Squash & Racketball

Access to the Squash courts is included with an ActiveLife membership and gives you the opportunity to book up to 14 days in advance. The Centre's unique squash and racketball facilities are something to be proud of. The glass-backed courts have retractable walls allowing courts to be widened to create either three single courts, two double courts or one multi-functional activity space.


£4.40 per person
