Alford Squash Club was formed in 1978 by a group of committed and enthusiastic local volunteers who originally made plans for the building of the courts to be located at the rear of the Windmill Hotel as a private enterprise. However the eventual outcome was for the building of the courts in the present location at the rear of the local Cooperative Store on the East side of Alford, off Millers Way (see map below for directions), thanks to a lease of land from the East Lindsey District Council. Much hard work, research and fund raising took place in order to establish the club and today the club is run with the same spirit and attitudes in mind, as a committee of dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers steer our local squash club forward in every way possible.
In recent years the club has seen a large increase in its Junior and Youth development with the participation of many students from the two local secondary schools, John Spendluffe Technology College and Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar Selective Academy. As a result we now have the means to provide more coaching and lessons, both for junior and adult members at the club.
Alford Squash Club members can play within the Club’s league and its other local competitions or simply for leisure, including occasional games with non-members. Additionally, details can be provided of Lincolnshire County Squash Leagues. Whether you are looking to keep fit, maintain a healthy lifestyle, succeed at a high level or simply get out of the office or workplace for some fresh air and exercise, Alford Squash Club has it all for you.
The Club’s facilities have recently been upgraded (2016) with new state-of-the-art LED court lighting and a complete revamp of the men’s showers.
