Learn, play or compete on court

Squash is a great sport for both beginners and elite athletes as no matter what level you’re playing at, it is guaranteed to raise your heart rate and improve agility in a fun and social setting.

Sport & Fitness has a huge range of squash and racketball opportunities suited to all ages and abilities including: introductory coaching courses, social sessions, recreational and competitive leagues and events.

Our six brand new glass back squash courts have been designed to a world-class specification. Three of them are show courts with 200 spectator seats. They also have the ability to be converted into two international standard doubles courts.

Sport & Fitness will be the home ground for the Birmingham Lions Premier Squash League team, so you will also be able to watch international level squash here!
