We’re serious about squash. We love a good, close contest. But we’re also serious about enjoying ourselves and helping each other to improve.
We play three nights a week — at Kyneton (Mondays and Thursdays) and at Romsey (Tuesdays) — so there are plenty of opportunities to get on the court. You can go head-to-head in competition or have a social hit. And our coach, Alex, will help you develop your game.
No matter what age you are or whether you’ve played before, we’re here for you.
Come for a game?

“It’s a relaxed club, and you get the opportunity to improve through playing people at your level and better. A designated practice night is good, too. It’s also a good social club.”
“Lovely bunch of people, who all help each other become better players. Very relaxed and easygoing when it comes to fill-ins and non-attendance.”
“My squash has improved a lot and you get to meet people from a range of backgrounds and walks of life.”
The story of Macedon Ranges Squash Club
Squash in Kyneton was originally played at the back of a service station at the corner of Wedge St and Piper St.
1970s — The original court was replaced by three new courts at the recreation stadium.
1981 — Kyneton Ladies’ Squash Club and Kyneton Men’s Squash Club amalgamated to become Kyneton Squash Club. Both clubs had strong memberships.
1980s — In an effort to promote squash on a regional basis, the Kyneton club created an inter-club competition known as the Challenge Cup. The competition ran for several years and involved teams from Romsey, Woodend, Daylesford, Castlemaine and Maryborough.
1990s — The club continued to be a very social, family-orientated club with two weekly competitions.
2000s — Macedon Ranges Shire Council decided to construct the Kyneton Sports and Aquatic Centre. While the centre was being built, the club relocated its competitions to Romsey.
It was at this time that the club changed its name from Kyneton Squash Club to Macedon Ranges Squash Club.
2011 — The new sports centre in Kyneton opened. Macedon Ranges Squash Club celebrated its return with an exhibition match featuring five-time world champion and Commonwealth Games gold medallist Sarah Fitz-Gerald.
