Squash and Racquetball Courts

Changes due to COVID-19

Starting Monday, August 17, 2020, additional facilities in Dalplex will reopen, allowing current Dalplex, Sexton members/Dal student access to the squash and racquetball courts as part of the third phase of our reopening plan.

Members are required to book an appointment for all activites in Dalplex. 

  • Members are limited to one appointment per day.
  • Squash & racquetball court appointments are 60 minutes (1 hour) and includes the time to enter and exit the building.
  • Members will be able to book their appointments online 72 hours in advance starting August 14, 2020 or by calling 902 494-3372.
  • To book with your partner:
    - The first member books an appointment, noting the court #, day and time. Be sure there are two spaces available before proceeding!
    - Once confirmed, the second member should proceed to book the second spot of the same court #, date and time.
    - Call 902-494-3372 and have both member or BOO #s ready.

  • Members will be required to complete a COVID-19 health screening questionnaire during the booking process.
  • Members who do not show up for their appointments without notice may lose the ability to book future visits.

Arrive dressed for your workout, bring a full water bottle. We recommend you leave your valuables at home and bring only what you need for your activity.

You must have your Dalplex/Sexton membership or DalCard to access the building – no exceptions. Lost membership cards can be replaced for a $10 fee. Dal students who have lost their cards must contact the DalCard office to get a new one.
