About the club, in their own words: Abertillery Squash Club (previously known as Blaenau Gwent Squash Club) currently play out of Abertillery Sports Centre. Our Club is friendly and new members are very welcome. We have at our Club players of varying age and standard, and from complete beginner to experienced county league veteran. It does not matter how old you are or what playing experience you have – we have something at our Club to help you enjoy this sport.
We run a Club night every Friday starting at 7:00pm where non-members both men, ladies and juniors are welcome to try out the club before making a decision to join. The club has a welcoming and friendly attitude towards all players and visitors alike. Players of all standards can join in and we will arrange a suitable opponent of a similar standard for you to play. Quite often we also arrange further times during the week and weekend, depending upon demand.
Regardless of your playing standard, the club has members to play, and if required coaching to help you to an even higher standard.
Whilst playing for fun and exercise, we also participate in Team Squash in the Gwent County Squash Leagues, as well as regular Friendly matches during the off season while some members also compete in various Competitions open to club players and organised by South Wales Squash and affiliated Clubs.
The club does not currently have an internal league system, but with increasing membership this is under consideration.
Whilst Squash Singles is the main activity, we do occasionally play Squash Doubles, and Racketball Singles can also be played using a larger softer ball.
We also like to be as social as possible and try to arrange as many nights out as possible of varying activities as long as there’s a ‘couple’ of drinks available.
Please feel free to make contact with Alexander or come along to a club night and speak to a member if you would like to discuss joining. Please remember that we are Abertillery Squash Club, because other clubs may also be using the centre on other days.
