Welcome to DMU Squash!
DMU squash team consistently attracts a loyal following and continually grow and improve year on year!
Joining a sports society at university is one the best decisions 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, the opportunity to travel abroad, and take part in many charity events. So if you're interested in joining a society and all things tickle your fancy then look no further!
We offer three training sessions per week, an advantage if you're looking to develop the skills you already have. 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. We have 2 men’s teams and 1 women’s team.
Last year our Women’s Team won their BUCS League. The year before this, our Men’s 1st Team also won their BUCS league and the Conference Cup!
To keep fit outside of training sessions, we offer spinning sessions at QE2 open for all members of squash. Furthermore, there are strength and conditioning sessions available for extra fitness.
Our training sessions are held on Wednesdays at 1:30pm and Saturdays at 2:30pm at the Leicester Squash Club. We also have extra training sessions on Mondays for those on one of our 3 BUCS teams.
If you're worried about how to make your way to the club, don’t be, as we all meet at the Student Union Steps before walking up.
Socials take place on Wednesday nights, starting promptly at 7:30pm at The Bowling Green, just opposite campus.
We go to a few bars before ending the night in the SU!
Socials are a great way to get to know all members of our society in a fun and friendly environment.
As a member of DMU Squash you will have the to opportunity to travel with us abroad for the best four days of your life. Past tours include visits to Spain, Croatia and Italy.
One of your highlights of joining squash will definitely be the different events which you have the opportunity to attend all through the year. These include any charity fundraisers, varsity, awards nights, and old boys events where past members of squash come back to Leicester for the weekend.
