McGill Competitive Squash Club
The McGill Squash Club, also known as the McGill Squash Team, is a student-run, competitive member of the McGill Sports Club Program. Members of the team are student-athletes who wish to play the sport competitively during their university career.

Squash has been played at McGill University for over 100 years and for the greater part of the 20th century up to the present day, the university squash facilities have provided a fantastic platform for both recreational and competitive play.

The McGill Squash Club, also known as the McGill Squash Team, is a student-run, competitive member of the McGill Sports Club Program. Athletes on the team range from highly motivated novices to nationally ranked players. This club/team represents McGill University in both provincial and national tournaments. 

Practice Schedule 

The McGill Squash holds 3 practices per week and expects its players to participate both in competitive matches as well as physical training outside of predetermined practices. 

Competitive Season 

Our competitive season runs from Early October to late January. During this time, we compete in at least four tournaments in the Jesters University Squash League (organized by Squash Ontario). Typically we compete against the following schools: Western University, Queen's University, Brock University, the University of Toronto, the University of Waterloo, McMaster University, Wilfrid Laurier University, University of Ottawa, and University of Guelph. 

At tournaments, each team competes with their top 7 players, which are arranged in order of strength. Players then compete against the same number on the opposing team. 

Furthermore, after the university tournament season is finished for the year, we encourage our players to compete in provincial tournaments hosted and organized by Squash Quebec and other squash organizations. 


Individuals who are interested in joining the McGill Squash Team must be admitted to McGill and be a registered student before joining the team. After becoming a registered member of McGill’s student body, interested students must participate in the team’s tryouts which usually take place in early September. 

Try-Out dates are announced on Instagram (@mcgillsquash) and on Facebook (McGill Squash) prior to the semester starting. Following tryouts, the best players are selected to be part of the McGill Squash Team. 

Unfortunately, we are not able to recruit players on the team in advance. Additionally, McGill Squash has no power and plays no part in the application/admission to the university. There is also no financial support specifically geared towards members of the squash team.
