The Westport Team participates in the FairWest Public School League. Only students in grades 6, 7 or 8 at Coleytown or Bedford Middle Schools will be able to join the team. Matches are meant to be enjoyable. The Middle School program is for all levels and some children will be playing for the first time this season. It’s important for everyone to enjoy practice sessions and feel comfortable on the court. When your child is ready to compete, they’re welcome to join the team.


There will be up to three middle school teams – A, B and C. The coaches will create rosters based on skill level. Spaces can be limited at match events. If your child doesn’t get to play we will aim to give them the opportunity next time.


A notification will be sent when the online uniform shop opens. The only required items are the t-shirt and shorts, other items are entirely optional. If you have a uniform from last year that still fits, there is no need to buy a new one. Uniforms must be worn at at all matches.

Referee Tutorial:

Friday, Dec-01, 4:30pm-5:15pm at INTENSITYAll match players are also required to referee. It is, therefore, very important that everyone knows the rules of squash and how to score. All players are recommended to attend this session but especially those in the Intermediate practice group as they are likely to be refereeing matches this season.
