Health and Safety


Safety on court

Squash and racketball are competitive sports and the physical nature presents a risk of injury. One of the roles of the sport’s governing body, England Squash (ES), is to promote safe play and publicise safety guidelines for their sport to help players minimise the risk involved in participation.

All England Squash guidelines to safe squash can be found here.

If you have never played squash or racketball (Squash 57) before, we strongly recommend that you have a number of lessons from a qualified coach before playing competitively.  The coach will be able to tailor the lessons to your fitness capabilities and ensure you know the basic rules of the game and have adequate fitness to participate before competing.

Clements Squash Club is firmly committed to creating and maintaining a safe and positive environment for all of its members. We accept our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all young people and protect them from poor practice, abuse and bullying. We adhere to ES Safeguarding and Protecting Young People in Squash Policy, Procedures and Guidelines.

We also recognise that every player has a responsibility to understand the rules of safe play , which is why we complete regular risk assessments and have set out Guidelines for Safety on court.
