Joining process: Click the link above and complete the quick online form. You will be sent an invoice for your membership fees. Once this has been paid, you will receive an email from the membership secretary with all the information you need.
Prospective members: If you’re thinking about joining and would like more info, someone from the club would be happy to speak to you and/or show you around the courts. Contact us today via email.
Membership year: The membership year runs from 1st August to 31st July the following year. Members joining during the year will be invoiced pro-rata for the remaining year until July 31st.
Access to the courts: The club is located on the Dartington Estate. See the contact page for directions. There is a number combination lock to gain access. The code is given to you when you have paid your membership. The code is reset at the start of the membership year.
Parking: The Dartington Estate has paid parking before 6pm. Before 6pm parking costs £1 per hour. If you play regularly, consider a Dartington membership with parking permit, which gives you parking at the estate and a whole range of other discounts for £55 per year.
Court fees: Dartington has extremely affordable court fees. You just pay for the lights (and heaters) using a meter. The charge is currently 20p per 15 minutes, or £1 for an hour.
Court bookings: As a small and friendly club, we have an honesty policy for court usage and don’t have a formal booking system. If there are people waiting to use the courts, please be considerate and give way after 3 games or 30 minutes. The only exceptions are that, if you are playing a box league match, you may finish this before giving way. Don’t put more than 30 minutes in the lights at any one time in case you need to give way.
Pre-booked events: There are also a few pre-arranged events which take priority of the courts, such as coaching sessions, club nights, tournaments, and team training sessions. Check the website or at the courts for the times of these.
Internal leagues: The club has active squash and racketball box leagues, open to all members. This is a fantastic way to play new people, get to know other club members, and improve your squash. See the notice board at the club for details on how to join.
