Stafford Squash Centre and Stafford Squash Club together deliver an exceptional squash experience in Brisbane.
Stafford squash Centre
The centre maintain and operate 6x of the best squash courts in Brisbane. Family owned and operate since 1969, now owned by Fred Robins, and operated By Janette Fry and Kylie Pearson, the team take great pride in the centre and the service they provide.
The centre is the most technically advanced in Brisbane with a show court with in built high definition video camera. This can record and broadcast live match play, to extend viewing to more players. During events, spectators can even watch live matches, outside enjoying a beer and a steak sandwich.
The courts are extremely well maintained and play very true. The centre and changing facilities are kept clean, establishing the standard for all Brisbane squash centres.
The centre team organise all court bookings over phone, email and even Facebook. They organise equipment hire and operate a small centre shop selling racquets, shoes, grips and other equipment as well as drinks and nibblies.
Stafford Squash Club
Stafford Squash Club is one of few remaining clubs with a management committee elected directly by member players. They put the interest of the players first. The club builds on the strong platform that the centre environment delivers.
The squash club consists of a committee, volunteers and its members to operate arguably the largest and most successful squash clubs in Brisbane, if not Australia.
The club organises the competition teams and represent the teams at grading. The members then operate the raffle, bar and food service on competition nights. Teams are allocated one or two nights a season, on a rotation basis, to run the service that evening from Court 4. Thursdays see the club room frequented, often to the early hours.
The club is responsible for organising many tournaments each year. This includes the marketing and advertising, organisation, and services on the day, such as BBQ and cold drinks. Some of the common events organised each year are:
- Famous 4PLAY Doubles
- Stafford Closed
- Annual Christmas party by the pool
- and many many more…
The club is also responsible for the development and maintenance of the website.
