Access to the Club is becoming an issue for many reasons, mainly lost cards – if you do not have a card for access please ask at reception during office hours or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will have one ready and waiting for you. (There is a nominal charge of €10 for replacement cards to cover the purchase cost)
Gym & Facility Usage
We have had quite a few instances where non-members are using the gym and courts for their own benefit, which of course should not be happening. We are looking into more improved access control system to eliminate this and make access easier for ‘real’ members. In the meantime if you see anyone that is not a member in ‘your’ facility please do not hesitate to let one of our management team know straight away.
At your earliest convenience, please call to the club office to have your photo updated for your membership profile. Alternatively, please e-mail in a passport style photo to email@example.com

Each year we enter Senior Squash League Teams in the Leinster Squash Leagues Competition. Sutton pride themselves in the fact that we have committed and strong league teams and featured for many years in the winning circle.
Covid played a part in a fall off but we hope to return to our strength and plan to enter teams in the League for September/October.
Men's Teams are made up of 5 players and Ladies 4 players. It is a great opportunity to compete as a team in such an individual sport. Matches are Home and Away throughout Leinster and run until approximately March/April and it is followed by Cup Competition, which is a knockout system.
It is important to get commitments from players who will make themselves available for the matches each week both home and away. There are many divisions of different standards from Premier to Division 6.
