Team matches
We have two teams in the winter squash leagues, the Mixed First team and a Vets team. The matches are colour coordinated on the booking system on Thursday evenings. Please come and support, it is always good to get a crowd watching and some of the games are (arguably) very entertaining.

30/04/20 – Darwin Northwood

Darts Match

England Squash Membership
Part of your membership fee is to pay for your England Squash membership which give you various benefits including medical insurance against injuries while playing squash. Please take the time to register. It is definitely worth it!

Club maintenance and Cleanliness
The general manager and her team are keen to keep the ground and facilities working and looking fantastic.
If you ever see anything that needs fixing from the toilets, showers, court heating, a floor board to a light or a clock not working please email: maintenance@thewalkerground.co.uk if you see people playing in dirty or marking shoes please advise them to stop or point this out to the office.

If you see anyone altering the heating controls on courts please report this as firstly this messes up the system and secondly ends up with a waste of gas and electricity.

The Walker Ground Trust
If you love the ground and have some spare time we are looking for more trustees to help oversee the running of the ground for the future.
If you would like to help please make contact with the Chair of the Trust – Alan May
