New squash courts have arrived at Ironmonger row baths

Two new squash courts have now been opened at Ironmonger Row Baths, these courts are now bookable online and directly within the ironmonger row baths leisure centre, with the popularity of the sport increasing we believed this would be a fantastic addition to our facility for both our members and the local community, we are also running women only squash sessions on a Monday between 5.20pm until 6.30pm at a cost of £3 per session. These are also bookable sessions.
Hope to see you in the new courts soon.
