Squash Competition & Coaching.
Booking a Squash Court
The online GPHC booking system enables members to book squash courts at any time that they are not being used for competition, coaching or other organized events. Members may book to play with a non-member guest incurring a guest fee which is payable at the time of booking. Non-members may book courts (other than squash courts 1 & 2) within certain time restrictions which are controlled by the booking system. Fees for non-members are due at the time of booking.
The Club has 4 state of the art squash courts. Court 1 is all glass tournament surface (the only all glass court of its type in the state) and courts 2-4 are competition system courts. All players are asked to adhere to our strict no black soled shoes policy when playing on these courts.
Court usage is free for members (except social members). Court bookings are mandatory for both members and non-members
Cancellation of court booking is to be done no less than 12 hours prior or a cancellation fee may apply
To adjust or cancel your booking access can be made via the link on your confirmation email
Guests of members attract a court fee of $15/hour
Non-members may book a court at certain times for a fee of $30/hour. The online booking system shows the available times
In order to make a booking via the GPHC online system you will need to provide your name and email. Members will also need to provide the number on their membership card (under their name). Your first name will appear on the booking and is visible to the public.
*Please note, squash courts are only available to Grace Park Hawthorn members until restrictions are totally eased*
If the system restricts a booking when you feel it should not, please contact the club by phone or email to see if arrangements can be made.

GPHC is thrilled to have Selena Shaikh as head squash coach. Selena and her team from Shaikhit Training will bring a new level of squash performance to our club. Ultimately, Selena sees squash as a competitive challenge and aims to help players to improve performance as a way to get more enjoyment from the game we all love.

From beginners to our club’s best, I am confident we can help anyone find that little bit extra, mainly because I believe it’s in there anyway and our job is to help players realise what they are capable of.” said Selena.
