Squash Ladder  

The U of W squash ladder is open to any member of the Duckworth Centre. The ladder consists of players of all levels of skill and interest. New and experienced players will find levels of play that suit their interest and skill level.

Players compete in rounds of play with 5-6 players over four weeks, at the end players move up and down the ladder depending on their wins and losses. A season of the squash ladder typically consists of six or seven rounds of play.

Included in Club Fee:

  • Three or four squash and pizza free-for-all's over the season
  • The Val and Iain McDougall Cup Tournament (only open to ladder players)

Squash is an exciting and exhilarating game, the ladder is a great way to improve your game, have fun and meet other players.
