Squash

The Racquet Club has four international squash courts and boasts the largest number of squash players in the North. We have a full-time Squash Pro, Jeff Hipfner, who organizes all of our squash activities and offers lessons to all levels of squash players.

Squash Bubbles

We are able to play regular squash games at the Racquet Club if you are a member of "squash bubble". A squash bubble is comprised of a maximum of 5 people. All bubbles must be registered with the Racquet Club. You can find a form for registering your bubble here: https://ykracquetclub.com/sites/default/files/Squash%20Bubble%20Agreemen.... When you register your bubble, each member must sign a waiver of consent and an inital symtomes questionnaire and self-isolation screening.

Once a week, players must check in with staff to confirm that your health or travel situation has not changed. Please fill out the form here: https://ykracquetclub.com/squash/covid-19-self-screening
