Squash

The Racquet Club has plenty of activities for squash members, including tournaments, clinics, leagues, and drop ins. Our Squash Pro, Melina Turk, offers weekly workshops and periodically brings up guest presenters from the south. 

If you've never tried squash before there are both Ladies' and Men's beginner clinics on Wednesdays through the fall and winter months. Additionally, there will be intermediate drill sessions on Mondays for those who want to hone their skills. Also try out our squash inspired fitness class, Squash HIIT, on Monday evenings, featuring 15 minutes of squash inspired HIIT exercises followed by 15 minutes of squash drills. To register for any of these classes, please visit the front desk at the club.

Friday night all-level Drop In's are a fantastic way to get to know some other players and enjoy some social time in the lounge with our $5 Friday drink special. There is no registration for Drop In play.

We also have our Squash League taking place on Tuesday nights, which is open to players of all levels looking for weekly competitive match play. Additionally, we have our Thirsty Thursday League, which is a more relaxed and social league that features teams of four players, 25 minutes of straight squash, and special drink prices for participants.

Melina, a former PSA world ranked squash player, offers private lessons to help you take your game to the next level. Contact melina@ykracquetclub.com to arrange this.

Court bookings can be made by phone 867.920.2224 or in person.
Squash racquets, eye protection, and towels are available for rental. White or clear non-marking soled shoes must be worn on the courts.
