Squash & Racketball
At the time of the opening of MTRC’s Squash Court in the Autumn of 1925, there were only three or four club courts in the whole of Lancashire and Cheshire. This was still the case until the late 1960’s although subsequently the game expanded with the building of new courts to meet the demand of the huge increase in the number of players.
The court benefits from excellent natural light and has a double sprung floor, making it a great playing surface.
Whilst the game declined in popularity in the 1990’s, it is now on the rise again and we are fortunate to have Darren Long as Professional who has played the game to a high level. Darren is happy to arrange games and also organise the squash ladder but is also more than happy to provide coaching sessions.
