Full court squash is now allowed in line with step 4 of the Government's roadmap to easing of lockdown restrictions. Members who wish to play are required to accept the following responsibilities, which have been drawn up in accordance with the guidance from England Squash.

  • Do not come to the club if you display any Covid-19 symptoms, have been notified by Track and Trace that you have been in close contact with someone who has the virus, or you yourself have tested positive for Covid-19.
  • Do not wipe your hands on the walls.
  • Make use of cleaning materials and hand sanitiser that are available.
  • Maintain social distancing whilst inside the building, wear a mask as appropriate and adhere to any COVID-19 rules put in place by ISRC (except when on court).
  • When playing with a guest, ensure that they are aware of and comply with all restrictions.

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.
