Fall in love with the
perfect game.

The feeling of smashing a tiny rubber ball against a wall is pure joy. It's the reason we're on a mission to introduce squash to anyone who will listen in downtown Toronto.

We guarantee that you'll fall in love with the excitement of the chase, the exhilaration of each bounce, and the elation that can only come from hitting a drop shot.

What you need to know

heart Why it's good for me

Squash helps to:

  • Improve cardiovascular health
  • Increase strength and fitness
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Promote good coordination, agility, and flexibility
  • Build hand-eye coordination
clock Duration

We all know that the length of squash games can vary depending on the skill of the players, the temperature of the courts, and the scoring system. On average:

  • For beginners, a game will likely last around 20 minutes
  • For club players, a game lasts 40 minutes on average
  • Professional games often run approximately 60 to 90 minutes
barbell How to Improve...

One of the best ways to become a better squash player is for you to become fitter. Consider trying circuit training, where you'll work a variety of muscles and improve your aerobic and anaerobic fitness. Also, try to incorporate yoga and Pilates into your training schedule.

heartbeat Frequency

How often you play squash depends on you and your fitness. Many Members play 2 - 3 times per week, while others train almost every day. However, you can play too much. Be sure you're taking enough rest to avoid injury.

FAQ

How many courts do you have?

We have 3 squash courts in the heart of the Club, conveniently located by the HUB's lounge and bar, ratcheting Thursday night beer league up to a whole other level!

Do I need to book a court ahead of time or can I just drop in?

We offer online booking for our squash courts. If there is a specific time you would like to play, we recommend you to book 4 to 7 days in advance. If you are more flexible, you would be able to drop in at off-peak times to play. The primetime courts are at 7:30am, from 11:30am to 12:50pm, and 5:00pm to 6:50pm.

How do I sign-up for ladders, championships, tournaments, house league, etc.?

If you are already a Squash Member at the Adelaide, please contact Laurence to sign-up for these programs. If you are not a Squash Member and would like to become one, please contact Laurence.

How does the squash ladder work? Can I play anyone?

After an initial complimentary assessment session with one of our squash pros, you will be placed on the ladder, and can then challenge players up to 20 places from your position. If you beat someone in your zone, you take their position and they would drop down one place. You can challenge people in your zone through the online squash system.

What do I wear? Are eye-guards necessary?

Non-marking court shoes (meaning the sole of the shoe is very soft, the softer the sole, the less marking they are) are mandatory. Eye guards are strongly recommended. As for attire, typical fitness clothing works well.
