Mixed Summer competition (pennant) starts 26 November 2018
Summer pennant is a very relaxed mixed grade competition and is easily the most social with most players wanting to stay fit over this period. The ball is extra bouncy, great for beginners and testing for the experienced. Teams may consist of a combination of A, A Reserve and B Grade players. This is a great opportunity to learn from the more experienced players.
Pennant will run on Mondays and Wednesdays. As last year was so successful, we anticipate running Tuesday and Thursday nights with the possibility of Friday nights again.
Summer pennant nights are weeks starting: 26th Nov, 3rd, 10th, 17th Dec 2018, 7th, 14th, 21st Jan 2019.
No finals are played. The top team of each night after the 7 rounds will claim bragging rights.
$12 per night

Squash for all levels - What's yours?
I've been a member of the club before
So much has changed around the Club in recent times and you'll love seeing all the new and old players having a ball, the social club has re-formed and theres plenty of action at the courts most nights of the week. Why not pop back in for a hit over the summer and see for yourself.
I've never played squash
Come and play our casual Wednesday night round robin for beginners to see if you're up for the challenge, the first night is free and we've got a coach on hand to get you into the game.
If you've played Tennis, Badminton or other racket sports you'll likely feel comfortable swinging the racket and be playing competitive squash in no time at all.
I've played before but it's been a while
If you're new to Bendigo Squash Club then you'll want to drop us a line to organise a hit, that way we can asses your ability and get you started on the appropriate competition night. Our beginners round robin on Wednesday night (from 7 pm) and club practice on Sunday (at 6 pm) are great options to get back into it and see where you're at.
