About Us

The Club

Based within the grounds of Ceddesfeld Hall in Sedgefield, easily accessible to other local villages and towns in South East Durham area. This long established club has 2 well maintained courts, and is currently planning a 3rd court.

We have successful and active mens, ladies and junior sections and have a range of competitive leagues both internally and playing against other local clubs in the Durham & Cleveland Squash Rackets Association.

The club is a section of the Sedgefield Community Association and members have access to the bar and facilities at Ceddesfeld Hall.

Social

Sedgefield Squash Club is a small friendly club, and various social events are held throughout the year. The annual presentation evening, held after finals night always has a great family atmosphere, where trophies are awarded along with the now traditional "DATFAs", which recognise members achievements or mishaps away from the squash court! The club is affiliated to Sedgefield Community Association, and members can enjoy a post-game drink at the Ceddesfeld Hall bar - next door to the squash club.
