frequent tournaments, regular social events, and teams competing in the Herts county squash leagues.

For those starting out, or looking to improve their game, group and individual coaching sessions are available including regular Ladies and Juniors sessions.

Get Involved

Come along to Club Night

The club runs an open night every Sunday evening between 6pm and 9pm.

These sessions are free of charge and open to all - just come and find us on the viewing gallery!

They are a great opportunity to try out the club, meet existing members, and get helpful advice from more experienced players.

Rackets and balls are available to borrow, but you will need to bring non-marking shoes if you want to play.
