Squash & Racquetball

PLAY WHATEVER THE WEATHER IN OUR COOL COURTS

The Sports Complex features two glass-backed squash courts available for Members to use at their leisure. Air-conditioned and purpose-built, these courts offer the perfect environment in Abu Dhabi for playing Squash or Racquetball.

The squash courts have a viewing area directly outside of the courts where Members can rest between games or watch their friends in action. Alternatively, take advantage of the viewing gallery that overlooks the courts located in the Sports Lounge where you can relax, grab a refreshing drink and cheer on the players.

No equipment? No problem, The Club’s onsite retail store, The Shack, offers a selection of different HEAD squash racquets and equipment for purchase.

The Squash Section provides Members with the opportunity to play Squash or Racquetball socially within the dedicated section of The Club. The Section also offers Members who wish to play more competitively, a monthly Squash ‘Box League’ and a monthly Racquetball ‘Box League’ and also have two teams that compete within the Abu Dhabi Squash League.

The Squash Section welcomes players of all ages and abilities and perhaps the best way to get to play and know other players is to attend the social sessions. *Currently postponed due to Covid-19 preventative measures.

SQUASH SINGLES LADDERS BOX (SSLB)

With this new SSLB issue, we are implementing a ‘box’ format so that players will be challenging those of a similar level.

We have created a new WhatsApp group/Google Sheet so that you can get the contact details of each and all the other players, please contact us for access. As a minimum commitment for this new SSLB, we will be asking for just four matches a month.

SCORING

1. Matches shall be the best of five games, point-a-rally scoring to 11 points.
2. Box league points are awarded as follows:
The Winner: five points for the player who wins three games.
The Loser: one point for playing PLUS one point for each game.
Unfinished: one point to each player PLUS one point for each game won.
Please note if both players agree to a rematch, then this rule does not apply.

BOX/LADDER RULES

Five-person box. This means a commitment of four matches per month.

For Dec 2020 SSLB, we have Div One, Div Two, Div Three and Junior Box.

Two-up, two-down rule. The top two players will move up, and the bottom two will move down. This will ensure a much more dynamic ladder, with a lot of movement and more importantly, more opportunity to play different players every round (monthly).

At the end of every month, please let us know if you’re still in, or out. New boxes will be issued, with the scores reset to zero. Scores are for one-round only and do not carry over. Scores to be emailed to the Squash committee.
