Squash is a great sport for those who have never tried it: fast-paced, a fantastic workout and a great social activity, not to mention being voted the world's healthiest sport by Forbes!
Our club has a great atmosphere with weekly socials, amazing coaches and great players that are keen to get on court and have some fun.

The University of Bristol Squash Club has various teams and commitment levels that can suit anybody. If you fancy becoming a team player then you are looking in the right place. The club is the 2nd BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport Competition) point earner for the University, with the Women's 1st team ranked 3rd nationally and earning the highest total of BUCS points for the Uni. We offer 4 Women's teams and 4 Men's teams that compete weekly in BUCS and local leagues around Bristol. Our womens 1st team plays in the BUCS Premier League at biannual weekend events, whilst our lower Mens and Womens Teams play in the regional Western Divisions on Wednesday afternoons. We are the 4th best University Squash Club in the country.
If you're looking to just try a new sport and meet new people, we also offer a social membership. This allows you to play in our Sunday Sessions which are student-run coaching for all levels - beginners, intermediates and elite. These sessions take place right in the centre of the Univeristy's grounds from 3-6pm and are extremely popular for a good workout and a place to socialise.
Another option is to join our Intraumural league. This offers you the chance to play members across the club, when you want to and if you want to. You will be put into leagues of 4-6, and you can contact your opponents to arrange your match when it suits you. This is a great way to improve your match play and get to know other players within the club!

Just like other sports, every Wednesday we have Sport Socials where we join other teams for their weekly night out.
But unlike some sports, we also have the Annual Christmas Dinner and the End of Year Dinner which are black tie events, held in some of the amazing local restaurants and bars Bristol has. It's an amazing night out at the end of term to relax post-exams and enjoy some good food.
Each summer we also run a tour. In 2015 we hit up Croatia for a week, 2018 we were sunning it up in Ayia Napa! This year we went to Calafell, just outside Barcelona, in a most graceful fashion. It's an amazing week to finish off the season with your new team and club mates.
