"My journey with SMU Squash has been nothing less than amazing. The SMU Squash community provided me with a sense of belonging and a support system that helped me to assimilate into my university life. I always look forward to Friday training with this dynamic bunch!"
- Ong Jun Bao (member), School of Business, Year 1
"I love squash because of the speed and adrenaline. Also, it’s where likeminded people come together and play sports and not to forget the dinner after each squash session!!"
- Jasmine Ong, School of Computing and Information Systems Year 2, Honorary General Secretary
Squash (not the vegetable) is a racket and ball sport typically played by 2 players in a four walled court. Players can expect a fun and intensive workout. Supper is an optional but often included add on to gain back the expended calories.
Coach Alan has been our Squash Coach for 3 years. He is friendly and very approachable. He also has a lot of experience with coaching (Squash Coach for Raffles) and is very detailed in his training programmes. Best part is that he does not just focus on repeating drills, he makes time for us to have fun playing matches as well! Be prepared for a good workout and a fun time of squash drills!
No, join us at our squash clinics to try out the sport this term! We do have a cap on how many official members can join, so that the courts won't be overcrowded. Therefore remember to sign up early :)
*Trials will only be conducted during SUniG Team selections.
Serangoon Gardens Country Club is a bus ride away from Lorong Chuan MRT station. It might not be the most convenient location to travel to, but there are plenty of good food options in the area. It doesn’t hurt that the showers and changing rooms are air conditioned!
