Looking for indoor pandemic-friendly exercise?

The Highlands Squash Club is the perfect place to get some exercise, with others in your immediate family or bubble. In an effort to support members of the community who wish to get Covid-safe, indoor exercise during the cold and slippery winter days ahead the club is offering a six-month trial family membership for $250. This membership covers anyone living in the same residence.

The membership also entitles the members to unlimited use of the courts, at any time of the day or night, through the use of a personal access code. Simple pandemic-friendly procedures are in place to protect the members. The building is a two-court facility with a small number of users and limited facilities. As such you are unlikely to encounter others in the building at the same time. Members are asked to clean the few high contact surfaces before, and after playing.
“Squash is appropriate for any age and is easy to learn,” says Don Gage. “What a great way to get the young ones, not to mention the adults, away from their computer games.”

Anyone who is feeling the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic, or anything else for that matter, will find that squash is an excellent stress reliever.
Squash is considered to be an excellent form of cardiovascular exercise as well as a means of improving coordination, strength and agility. The competitive nature of the game keeps you motivated and eager to return.
Under normal circumstances the club offers open houses for new members to learn the game from the more experienced members. In our COVID-19 world there will be a need to pre-arrange private coaching from an experienced player. The coach can safely provide guidance from the observation level of the court on the second level of the building. This far exceeds the two-metre distance required for COVID-19 safety.

The Squash Club is a little known recreational gem located in Haliburton Village beside the arena and across from the skateboard park. For membership information contact Dave Howe at info@mysquash.ca.
