Squash has previously been voted by Forbes Magazine as the "World's Healthiest Sport" which is something we're very proud of at the Royal Glenora Club! The sport is regularly touted in many health magazines as being one of the top five sports in the world for burning calories and is often referred to by many as "physical chess." Squash is the only racquet sport in the Club that has the extra dimension of having to look 360 degrees around you, as the back wall is a part of the game, so it engages all your senses and brings your peripheral vision into sharp focus!

For more information on anything to do with Squash here at the RGC, please visit the squash office (located in the Squash Area between the doubles court and court 7) or reach out Pete Goodings, our Head Squash Professional and Manager, at pete.goodings@royalglenora.com.

The Royal Glenora Club is proud to be a registered Club of Squash Alberta

“For me Squash is the epitome of both a physical and mental battle in sport. There’s nowhere to hide on a squash court and it’s unique compared to many other racquet sports as there’s no net to separate you from your opponent. Every time I step on court I feel like I learn something new about the game and I never stop wanting to pass this learning on to others. I also like to have as much fun out there as I can and often try to achieve ‘impossible’ shots!”

"I've grown up around the courts and learned to love each facet of the game. Having caught the bug early on, squash morphed from just another sport to play into a full-on lifestyle. My main focus now is on the technical side, striving for efficiency with my swing and movement. Whether it be coaching or playing I try to push a smooth, stylish, and always fun form of squash."
