Franklin hosts the Club Championship Tournament in racquetball (singles and doubles) and in squash (singles and doubles) annually. Winners of each division are posted on plaques displayed in the club. Trophies are awarded for first and second place in each division.
There has been a renewed interest in having kids participate in racquetball and squash classes. Greg Lewerenz, our Program Director and Professional, will organize activities in racquetball and/or squash for kids throughout the school year. Children, ages 8 and up, are eligible to participate. Greg will meet with interested participants after school or during the summer.
Franklin hosts informal challenge courts. Typically, Tuesday and Friday mornings from 9:30-11:00am have an informal challenge court for racquetball players. Squash singles players who play challenge court informally usually do so on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at about 6:30am. Occasionally, we will host a formal event, such as a league banquet/challenge court night or a small series of challenge courts for our Members. Challenge courts are free to Franklin Members..
Racquetball and Squash Court Reservations
Racquetball courts are reserved on the half-hour for one-hour periods (i.e., 3:30, 7:30)
Squash court reservations are made on 45-minute intervals (i.e., 3:45, 4:15, 5:00)
For all court reservations, only one reservation per person during prime hours. Prime time hours are located at the reservation desk, or simply ask the desk attendant over the phone.
Court Check In
All members must check in before court time. Failure to do so may result in court reassignment or removal from the court. If players are not present on a reserved court 15 minutes after the reserved time, the court will be considered open.
