Squash Courts

How to book a squash time:

  2. Bookings will be for one hour only with 30 minutes in between available times to allow for cleaning and disinfecting in between usage.
  3. It is highly recommended that players bring their own equipment including balls if possible. Panther Central will provide racquets and squash balls for use and will disinfect thoroughly after each use.
  4. Players must come prepared to play. Locker rooms are only available for showering following your booking.
  5. Players will be required to disinfect all high-touch areas including door knobs and walls they touch as best as they can (floor cleaning will be performed by the custodial staff). Disinfectant spray and paper towel/cloths will be available at the Panther Central desk. Disinfectant must be sprayed on the paper towel/cloth to wipe high-touch areas. Do not spray the surfaces directly as this will create an aerosol.
