Joining a sports society at university is one the best decisions that you will ever make and with squash being declared as the healthiest sports to play in the world by Forbes magazine, this is just one of the many reasons why you should join DMU Squash. We are committed to providing a sterling sporting experience as well as an amazing social atmosphere and with access to great facilities, free coaching and the opportunity to travel abroad, so if you're interested in joining a society and all things tickle your fancy then look no further!
Unlike other sports society’s at De Montfort, we are the only club to offer two training sessions per week an advantage if you're looking to develop the skills you already have or you've never picked up squash racket before. If you've never played squash before and are reluctant to joining because of this, do not fret as we welcome both male and female players of any standard where you will have the opportunity to improve your skills through friendly matches with your fellow squash members during sessions.
In addition to our sessions we also give you the opportunity to compete in BUCS matches competing against other universities around the country, last year was our most successful year and we also introduced our first ever women’s team. Our plans for next year include introducing a second men’s BUCS team and improve our current teams with free spinning sessions and of course winning the league!

If you're worried about how to make your way to the club do not worry as committe and current members will meet at the Student Union Steps to meet those before walking up.
FREE COACHING: During sessions you'll have access to free level 3 coaching from our briliant qualified coach Thomas Fairhurst. Last year we were delighted to have Tom support our club, he recently won the Coach of the Year Award as part of the DMU Sports Award. The club was thrilled to see Tom recive a more than deserved award for all the hard work and effort which he invested to help improve our mens team and develop our first ever womans team for borth BUCS matches and Varsity.
