Welcome to Franklin Squash Club!


Located in the heart of Pukekohe, the Franklin Squash club is your one-stop shop for year-round fitness; day or night, rain or shine.


Franklin Squash Racquets Club is located on Franklin Road, Pukekohe and has some wonderful opportunities to offer: all-weather fitness, fun competition and great social activities.


Online Squash Bookings

Members of our club can make court bookings online and come to the club for a friendly game against other members or visitors. This provides 24/7 access to the courts, provided they are not booked by other users or club activities. Emails are automatically sent out to confirm court bookings.

Communication with our members

The club’s email system is the main method the club uses to communicate with its members. There is also a notice board downstairs (outside court 1) that is used to give tournament and event information.

 

Bar, Lounge and Kitchen Facilities

After interclub, business house, ladder or tournament games, it is customary for the winner to offer the loser a drink. Our club has a great bar, lounge and kitchen facility. This is also for hire if not being used by the club. Any enquiries regarding hireage of the clubrooms should be directed to the club administrator via email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

A range of activities

The Squash “Season”

Whilst squash is a year-round sport, the squash season typically runs from March to November, and the activities listed below run over those months.

 

Interclub

Squash Auckland run three rounds of Interclub each year – Autumn, Winter and Spring. Players of all abilities are encouraged to sign up before our Club Captains organise the teams for each round.

Please note that to play Interclub, you will need to be a financial member of a club and have a grade. If you’re not currently graded contact the Club Administrator or someone on the committee and we’ll get you assessed as soon as possible.

 

Tournaments

Our club runs three (3) tournaments a year – our Franklin Masters tournament (35+ to enter); The Franklin Open and the Franklin B-Grade & Below tournament. For tournament dates and information for this year, please click on the Tournaments link.

Please note that to play in any tournament, you will need to be a member of a club and have a current grade.

 

Business House

Business House is a semi-casual, friendly competition for people who want a squash game in a competition environment, without joining the club. Business House is run on Wednesday nights, starting at 6.30 pm and generally finishing at 9.30pm. The bar is open for your after-match drink or to strategise before or after the game.

Four team members, with a range of ability from experienced to learner, play each night. Games run for a continuous 20 minutes, with a simplified scoring system. The cost is $250 per team, which generally sees you play approximately 20 weeks of competition. A great intro to the game if you want to see what it’s all about.

 

Juniors

Franklin Squash Rackets Club has a very active and successful programme for juniors (under 19). This involves weekly training sessions (spaces permitting) and interclub opportunities, as well as the chance to play on the Club Ladder.

 

Ladder

Our ladder competition is held on Thursdays, from 6.00pm. Ladder is open to all financial members, regardless of ability.

The club administrator organises your position on the ladder, your opponent (someone who is approximately your level) and the time. The draw is emailed out each week and the bar is open throughout the night, so you can socialise afterwards (after you’ve reffed a game).

 

Women in Squash

Our club runs six-week training courses for women, throughout the year, as the demand requires. These are designed for women who are new to squash, or just coming back after a long break. The courses are generally held on Sunday afternoons and cost $80 for the six sessions, although they are free for members of the club.

 

Special Events

From time to time, the club committee organizes a special event - like a ‘town vs country’ competition; quiz night or a Calcutta fundraising squash event. These are always a great social time and invitations to take part are emailed out to all members.

Because our club is run entirely by volunteers, there is also the occasional request for assistance with working bees and minor maintenance projects. These are also a great chance to get to know other club members and to give something back to the club.
