SQUASH

Houtrust lives and breathes squash. With 17 professional courts across two storeys, there is always room for you to get a game of squash in one of the biggest squash clubs in the Netherlands. The courts all have LED lighting, and the floors and walls are carefully maintained.

 Houtrust has a ladder competition, has several ladies and men’s teams that participate in the competition, and offers squash lessons to juniors and seniors.

 In a nutshell, if squash is your sport, call in on Houtrust. It’s the place to be in The Hague when it comes to squash.

 You can make a reservation online, at the reception desk or by calling 070 3635169.

Premier Division

Houtrust Squash has been playing in the Premier Division since the 2020/2021 season. The women’s as well as the men’s team. Unfortunately, corona has put a spanner in the works for this season, but for the coming season we will be aiming to take the country by storm with two strong teams. The Houtrust Squash teams are made up of a mix of national and international top players. We aim for the very top. To achieve this goal, we are constantly searching for companies or people who would like to support us. WoonCompany has been our main sponsor for two seasons already. Thanks to them, the start of our success was possible. Would you also like to be involved in making our goal a reality? Sponsoring the Premier League can cost as little as € 225.00 per season.

Please contact Erwin van Voorthuizen about the possibilities. We will consider all the options with you. (06-28774578)

Team Competition

Houtrust has two women’s and ten men’s teams in the Dutch Squash Bond competition – twelve teams in total!

The matches take place on Friday evenings, starting at 20.00 (the Premier Division is on Wednesday evenings). Not in the team yet? Come and watch to see how much fun it is to play as part of such a close-knit team.

The results and league positions of our teams can be seen on our Facebook-page and on this page from the Dutch Squash Bond site. Would you also like to play in a competition? There are about seven players to each team, with four players needed for each match in the competition. So, you alternate for the eighteen away and eighteen home matches. The competition season is from mid-September until mid-April, but you can join mid-season. Women are especially welcome to strengthen our two women’s teams. Sign up with one of the Houtrust team members and they will get you on your way.

Ladder competition

With more than 100 participants, the Houtrust Ladder Competition is the way to get to know other squash players. You play at least one match every two weeks. That will be against someone under you in the ladder who challenges you, or you can challenge someone above you in the ladder and play them. Working on your level of squash was never so easy!

Sign up here for the Houtrust Squash Ladder, where you will find more information. Need more help? The Houtrust team will be glad to answer any questions.

Soccersquash

If you fancy doing something a little different, then SoccerSquash is for you. The combination of squash and football is quite spectacular. Playing SoccerSquash puts your ball control, technique, shooting technique, fitness and speed to the test.

SoccerSquash in a nutshell

SoccerSquash is a combination of squash and football and it is played with a special SoccerSquash ball on a regular squash court. The idea is that you kick the ball against the wall so that it bounces back in such a way that makes it difficult for your partner to return it. The ball is allowed to bounce only once and you are allowed to touch it no more than three times. Your opponent gets a point if the ball bounces more than once or if you touch it more than three times. Also, if the ball touches your arms or hands, your opponent gets a point. The full set of rules is available at our reception desk.

Fancy trying it?
Squash courts 12 and 13 have been set up especially for you to practise your SoccerSquash techniques.

You can book a court by calling 070 3635169.
You can also rent a SoccerSquash ball from us.

Shop

In our shop we have squash racquets in all price ranges and from several different brands: Tecnifibre, PS-Wear, Saxon, Salming and Karakal. So, every kind of player will be able to find the right racquet. Go ahead and first try a racquet out on the squash court. That’s the only way to find out if you have made the right choice, so you can enjoy your game even more.

You will find a great selection of women and men’s clothes and shoes by Tecnifibre, PS-Wear, Salming and Karakal. And to complete your outfit, we have a wide range of accessories: bags, grips, balls and protective eyewear. Everything you need for on the squash court! And if the tension on your racquet needs adjusting, you can use our racquet stringing service. So, you can’t blame your outfit or gear…
