Founded in 1976 as part of the local rugby club's sporting facilities, Penrith Squash & Racketball club is based in the Eden Valley. at Winters Park, Penrith. The club boasts 170 members, to whom we offer Squash, Racketball and Table Tennis across 3 courts. The 4th court is run by the rugby club as a dedicated multi use area. Changing facilities, showers, water machine & lockers are all available.
The club has active internal leagues for both Squash & Racketball and two Squash teams who play in the Premier League and League One of the Cumbria County Leagues. Our club professional Squash coach runs sessions on Friday afternoon for juniors between 4.30pm and 6.30pm during term time.
We run a weekly Club and Open Night for Racketball every Wednesday evening (5.15pm to 6.45pm) and Squash every Thursday evening (6pm to 8pm) for all members as well as those non-members interested in trying out squash or racketball without commitment to buying equipment or becoming a member.
We have closed and handicapped tournaments during the year for men, ladies and juniors.
Courts must be booked either remotely via a online booking system or can be booked at the club also. These are available in 45-minute slots, with lights paid for through meters at £5 per session.
Entry is gained by members via a key code entry system.
Visitors to the Penrith area are more than welcome to play at the club but must gain entry instructions by ringing Chris Lilley on 07740933989.
The Club is part of the Penrith Rugby Football Club Limited but has its own committee elected by the membership.
We welcome membership applications from adults, juniors (U18 or in full-time education) and families.
