    Chrisites has closed I believe,Know a few of the lads who used to play there now play in the city with the Silversprings and The Orchard Bar clubs.

    Christies in Blarney is still going but members only and no club just for fun and fitness.
    If enough members we could re-start a club... Any interest???

    Spawell have two courts, Churchtown the Del la salle secondary school have two, if you want to book the schools you need to ring after after 5pm or 6pm i think, and they not free during the day week days.
    I play for the Spawell team, but the Del la salle team let us train with them sometimes if they've free spots in their training sessions, there is a free spot tonight if you wanted to go, 7 to 9 pm, they've a coach who comes down and you get to play everyone, usually 8 players per session. 0868106349 is my number, let me know if you want to play.




  • Any competitons or squash training camps held after Saturday leagues finish up?




  • bayobayo wrote: »

    I used to play in Phoenix Club but since it closed down and my partner moved back to his country, I have not played, so I am a bit rusty. Anyway, I am willing to play. I moved recently to Saggart, so near Tallagh is perfect for me.




  • I'm home in Cork for the weekend. Anyone know of courts open to the public tomorrow?

    No courts in Tallaght, nearest would be Spawell which is pay and play.http://www.carrgolfcentre.com/squash.html Spawell have a box league too.

    And there are nice ones in Ballyfermot too,
    http://www.ballyfermot.ie/component/option,com_sobi2/catid,64/Itemid,72/

    Both are play and play courts no membership.

  • I thought as I have the time I would make a list of all squash clubs/courts in Leinster so there is a ready reference for people who want to join somewhere locally. I will leave it to others to do Munster, Ulster and Connaught. This is not exhaustive and is really un-checked in parts as clubs close down and new ones open too. I have put a quick description of any courts I have been to / played on. I am sure others will be able to amend and add to this list especially since I am only aware of Leinster squash on the whole. I have not included websites since many are obviously googleable if you want to check one out.

    Leinster

    Fitzwilliam LTC - Home to many international squash fixtures and considered the top club along with Sutton in Leinster (despite Carlow having at least two of the top-ranked players in the country and many of the best juniors) (8 courts)

    Sutton LTC - The other strictly white-clothing policy club besides Fitzwilliam

    Westwood - In Leopardstown and along with the two above they tend to feature heavily in the Leinster leagues

    Aer Lingus - Out in ALSAA beside airport (3 courts???) Visited the place but never played here

    Joe May's - Skerries

    David Lloyd Riverview - Another expensive club in Clonskeagh

    Leinster Cricket Club - I used to belong here but left because of moving house and it became too far to travel too. (2 courts) Friendly place, not really many junior players playing but they enter quite a few teams in the leagues still.

    RTE - (2/3 courts) PLayed here once, although I think membership and use is really only open to RTE staff. (Correct me if I am wrong)

    Mountpleasant - Ranelagh - Another tennis/squash combo who are very professional if a tad exclusive.

    Old Belvedere - Squash/Rugby combo in Donnybrook. Don't know much about them but they do seem to field very competitive teams in the Leinster Leagues.

    Total Fitness - Sandyford. One of the many squash/fitness centre combos

    Sandycove Squash club - No info

    Total Fitness - Castleknock

    Curragh Squash club - In the army training centre. Not sure if they are open to membership outside the armed forces. Someone told me once that they had very low (or was it high) ceilings.

    All the teams above regularly enter teams in the Leinster League as can be found on the Leinster Squash website

    Other Clubs in Leinster that I know of

    Arklow Squash Club
    Mullingar Squash Club
    Tullamore Squash Club
    Carlow LTC
    UCD
    Trinity
    DCU
    Kilkenny Squash & Racquet Club
    Dundalk Rugby Squash Club
    Squash club in Drogheda
    Bridgeview Squash Club - Wexford

    Other courts (but no clubs as such) that I know of still in existence:

    K Club
    Killenard Community Centre (Portarlington) (1 Court)
    Ballinakill (Laois - 2 courts - in need of maintenance)
    GAA Club in Cabra ???
    Carrickmacross Emmet Centre (1 court)

    There are many others in hotels around Leinster too I think but having never played in one I have no list of them here.

    PLease add to this list

    Naas Health and Fitness,
    Monread Avenue,
    Naas,
    Co.Kildare.
    3 new glass back courts. They enter teams in the Leinster League both mens & ladies. They also have a very good internal league all year round.
    Coaching for adults and juniors available also Racquet Re-Stringing.
    Very active and friendly club.
