Find your play
The grassroots squash scene in and around Manchester is thriving and it’s not difficult to see why. Squash is a fantastic way to keep fit and burn calories as it’s an intense workout that tests skill and fitness levels in equal measure. The sport is always played indoors and that means locals in Manchester can book a court throughout the year, whatever the weather. Squash is superb to play with colleagues or friends for single games or if you’re after a regular game, then sign-up to a squash league that are often run internally by the clubs. Viewing galleries make squash a fun sport to watch too. Rackets and squash balls can often be hired at a good number of clubs.
