fitness: squash


The Club has long been a center of squash in Japan and its three state-of-the-art courts continue to draw experienced players and novices alike.

There are opportunities to learn the basics of squash from a pro, fine-tune your game with a hitting partner, play competitively in the league or ladder, or try your hand at Squash 57, a format that features a bigger ball and shorter rackets (available for free from the Recreation Desk).

Regular events include social evenings, tournaments and the TAC Premier Classic, an annual Japan Squash Association-sanctioned, three-day competition.

T-shirts, shorts and socks are available for rent for no cost. Rental rackets (¥550), squash shoes, goggles, balls and stringing facilities are available at the Recreation Desk.

Hone your racket skills or learn the basics of the game with one of the Club professionals.
