STEP 1 – Basic Squash Lessons
STEP 2 – Social Ladders
STEP 3 – Knockdown Ladders
STEP 4 – Interclub Team Squash
STEP 5 – Tournaments

Racquet Network has programs in place to help players take all five of the steps above. Players meet other players at their level at every step along the way. Some players become friends. Some become rivals. Either way, players in our programs often tell us that they are playing squash more often and at a higher level than at any other point in their lives.

STEP 1 – Basic Squash Lessons

Racquet Network offers squash lessons at the Acadia Recreation Complex in southeast Calgary, just east of Deerfoot Trail. Players begin with Level 1 and graduate to Level 2. Once they have completed both sets of lessons, they are ready to join Squash Calgary.

STEP 2 – Social Ladders

Squash Calgary’s social ladder has been operating year round since June 2004. The purpose of a social ladder is to give players opportunities to find players at their level. Players rise to the top of social ladders by being social and by having played matches against three or more players in a 30 day span. The higher a player is ranked, the more social they are considered to be. New players are encouraged to get started on a social ladder in order to begin building a personal network of squash contacts, which is an essential step toward becoming a frequent player.

STEP 3 – Knockdown Ladders

Once players have some experience playing squash on our social ladders, they are ready to start competing with other players on our Knockdown Ladders. Squash Calgary offers three kinds of knockdown ladders: men, women and co-ed.

STEP 4 – Interclub Sqaush Teams

With more than 1000 players, the Calgary Interclub Squash League is one of the largest urban squash leagues in the world. Players on teams in this league play against players from other clubs across Calgary. Every season, Squash Calgary enters two or more teams in this league.

STEP 5 – Tournaments

All squash players who have completed STEP 4 and played in the CISL will be ranked members of Squash Alberta. As such, they will be able to participate in both Racquet Network squash tournaments as well as ALL of the biggest squash tournaments in Alberta. From here, top-ranked players are able to move into competition at the national and international level.
