  • A member is allowed to play on a court if it has not been booked, but must observe the advice on playing “on spec”

Playing "on spec"

  • Players are allowed to play on a court without a booking stamp if the court has not been pre-booked. This, however, is on the strict understanding that court times as shown on the court booking screen cannot be changed. i.e. If a player books the following court after an “on spec” match has commenced” he / she is entitled to access to the court at the set time.
  • On spec players are advised to avoid confrontation by booking the following court to prevent this situation arising.

Guest Fees

  • When playing a guest (non-member), members must (i) select "*** GUEST ***" as the opponent and (ii) must pay a £3 guest fee at the bar (before or after playing).

Squash Club Management Committee
