The club has a range of competitions for all standards.
The Summer Grand Prix – A unique, social competition for both new players and old hands alike that gives everyone the chance to meet other members. Approximately 12 teams of four players compete against each other throughout May – August. The teams are mixed ability with stronger players playing at number one in the team and the newer players at number four.
Mini-Leagues – A popular competition running throughout the year. You just join the league at the level that suits you and play the other players over a five to six week period. If you win then you go up to a higher league.
Club Handicap – A cup knockout that divides into the main competition and a ‘Plate’ competition after the first round. All entrants are given a handicap so you have a chance of winning against a better player… or losing against a weaker player!
Club Championship – It’s the same structure as the handicap except you play everyone off level to find out who is the club No 1. We usually run separate men’s and women’s championships.
Racquetball League – The same structure as the Mini-Leagues but for those players who prefer a larger ball and a smaller racquet!
Veteran’s Competition – Held annually between Christmas and the New Year, this is possibly the most gruelling competition of them all! It’s handicapped and takes place over one day, with a league qualifier and then a knockout. So you can end up playing quite a few games if a lot of people turn up.
And as well as the club competitions we also enter Old Crocs’ mens & ladies teams in the Kirklees Calderdale Squash & Racquetball League.
