Welcome To Lilleshall Squash & Racketball Club, based within the picturesque grounds of The Lilleshall National Sports Centre in Telford, Shropshire.
Formerly the country retreat and hunting lodge for the Duke of Sutherland, Lilleshall Hall, idyllically set in over 100 acres of gardens and grounds overlooking the beautiful Shropshire countryside, now commands an unrivalled position as the foremost venue for squash, as well as many other sports within Newport, Telford and it's surrounding areas.
Lilleshall Squash & Racketball Club has been established for many years, with a sizeable membership base of men, women and juniors, who contribute to a number of competitive amateur level leagues, tournaments and social games.
Located within Queen's Hall (the squash area of Lilleshall National Sports Centre) are three hard back courts and two glass back courts which provide the perfect facilities to enjoy the game of squash.
There is also a well-stocked bar to relax in after a hard game on the courts, which provides a wonderful place to socialise.
So if you want to get in to squash, whether you are an experienced player or a newcomer to the game, come along and visit us or join Lilleshall Squash & Racketball Club today.

It is with deep regret that we inform of the death of John Perry. John passed away, suddenly, on Monday 16th December. Those who came in contact with John have memories of a very sociable, friendly & considerate gentleman, someone with whom it was easy to be a friend. John was a lovely person to know and spend time with.
2013 INDIVIDUAL TOURNAMENTS (PHASE 2) COMMENCE
Phase two comprises the Dave Fox, Robson and Veterans competitions. These are well subscribed and will hopefully be competitive and fun to be involved in.
As per earlier competitions, any matches not completed by the published dates will result in the players being eliminated from the relevant competition. This is designed to be fair to all competition players who do play their matches on time.
The rules and draw sheets, courtesy of Paul Evans, can be found at our Individual Tournaments page.
LILLESHALL GRADED OPEN 2013 - THE STORY
The Lilleshall Sports Centre hosted its inaugural Open squash (graded) competition a couple of weekends ago organised by Sam Hodgkins. It was well attended by both players and spectators with some enjoyable and competitive matches.
A number of Lilleshall Squash club members took part and appeared to really enjoy the atmosphere and quickly got stuck in to some closely fought matches.
Sam has provided a write up of the weekend with some photos.
