Enjoy excellent coaching and many opportunities to compete.

Smash it up with our successful squash club.

The squash club is one of the University’s most successful clubs in recent times. 

Overseen by Head of Racquet Sports and ex-professional squash player Liam Gutcher the sport has taken a total transformation under his leadership. With a junior academy in place as well as our PSL Squash team that is partnered up with the Northumberland Squash and Tennis Club the sport is going from strength to strength at Newcastle.

There are 4 men’s teams and 2 women’s teams that compete in BUCS as well as regionally in the local leagues with Newcastle. 

Squash is part of the University’s Racquet Sports Programme with the aim to be one of the country’s top centres of excellence for racquet sports.
