According to announcements released by Somerton Squash, the communities of Glenelg and Holdfast Bay have been served by this squash court in Adelaide for more than six decades. The six squash courts at this squash court Adelaide centre make this facility the largest in the state.
A city landmark since 1955, Somerton Squash has given joy to generations of Adelaide residents. It was taken over by new management in January 2021 and is being revamped through significant projects to improve functionality and beautify.
The centre will soon have a spacious foyer and a minimalist reception area. The sports bar upstairs will be the place for drinks with mates while catching up with the sporting action on a 75” TV. The sports bar is coming up above courts 4 and 5; it will be managed by Somerton Squash Club, a non-profit that generates funds to develop squash in the area and foster participation in the game.
The sauna, which had fallen into disuse, is being revived. The emphasis of the entire revamp is to add to the friendliness and appeal of the area while retaining its essential charm and utility that has endeared it to the locals for so many years. According to sources, the coffee zone above courts 2 and 3 will be an area for friends to enjoy a cup of coffee in a warm, friendly atmosphere.
With a tropical garden feel, the Beer Garden is set up behind the courts and is the most eagerly awaited addition. It will feature ambient lighting and timber decking.
Keyless entry at this institution now allows members to enter the premises for a game whenever they want to. They no longer have to wait for the squash courts to open. They can play when they want to, as many times a week as they feel like, and at low prices.

Somerton Squash said, “Our vision is to grow the game, increase junior participation and create an excellent environment for people to get healthy and relax afterward. We want to build a strong sense of club and grow that community feeling we already have. We have some of the best coaches and junior coaches in the country offering their services to grow the game. These players have achieved great heights as squash players and have done the accreditation and years of coaching. There will be no better environment for junior programs than Somerton Squash. Court 7 has been transformed into a commercial-grade gym with state-of-the-art cardio equipment, pin-loaded weights, cables, and free weights.
We are always looking for feedback on what type of gym equipment you’d love to see in there. And if there’s a less popular machine, let us know too. We value member feedback. This gym adds massive value for members who want to go the extra mile and get fit and strong. While this doesn’t sound as glamorous as a beer garden or a new sports bar, air conditioning has been unanimous about what people want next. Our sport can indeed be 365 days a year, but we understand how hot it gets in summer and cold it gets in winter. It’s a vast area to work with, but we are exploring the best options and have now narrowed it down to the best quote that will have the most impact.”
