Squash and Racketball

We have a mission to revitalise squash in the north of the county. The lack of a true squash club in Bedford, ever since the Kimbolton Road club closed down in the late 1990s, has hurt player development at both adult and junior level. We are addressing this by reviving junior and adult coaching in Bedford and creating social and competitive squash opportunities for all our members.

Whether you are a hardened squash veteran, or a newcomer to the sport, we have coaching and playing opportunities for you. We are particularly keen to get more people playing the sport in Bedford, so if you have never tried it, pop down and take a look. It is a superb sport for cardio and overall body conditioning, as well as being a lot of fun.

Playing Facilities

Club Towers offers four heated, block and plaster squash courts, with sprung flooring and toughened glass back walls. There is a viewing area behind the courts for spectators.

Leagues, Tournaments and Team

Club Towers enters teams into the local Bedfordshire squash leagues, and hosts Inter-County squash weekends, bringing top County level squash into the club.

Internal box leagues are also operated, enabling you to play competitive squash at your own standard, and to meet and socialise with other members.

Annual club tournaments are also run during the winter season for adults, senior age groups and juniors.

Court Booking

Club Towers operates an on-line booking system that enables you to book your court quickly and simply using your phone, tablet or PC. Courts are free to book for Racquets & Foundation members and can be reserved seven days in advance.

COACHING PROGRAMMES

ADULT COACHING

Club Towers offers scheduled group coaching sessions for all levels ranging from beginner to good intermediate standard.

When you join our club, you will be invited to have an introductory session with one of our coaches, to assess your playing standard and guide you towards the group sessions and other squash activities that are appropriate to your playing ability. This will ensure that you get the most from your membership.

JUNIOR COACHING

At Club Towers our aim is to drive junior squash participation, introducing youngsters to squash and then helping them to enjoy it and develop their game as quickly as their ability allows.

Squash is a brilliant sport for youngsters. It helps to develop not only ball skills, but also the basic movement skills of agility, balance and coordination that underpin many other sporting activities, and important mental skills such as concentration, self-reliance and perseverance. It is also great for overall junior health and fitness.

We plan to run junior coaching after school and on Saturdays.
