England Squash uses the term Squash57 but most players still favour the original name.

RACKETBALL in Cheshire

Check out the Merseyside and Cheshire league. Does your club have a team or teams that want to join?


Racketball is the fastest growing UK sport.  Played on a squash court, with similar rules, it has been described as an easy game to learn but difficult to master.  The larger bouncy ball warms up quickly and withstands colder conditions well, making for lower intensity games of slower pace and longer rallies.  It is ideal for all ages. Singles or doubles.

Inter-club racquetball leagues

There are two club leagues running in Cheshire.  Teams are composed of either 3-5 players of either sex.  East and Mid Cheshire clubs wishing to enter should contact Geoff Walton 07787534288 geoffw2362@hotmail.com. West Cheshire clubs wishing to enter should contact Lee Walton 07990823583 lee.walton3@live.co.uk
