Connacht Leagues Return

Irish Squash are delighted to announce that the Connacht Squash Leagues are making a return in the coming weeks.

This is a crucial step for squash in Connacht as the provincial leagues in Leinster, Munster and Ulster have been a massive success and have provided a wonderful opportunity for players to engage in competitive squash in a social context, achieving the best of both worlds.

This year’s format will feature a Men’s A, Men’s B and Women’s A League and action will take place on the 20th of January in Westport Squash Club, 17th February in Sligo Lawn Tennis Club and 6th April in Galway Lawn Tennis Club.

Recent provincial tournaments in the west have shown that there is a resounding appetite for squash and huge demand for some type of league structure. With some of the finest courts and facilities nationwide based in Connacht, it is only right that the west hosts a provincial league structure.

Building upon the recent news that Squash will be included in the LA28 Olympic Games, the development of this league is a crucial step in the development of the sport across our nation.

Irish Squash CEO, Scott Graham commented;

“I’m delighted to see the Connacht League reestablished, providing a great outlet for people to engage, play, and test themselves against players from a variety of clubs in the region. A huge thank you to Connacht Squash and the many volunteers who have gotten it off the ground and will ensure the league runs smoothly. I would encourage all clubs in the province to consider entering a team, regardless of playing ability, as this is all about enjoyment and camaraderie”.

So far, Galway LTC, Loughrea, Westport and Sligo have all joined the league but there is still time for any other clubs who may want to join. If you have an interest in joining or want to find out more, contact us at

Best of luck to all players playing in these leagues for the rest of the season!
