Box League

This is a program where you register online and are placed into a box with four other individuals. You organize your matches at the convenience of both players over a four week period. This league runs all year round. However, the sessions during the spring and summer run more than four weeks.

Women’s Evenings

Women’s evenings are fun social events, typically with a theme and charitable event. We play squash from 6–8pm, and then head up to the lounge afterward for food, drinks, and lots of laughs. It is open to the first 24 players who enrol on Game Time. Every level welcome. Jonathan or one of the squash professionals will be on hand to organize round-robin play.

As well, a free rules clinic is available to all World Health Members once per season in November. If you require further details, please contact Jonathan Hill or Camren Fishenden.

Tournament Schedule

We offer a variety of tournaments throughout the squash season. They include in-house tournaments, junior tournaments, provincial and national tournaments. Our most popular tournament is the Annual World Health Club Championships which usually happen in March or April. This gives you an opportunity to play members of your own level and to attend the Annual Awards Dinner and Party.

Thursday Night Team League

Our most popular league; the Thursday night team league runs in eight-week cycles from September to April, and each cycle is restricted to the first 64 players that register. Teams are made up of four players; men and women.
All team matches begin at 6:45pm. On the final night of each cycle, there will be playoffs as well as a meal and beverages in the restaurant.

Cost: $35 + GST (includes prizes,
dinner, and a beverage)

This league has various start times from September through April.

Interclub

Interclub is played on Tuesday nights. Players are placed on a team of six people from September through April. Teams play every second Tuesday. For home games, some teams will start at 6:45pm and others will start at 8:15pm.
World Health has the following levels: Women’s 1–5, Men’s 1–13

If you have missed the sign-up deadline, or can’t fully commit, there are many opportunities to be involved by signing up as a sub.

British Racquetball

This is a very popular game in the UK and is spreading worldwide — played by all levels of players.

British racquetball is very similar to squash but is played with a slightly larger racquet and a bigger, bouncier ball, making it easy to get a rally going. This ensures a good workout for both players. The rules for both squash and racquetball are identical, except for the serve. You must bounce the ball and are allowed to hit under the service line.

Junior Squash Program

Register in the binder at the beginning of August and on-going for the rest of the year through Jonathan. Our junior programs are designed to accommodate players of all levels and ages. There are many progressions to these programs, so players might be moved throughout the year. If you need help in deciding which program works for you, contact Jonathan Hill. The junior program runs from September through June.
