I see the K Club mentioned as having a court in the first post-is this still the case? Is it open to the public? What does it cost?

Myself and my mate are thinking about starting to play again-he works in Citywest and I work in Naas-where would be handy-Spa Well would probably be the handiest-unless there is somewhere else around Citywest?

Check out www.leinstersquash.ie/clubs.htm for a full list of clubs. There are a few dotted around South Co Dublin.

I play in Sandycove and can recommend it. Not that expensive, easy to get a court, friendly people and players of all standards. Internal leagues and Leinster league teams etc etc. The website is www.sandycovetsc.ie, or give me a shout for more details.

There arent many pay-as-you-play clubs around. Most require you to join up. UCD is the only one im aware of on the south side and thats a bit more expensive if youre not a member.

De La Salle school in Churchtown have a pay as you play option. €12 per hour and the 2 courts are decent but hard to get into. Does anyone know any other pay as you play (non-membership) options in South Dublin?

Anywhere around Dublin City Centre?

Does anyone know of anywhere around Dublin City Centre that you can pay per game? I'd like to play an occassional game with a friend without having to commit to joining a club. He's Northside of the river, I'm Southside so somewhere around town would be ideal. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Just rang silver springs and the girl there told me that I could only play if I was a member or with someone who is a member. Bummer.
The mardyke is always booked out
I've now booked a court in the orchard... So Will try to let ye know what it's like. The guy said it's €10 per game an €1 per person. I don't know what his definition of a game was or how he's going to moniter how many games we play but shur we'll see how it goes i suppose.

There is one in the stephenites gaelic clubhouse, you need the old 50p pieces to work the lights, and if you play regular they will ask you to become a member of the club (gaa club) I think its about €40.
There is also a court in the downhill hotel leisure centre, €10 p/p to use all facilities or you can become a member, don't know the fee.
The best squash set-up is in Killalla, the squash club there are very good, I could not join as I work evenings and nearly all games were scheduled at that time. The league there is good, its in the community centre.

I know its a really really really late response and you probably already know the answer by now but someone else may find the info useful. It's €100 for the year to join St. Finbarrs. If you join later in they year they give you a discount. After that you just have to pay for heat and light which is 50 cents for 10 minutes. If you are not a member you can play 3 times with someone that is a member but I don't keep tabs on who you bring. I have brought a friend who is not a member a few times and nothing has been said.

Hi all,

I'm a 42 year old member of Westwood Leopardstown who used to play a bit of social squash. I fell into a poor lifestyle over the last few years (too many hours in the office, too much food and drink, no excercise etc) and have been working (successfully) to fix that for the past few months by changing my diet, being very selective about when I socialise and getting back into some jogging and cardio work.

I'm now at a stage where I feel like getting back into some social squash at an appropriate level. I haven't played for 3-4 years so am looking for some sort of over 40's squash ladder either before work (7:30am ish) or lunchtimes.

Anybody here know of such a thing in Westwood Leopardstown or be interested in starting one?
