Climbing the ladder
Whether you boast, drive or drop we’ll serve a warm welcome
We encourage young players to join local civilian clubs, run unit squash ladders and enter the Royal Signals Squash Championship with a view of enhancing the Corps team from both our regular and reserves cohort. In addition the Corps organises a squash camp for developmental players and enhancing fledgling talent.
In addition to Unit/Stations Squash Ladders, there are a number of options open to players including Royal Signals Inter-Unit Competitions and the opportunity to gain skills and/or coaching qualifications. Do get in touch using the form below. Additional information is found at www.armysquash.org
The Royal Signals Open Squash Championship 2016 was held at Aldershot Garrison Sports Centre on 9-10 November 2016. Twenty-seven Squash players competed from 2 Sig Regt, 10 Sig Regt, 11 Sig Regt, 14 Sig Regt (EW), 18 (UKSF), 30 Sig Regt, 32 Sig Regt, 15 Sig Regt, ISS and Army HQ.
