Welcome to Maties Squash

"It's not how good you are, it's how good you want to be"

To all prospective Maties Squash players and to all our current players - welcome to Maties Squash Club for 2018, a year we hope to be one of our best!

We hope that 2018 will be a big year for our Maties Squash teams and we hope that you will join us for a year filled with fun, hard work and great competition!

The Maties Squash club is situated inbetween the Helshoogte and Sonop residences, just above the LLL house. The club offers 9 courts for use to club members and those who would just like to come and hit the ball a bit.

Our club is filled with many passionate squash players, young and old, who play their best at all times and represent Stellenbosch with a great sense of sportsmanship.

As the Maties Squash Club we aspire to create a diverse, fun and dedicated environment for our players to enjoy their time in the club. With the clubs' support, our league teams are aiming to do even better this year in the Western Province Leagues, as well as in the annual USSA tournament.

Please feel free to browse the website for any additional information you require (or contact our chairperson directly) , as well as following us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest news and reminders about the ongoing of the club!
