Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced squash player, our courts and membership are the place to be. The squash courts at Exeter Golf and Country Club have been described as some of the best in the South West by England Squash and Racketball, three of which are glass backed. Squash is a social sport that keeps your fitness levels high, burning more calories than any other sport, using all your major muscle groups and promotes a high level of flexibility.
There is group and individual coaching available with one of the country’s top squash coaches, Mike Harris. From a social point of view, there are lots of friendly tournaments, but if you want to compete or improve then you can take up coaching with our team of highly qualified and experienced coaches or join the ladders and compete on a wider scale.
Racketball is the fastest growing racket sport in the country as it’s similar to squash but is simpler to play and easier on the body. Racketball and squash are available for all our Racket Members to play, along with tennis, and is actually very popular with tennis players on rainier days!
Whether you are new to squash or already play at competitive level, you’ll receive a warm welcome by our friendly players. There is a real sense of camaraderie amongst the squash players at Exeter Golf and Country Club, with regular club nights, friendly tournaments, get-togethers in the bar and dinner events.
